Dually Valve Stems

I've decided to replace the braided extensions currently on our 08 Allegro, Ford chassis, 19.5 wheels, with Dually stems but have a few questions. Other than looks is there a reason to get chrome or brass? Is there any reason why a flow thru sensor won't fit on the extensions? Is there any problems with installing the Dually stems on the 19.5 wheels since they have wheel covers, (hub caps?). Any suggestions on where to buy them?

Thanks,
RJ

They can be had at Dually valve kits for Motor-homes, Busses and 6-wheeled chassis

I put them on our 1999 F53 Ford with 19.5 wheels after having a braided "leakless" extension fail and ruin a tire. I went with the chrome for the looks, but other than that, under the chrome is brass. There is should be no issue with a TPMS monitor. The inner stems, due to the length, come with a rubber support/grommet that fits in the hand hole in the wheel and provides extra support. I also had the chrome wheel simulators ( wheel covers) and there were no issues with the dually stems.

I had extended valve stems put on my duals where I bought my tires (they didn't charge me for them, nice perk). I had tried different extensions and had leaking problems with them all. With actual longer valve stems (yes the tires have to be unmounted) that is no longer a problem. TPMS mount without problem.

If your going to install the flow thru TPMS sensors on your valve stems, I would recommend getting a shorter valve stem. The sensors I used added nearly 2" of additional length. This really puts the sensor way out there. Next time, I'm installing shorter valve stems. Just a thought....

I like the Cat's Eye Tire Pressure Equalization System. It ties both of the dual tires together so that equal air pressure is maintained in both of the dually tires. I can check air pressures in the dually tires with just a glance on a walk around. If I need to add air its added at just one spot.

I heard about them on these forums and after checking them out, decided that that was the way that I wanted to go. They work great for me.

OK so instead of just one flat tire you will have 2 flat tires. Well I'm not sure I like that too much. I'll just add the TPMS System and valve extenders.

The CAt's Eye system has check valves in them so both don't go flat.

The ones I used to use kept the two tires at equal pressure down to 80 psi. It would then isolate the good tire at that pressure.

I use these, same as cats eyes only different. You purchase them with the correct PSI for your tires.
