I recently purchased the 8 inch straight metal valve extensions for the inner dualrims on our MH. My question is:
1. Will I need to put it through an oblong rubber grommet that fits on the outer wheel hole or will it be secure enough without one? If so, I saw the grommets on a website somewhere but can't remember where.

I would want something securing them, But I've not seen anything like your speaking of. I have hoses secured to the center cap.

You might want to take a look at this SITE.
They sell the long metal valve extensions and stabilizers. Maybe you can buy just the stabilizer from them.

Could you be a little more descriptive of the "hoses" that you mentioned?

Thanks for the link. I've heard of these people and will give them a call Monday and see if they will/could sell me the grommets only. Here is another site that a RVNet member suggested.http://www.alcoa.com/alcoawhee..._stabilizer_kits.asp

JC2;

I have Alcoa wheels on my MH. I had the rubber extensions and had problems with slow leaks. I purchased the long stem kits which came with the stabilizers. I sure like them as no more leaks.

i am using 4 HALTEC 90 deg valve stem extensions from haltec.com to facilitate mounting my new tire pressure and tire pressure sensors from TSTTRUCK.COM.
the haltec product is very high quality. check out their website for your needs.

I had the shop where I have my service done order and install them. I believe they were from Alcoa. They looked just like the link in your previous post. The stabilizers were sized to fit the holes in my Alcoa wheels.
