Rubber valve extensions

Just brought our Canyon Star from Florida to Virginia. Once we got home noticed one of the dually valve stabilizer grommet was missing. Probably got lucky that tire did not go down. Is it ok to remove the rubber valve extensions until I find a grommet or more sturdy valve extensions? What are the opinions on rubber valve extensions.

Welcome to the Forum! Here you will learn a lot about your new rig.

Having had both rubber and metal ones cause problems and low tire pressures, I think they both can be a pain. I would go to a good truck tire shop near your principal residence and have them install new extensions and supports. That way, if you have problems, they can come out and fix them under warranty.

We just got our 2016 Fleetwood Southwind 34a!! We had those rubber extensions on the inner duelees, almost impossible to get a good reading on psi. Found a commercial tire repair place to replace w steel ones!! Problem solved!! $60 to pull wheels off and install new valve stems plus extensions!! Camping world could do for 4 times the price!! Also places like pilot or loves can do if you bring the parts. Yes what parts do I need was the problem. The commercial truck guys fix tires on the road and have everything you need!! Look for that and good luck!!
Good luck Keith and Sharyn��

Try Borg tire supply in California. I got my extenders from them. All metal. They are solid and never have leaked.

Another hearty "yes" for the one piece Borg metal extensions. They are well made, and you do not have the leaking that can occur with extenders (like we did). They also have a piece that goes into the hole in the wheel to hold the extender in one position so it does not bang around when going down the road.

good point Ludmilla about the rubber grommets.


You may need to take a picture of your wheel/hub cap so they can get you the correct rubber grommet for your application. One size DOES NOT fit all.

The dually valve stems you get from Borg tire supply are not extensions but solid metal valve stems that are long enough to reach through the outside dually. They replace the original stems. The tire has to be removed from the rim to install them.

This is their new website: Dually valve kits for Motor-homes, Busses and 6-wheeled chassis
