dual wheel valve stem extensions

Which type extensions have you all found to be the best. Also, are they easy to install or will the wheel and/or simulators need to be removed for installation.

I prefer "live" ones, they call them that because the only have pressure on them when you hook an air chuck/gauge to them, this way if they are damaged you do not have a lose of air

Oh I use Wheel Master brand on all my dual wheel apps

When I changed out the dual tires on our MH I found that I had to replace the inner tire extenders because the old ones wouldn't hold air on in the new tires/stems. I figured that the old stems and old extenders must have changed shape/size over the life of the old tires and the new stems didn't want to play nice with the old extenders. The problem went away with the new extenders.

I say that the Dulley Valve Stem Kit is one fine improvement for anyone with duel rears.

This site is just an example Dually Valve Stems — always shiny wheels and rv

DuallyValve extensions are solid metal and the tires have to be dismounted for them to be installed. Because of that I waited until I replaced the tires to put them on.
Now I wish I had done it years ago. They make it so easy to add and check the air in duals.

X2 on the Dually valve stems. They are the only way to go. Everything else is a problem waiting to happen. Dually valve stems are true valve stems and are as trouble free as the tires themselves. Only down side is they can only be mounted with the tires off the rims.
You will NOT be sorry if you get them. One of the best items I have added to my coach!
