Best 90 Degree Valve Stems?

Looking for a quality set for some aftermarket wheels. Looks are great, but functionality is most important. Don't wanna have to worry about them leaking.
I have seen a couple that look pretty good. SportbikeTrackGear sells these for around $30. They use a lock nut to stay secured.

Bikemaster also makes a similar set for about $20

Any experiences with these, or recommendations on better ones?

Those are actually 83 deg valve stems.

I got mine from here. They're all pretty much the same thing.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

Thanks SkyDork. I'll check them out. I know some have a plastic base vs all aluminum. Just want to make sure I get the right ones the first time around.
Here are the Ariete's from SBTG. First pic didn't post correctly.

The Arietes are pretty popular as well. They're all aluminum and I used a set of those on my old bike. You shouldn't have any issues with them if you go that route. I wouldn't want any plastic ones, that's for sure.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

The Bridgeports come in blue to match your new CZs though.

It's funny, the only Ariete's still in stock at SBTG are the blue ones
Do you think there is any quality difference between the two?

Just curious, what's the lifetime of these angled valve stems? Or how often do you guys replace them (if any)?

No differences that I would expect. I'm sure they're the same thing.

You don't replace them like the rubber ones. Once installed, you leave them alone. The valve cores are replaceable just like any valve stems if there's any leak issues. But the valve body is permanent.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.
