Stay away from the screw on type, most of them leak. They are also not intended to be used with TPMS which keeps pressure in the stem all the time. Then they really leak. We went with Borg all around. Be sure and get the rubber wheel hole supports for them at the same time.

There are probably thounsans of people that have and use the braided extentions and never have any problem with them. There are "O" ring seals that are a wear item, that should be replaced at times.

Nothing wrong with the braided extensions, as long as you make sure and get ones that are AIRLESS. Meaning, no air pressure in the extension except when you attach a gauge or air hose. With those, it doesn't matter if the extension works loose, you won't lose any air since there is no air in them (extensions) to lose. I've been using those for years, they work great.

Have used the Borg dually solid valve stem replacements, too. Never could understand why, but they intermittently leaked air soo much, I finally gave up on them and went back to the braided extensions. Never a problem again. The U shaped ones that Borg makes for the outer duals work great, but something about those looong stem valves for the inner, they just would not hold air.

I'd recommend extensions, as long as you make sure whatever extensions you get are airless.

If you scroll back you will see where I posted "one worked one did not".. Guess what. they were airless types.

I'm curious as to specifically what you meant when you said that one of the braided extensions did not work?

By did not work, did you mean that it leaked out air? If so, I'm really curious how, as if they are truly airless, there is no air in them to leak out? They could work themselves completely loose, or even fall completely off, and still no air can leak as there isn't any air pressure in them except when you put a gauge or hose on it?
