Will be buying new tire for the coach shortly to be ready for the up coming season. Currently, the inner rear dually has a braided extension. I've never had good luck with these and plan to replace them with solid ones when I get new tires. My tire shop is proposing solid extenders that replace the existing valve stem for $160. I see that you can also buy ones that screw on to the existing valve for a lot less money. Is one better than the other? It would seem that the expesive ones eliminate a schrader valve and a point of potential failure.

A lot less money usually means a lot less quality.

Most reliable and robust way to go is with SOLID valve stems....no extenders. Get the stems that work with your duallies. We purchased Borg solid valve stems.....a solid and reliable product.

Original valve stems. PAIN to check/add air pressure

Braided extenstions.. Well one worked.

Dually Valves.. Put 'em in when I got new tires LOVELY. Love them. Best thing I ever did tire wise.

My braided ones (one one side) were a continuous problem for a couple of years. I repeced them with the rubberized type and so far working well.

Had an inner tire go flat because of a failed braided extension. Had the tires unmounted and the BORG dually valve stems installed. Love them, no issues at all. TPMS sensors on all tires. Think that may have contributed to the braided extension failure even though sensor was secured as recommended.

Another vote for Borg valves. They're not cheap, but I like the way they are stabilized and you don't have to worry about that extension connection where you can't see it!

Same here--- had all kinds of problems with the braided extensions. Borg ( or similar) are the way to go
