I'll be putting a new set of GY G670RV tires on my coach soon. I want to put extended steel valve stems on the inside duals at that time. I've seen these somewhere that are supported by rubber inserts in the "hand holes" in the outside duals(I have Alcoa aluminum wheels on the outside). I must not have bookmarked the website I saw these on because I can't find it now. Does anyone know of a source for these valve stems and rubber inserts?

TIA!

I've ordered before from Myers Tire Supply with good service.

The above link takes you to the main page where you can search under valve accessories to find your items.

This page has the rubber inserts and the extensions are here

Check with Borg Tire Supply. They sell Duallyvalves. They work great.

George, thanks for the tip on Borg Tire Supply. Only problem is their price is more than twice as high as Myers Tire Supply for essentially the same thing :-).

I'm new to the motorhome world and never had a dually so, please excuse me if this is a really dumb question. What is wrong with using a dual footed pressure guage and inflator instead of extensions?

Many people swear by the dual foot and many people swear at the extensions. Some extensions are prone to leaking or causing leaks. Sometimes it's easier to measure when you're on the road if you have the extensions, depending on what the station has available.

tps0424, the inside duals can be a real pain. They can be done with the "alligator" valves with the flow through cap(can be checked and filled without removal). However, the stem can be hard to locate and if it happens to be on the bottom of the wheel you practically have to stand on your head to see them through the holes in the outside dual. That's pretty tough for a lot of older folks. The steel extenders with the stabilizer grommets look like the way to go to me. The stabilizers kill the vibration that causes these to get fatigue cracks and leak. The braided flexible extenders are the ones with the most problems from what I hear.

The steel extenders with rubber grommet stabilizers came as OEM equipment on our Journey. Honestly, I'm not sure if Freightliner installed them or Winnebago, but they work great. I had tried the stainless braided extenders years ago on previous rigs and had nothing but headaches with them.

I agree the rigid ones are the way to go.

This is all new to me. On my Itasca, the innner stem must already be extended because I can get to that without any trouble.
It was the outer ones I was having difficulty with because they seem to face away from me. I boughta dual footed pressure guage and a dual footed inflator for my compressor only because I was having trouble with the outer wheels.
Do I understand correctly that what I have on my inner duals are steel extensions and that not every motorhome has them as standard equipment?

Correct. The key to the inner ones is what kind of extenders are on them. The ones that look like a small braided hose can cause problems. Even the solid metal ones can leak if they don't have the rubber stabilizers on them. As you said, the dual foot inflator and gauge take care of the outside duals that have the stems facing inward.
