Trying to install new TPMS

Purchased TST tire monitoring system. Trying to install it now. On my rear duals the inner valve stem looks impossible to reach. Am I going to have to remove the outer wheel in order to install sensor? Or does somebody have a special trick?

My TST has the tool that you use to put sensor on, which is very hard on rear duals of truck. I have saw some that have used Gorilla glue on the sensor so you don't have to use the tool and can put on by hand. Makes it alot easier to put on rear duals. Just depends if you can get your hand inside the dual. If not, might look at going to extensions so valve is outside of dual and easy to reach.

I've got extenders on the inside tires and the installation was easy (once I removed the trim). A local tire company should be able to install them for you.

I used Gorilla glue, worked like a charm, recommended by TST for situations like inside duals.

I have extensions on both inside and outside duals and they've been on there since 2001. No problems and the TSTs work fine.

I have extensions that connect to the hub of the rear duals. Makes it easier to add air if needed. I think I may use the glue on all of my sensors to make it faster to take off and on for airing tires.

Where are you using the gorilla glue? I have the sensors that spin to help prevent theft and need the tool to install them. I have to take the wheel simulators off to put the sensors on the valves of my outside dual wheels, and those have the 120 degree valve extensions. I have extensions on the inside wheels and can put the sensors on without removing the wheel simulators.
