As has been stated by others, you do not rotate tires on a motor home. Tires and wheels stay where they are installed and tires replaced as they age out, not wear out because of milage.

TPMS work without any problem using the dually valves.
ONLY WAY TO GO.
Occasionally there is a need to rotate tires on a motorhome. In my case the Goodyear 670's on the front were rivering at about 40K miles after about two years. Took the fronts off and rotated to inside rear.

That will work if you've got all steel wheels. If you've got aluminum wheels you'll find that the fronts are aluminum polished on the convex side only, the outside rears are aluminum polished on the concave side only, and the inside rears are standard steel wheels. So unless you don't care about the looks you can't do much in the way of rotating.

The rotation included dismounting, remounting (and balancing) the tires so that the "shinny" sides would be facing out. I have four aluminum and two steel wheels.

I have a 45 stems on the fronts wheels, along with a TST flow-through sensors.



For the rear duals, I have two of these per side. These can be removed with either a wrench or pair of pliers and provide support for a sensor.

Just a word of caution if you get the extenders, do not use the bracket that come with them, or get the more expensive that shut off the air flow if it breaks. My buddy had them on his, they get riveted to the hub cap, if the hub flies off like they are known to do, you loose all of your tire pressure before you can pull off the freeway. My friend put ty-wraps on his hub caps and on the extenders to stop that from happening. I tried the short extender on the inside but they are hard to tighten and loosen easily when you try to put air in. I just pop off my hub cap and then I can put my whole arm into the holes in the rims.

Dunner...
You have on the rear the exact same setup that the
truck center just placed on mine. They were their
recommendation.

The support, like yours is under the lug-nut.
The PO had new tires put on and the valve stems were so
short you could not find them.

Maybe if was buying new tires I might look at
the $100.00+ longer valve stems.

These seem to work good and now I can check them
as I should.

That's one of the two fake lug nuts that hold the beauty ring on.
