Need Recommendation - Tire Valve Extenders

Greetings!
I have recently purchased TST TPMS. I now need Valve Extenders for my rear double wheels. Also on front wheels need short extender to clear the hubcap.
My question is: What is a good quality brand to purchase?
What length of extender do I need for rear wheels?
Many thanks for sharing your wisdom.

I use the pass thru sensors on the inside tires .I am able to remove the cap then I use 2 six inche stainless steel extensions to top off.
I tried leaving the extensions on but was concerned about bouncing and road debris get caught on them.
I took the 2 extra sensors and used them on both spare tires.

Call TST....I needed extenders on mine and they recommend a specific brand that works well with their caps. I forgot what brand it was.

Don't get the screw on extenders. They will cause you trouble. Go to a good heavy tire shop and have them install long valve stems. Best money spent ever.

Amen. I have seen too many RVers that have extenders cause failures. Anything from being cut by the hubcaps with vibration to not holding air and preventing TPMS from working. I have 10” valve stems on my inside duals. They extend through the outer wheel where a rubber grommet supports the stem.

Thank each of you for sharing your experience and wisdom.

I asked the TST dealor what was the best valve extenders. They highly recommended Wheel Masters. With a little concern, I have purchased that brand extenders and will have them installed.

When our tires “age out” we will have long valve stems installed by tire company so extenders will not be necessary.

I do hear your concern for damage to the extenders and the problems that will cause. Will make sure out TST TPMS system is working.

Thanks again for your responses, and links.

Do you mean the stem coming out of the wheel is 10" long on its own? Wow! Never knew they made those. Brand?

Borg Dully extended brass valve stems from the tire supply shop link referenced above is one of the best investments we made.

Any good Truck tire shop can install them for you.

I agree with those recommending "extended valve stems" that replace your existing valves over "valve stem extensions". Going with quality valve stem extensions until you need new tires is an option, although I've read posts that quote installation costs as low as $25 - $30 or so per tire. The tire doesn't need to be completely removed from the rim, but the seal needs to be "broken" to provide access to the inner end of the valve stems.

I had Borg extended valve stems installed on mine when I replaced the tires after buying my MH.
