My Class C Winnebago came with braided short extrender for the inner dual. Nothing for the outter. Have to use a dual chuck for air. I want to buy a TPMS and need to be able to screw on the transmitters. With my existing setup, I can't. No easy access to the outter stem and the inner extender is short.
So I was looking at the looking at his set from CW.

I have heard that these tend to leak. The airless ones won't work with the TPMS. Has anyone had luck with these?

Have used similar ones for years on the trailer duals (yes duals on the trailer). Use clamps to secure them to the outer rim and they hold the Pressure Pro sensors just fine.

They will eventually wear out though, mine only have about 60k on them and are still fine.

I had mine installed by my dealer. They used pop rivets to attach the brackets to the hubs - both inside and outside wheels on the outside hub. Added the TPMS and they've worked fine for 40,000 miles.


Retired and visiting as much of this beautiful country as I can.

Am going through the same thought process...I did a post very recently entitled, "Any Experience With WheelMasters?"...Wheel Masters are steel braided and rubber extensions...you should find it easy...I don't know how to link the thread to this note...it had a lot of good information for me...maybe you might find some of it useful...PM me if necessary...

I had the same braided extenders until I recently instaled Borg stems.
I had 1 loosen up in 2 years I used them. Be sure they don't touch the rims when they go through the holes because the vibration will cause them them to rub a hole in the extenders. Next to the Borg stem,these were my next favorite.

Can't use Borg stems as I want to be able to rotate the tires to maximize wear. Thanks for the tip on making sure they don't touch the rim to prevent wearing a hole in the hose.

I saw those at CW today and they looked a bit long for the 16" wheels. Is there too much slack in the hoses. I guess if you add the TPMS, you'll know right away if they leak.
mikeleblanc413- did you get yours yet?

Mike,

Just use the "Advanced Post Form" like you do to link pictures. There's another icon marked "Link." What I do is open the webpage I want to link to in a second session/tab. Then once I'm in "Advanced" I can do a Copy/Paste from it to the RV.net thread.

Sagecoachdriver,

Unless you are constantly on the road, the tires will die of old age before you wear them out. I don't see much value in rotating the tires. The Borg stems are a quality product and I wouldn't be without them. I have heard too many horror stories related to the braided valve stems.

Horse Doctor- My Ford chassis tends to wear on the outter front edges and I rotate them to the rears every 7-8K. Otherwise, I would only get 15K out of the front tires. Tires last only 30K and must be replaced because of cracking.
