Earlier this year, I made a recommendation for 2005 and earlier GMC ENVOY owners to use GM part number 9591382 to comply with Pressure Pro's recommendation to use steel valve stems when using the Pressure Pro product. I am recinding this recommendation. I just had all of these valve stems replaced after 11 months of service. All started leaking at the point where the seal is formed between the wheel and the valve stem.

The only GM steel valve stems that will fit my wheels are the new stems with the PSI sensor built in (@$85. each!). The GM part # is 25774006. Part # 15234846 is also needed for each wheel. Time will tell if these will work. After looking at them, I am confident they will be fine.

Gary,

Does that mean that you shelled out over $300 for valve stems?!?!

Is the Pressure Pro system now redundant, or are the psi sensors non operational?

Sarge,
I shelled out $374.73 for the four steel valve stems! The first 100 mile went okay, time will tell.

The sensors, inside the stems are useless to me. There is no way to retrofit my ENVOY to receive the signals. I know of no after market receiver that can be used. The PressurePro sensors are still required.

Unfortunately, my wheels are not flat, but curved where the valve stem is located. These (and the previously mentioned stems that leaked) are the only steel valve stems that will fit my wheels.

Wow, bummer Gary. But I agree that you gotta do what you gotta do. Hopefully your issues are resolved.
