You say your tires are almost new. How were they balanced? If they had powder inside the tire for balancing, they should have used shrader valves with special screens to prevent the powder from doing as you described.

My problem was, when the new tires were mounted, they put a low pressure value core in the stem, replaced stem, problem solved.

The morning after my new 22.5 tires were installed, I was removing the cap to check the air pressure when the RF valve stem broke right at the base of threads and the end of the stem including the valve and the cap disappeared into the cosmos... (also lucky I was not in the way).
Tire dealer sent repair truck, he raised the front wheel with the leveler, used a jack stand, broke the bead and put a new stem in without removing the wheel or the tire. I was impressed...
The brass valve stems were new!!
