Dually valve stems - are these OEM?

We recently bought a 2002 HR 30 on a 2001 F53 chassis and I'm wondering if this valve stem setup is OEM?

I can't confirm it that set up is OEM, but I had the same thing on my first DP that was built on a Freightliner chassis.

Not OEM. I would ditch those extensions and go to a truck tire shop and get long valve stems installed. Best mod ever.

My 2009 HR has the same tire cover as yours except mine is a 10 lug yours looks like 8 lug. Other than that, mine is exactly like yours. Eventually those braided extensions will leak. I would replace them with the dually valve like has been mentioned. I will find the website for those dually valves and post it for you.

The above site is an example for you. I can't find the original website I had. You can search for Dually Valve Stems. I still have to replace mine. A tire shop will have to install them for you, unless you have the tools to do it yourself. That would NOT be me

After having problems with extensions such as the ones on your rig, I had one piece valves installed and I'm very happy with them.

Those extensions are most likely from a company called "WheelMaster" as are the chrome plated beauty covers. I bought a set of them thinking they were the best available. Unfortunately, both inner extensions failed. There was no indication of any damage to the stainless steel braided coverings. They are only there for looks. It's a pain to have to take off the beauty rings and shove your hand through the handholes to check the tire pressure but it can be done if you have small hands.

After looking around for replacements, I went back to Wheelmaster for their extensions that use Goodyear 2 ply "rubber" hose. "8006 2 hose kit for 16"-19.5" inner dual wheel" - See the image below for this kit.


For the outer wheels, you can use the 135 degree valvestem extensions like these:

There is nothing wrong with the extensions he has. Yes they will stat to leak over time but usually that is because the o-ring gets old and starts to dry out. i had no issues for 7 years. Darn that is about the same time you need new tires so just replace the o-rings then or go with the extra long hard valve steams which will need new o-rings in 7 years anyway when you replace the tires..
If it ain't broke then don't fix it.

Although "If it ain't broke then don't fix it" can be a good idea at times, I can't agree with you on this one. Why not just eliminate one potential weak link when it comes to keeping the tires inflated and avoiding a problem that can be costly and very inconvenient?

If they fail in 1 year than yeah, not worth it. But all these messages of "mine leaked so I trashed them" seem kind of silly without also noting how old they were. And if they just need new o-rings that's a no-brainer.
