Has anyone used tire valve stem extensions on their outer rear tires? If so, which version 135-degree or 180-degree? Any particular brand? How well do they work? Any leaks or other problems? Do they work OK with rubber valve stems, or ONLY with metal valve stems?

The solid metal ones are the only ones I'd recommend, too many stories of blow outs caused by loss of pressure by the rubber and/or braided ones. I've used these http://www.borgtiresupply.com/index-dv.htm and they worked fine.

I'm using the 180 degree solid extension to mount my Pressure Pro sensors on the rears. No problems in the two years I've had them on.

Thanks for the feedback. Did you have to rebalance the wheels after you installed them?

No. The sensors and extensions don't weigh enough to have a significant effect on balance. We are talking 1-2 ounces on a tire & wheel that weighs well over 100 lbs.

I have them on my Class C and have not had any problems. They were recommended by the place I bought my tires. The key is always check your tires before you get on the road.
