The ones you need are from Borg AKA Your Tire Supply. Dually Kit

They will look like this. The valve stems for Class C Duallys. I have a set from another vendor that was the original maker of them and have been on my Class C for over 10 years with no leaks or problems. You can Check the pressure on all tires in a matter of minutes.

Valve stems

DO NOT put the braided extenders on, they will leak and if they come loose from their mount on the wheel they will cause a catastrophic air loss.

I highly recommend the Tire Man valve stems. They are not extensions. The tires must be removed from the wheels and the valve stems replaced. I had my local tire shop do this for me when I had my Class C.

found mine at Pep Boys auto parts but I had to get two sets because they are short. My previous ones were the armored steel type which destroyed themselves AND my wheel simulator. Brand same SLIME.

These are the ones that I have but.

Tire-man is no more. The site is still up but none of the phone numbers work, the email bounces and looking at google street maps it looks like someone else has the shop now.

Sadly Chuck,the owner passed away and none of his kids wanted to keep it going. I suppose that the website will eventually die as did Chuck and Sue.

Find an established truck tire company, and they can take care of your needs. This is truck tire situatio, ano Auto tire. Many Auto Tire places do not have the knowledge or equipment to properly handle truck problems.

I agree, with one caveat. I've found that Discount Tire (I've dealt with 3 separate ones in 3 states) seems to have the experience and training to adequately deal with duals. Over the last 17 years I've had 3 duallys and had valve extensions on all of them. As one poster advised, steel valves are a must; using flexible valves is inviting trouble. I've used both flexible braided extensions and steel rigid extensions and found the latter are more reliable and less subject to damage. Hope this helps.

Flexible valve stem extenders are almost guaranteed to leak, sooner or later. I've tried three different brands and they all failed. One immediately, and the other two after differing periods of time. Now I use a tire chuck and pressure gauge specifically made for duallies.
