Braided here, no problems. I check them for rubbing and such every so often.

I had braided extensions ten years, no problems. When I purchased new tires I also installed Dually Valves an I am very happy with the install.

I kept cutting my hand on the aluminum mounts on the braided extensions when I washed my wheels. Clumsy me.

So I changed.

My neighbor also bought a 2012 class A Allegro and he is having the exact same problem. He just returned from a 2400 mile trip and found his valve stem rubber supports totally destroyed leaving the valve stem totally unsupported flopping around in the hole in the aluminum wheel. I will be calling the Tiffin Motor home company tomorrow to report the problem.
You would be WAY farther ahead if you got rid of the POS braided extenders altogether and replace them with the Borg Dually Valves.

No more problems and no more leaks.
