Discount tires put the new wheels and new tires on my Class C. The kids weren't real swift. They could not understand the video which showed them how to install the hubs on the Alcoa Rims. I had to show them how to do it. Then They were going to use the old rusty lug nuts. Had to stop them and get them to use the new ones with the builtin spinning washers. I get home and look and find I can't reach in to the inner valves to even get the cap off, let alone check the air pressure.

What kind of extension do y'all recommend for the inners? I guess I could just have them install those 3 inch long metal ones.

+1, they work great and last well. No leaks and support my TPMS sensors perfectly. I had the brass valves put on my toad also for the same reason.

Try find the LONG stems from like the Tire man used to sell. I bought a set a couple of years ago but forgot where I put them so I ended up with using extenders. One after a while would not allow air into the tire (?) and the others were always low after a while. Found the stems while cleaning up some storage space and had them installed, put air in last May and when O checked again this week had only lost 1-3 psi since. A lot easier to air up, but are PIA for shops to use a spin balancer, They do require some rubber plugs to keep from vibrating but they came with the KIT. Check camp world they may have them. I remember seeing them at one time along with spare rubber wheel inserts. I run Alcoa rims. Also check amazon and ebay for the things.

Unless you have metal valve stems, I wouldn't use extenders at all. I use a gauge with a long extension and valve caps that don't have to be removed to air up.
