3051s Wheel Simulator Oval Hole Sizing?

I plan on replacing my valve stems with brass dually stems that have a rubber stabilizer to hold the valve stem rigid in the simulator hole.

I measured my simulators and the hole appears to be 2 1/4" by 1/1/4". Can that be correct? By eye the tape seemed to read 2 3/4' by 1 3/4' but I traced the opening with a pencil and when I measure it it's the smaller number.

When I look online I don't see anything like that size. They are hard to measure because of the dishing of the simulator.

Does anyone here know what the correct size is??

The oval wheel holes match the ovals on my wheels and brass extended valves line up perfectly. I'm not sure what you mean by rubber stabilizer, I have rigid truck style valve extentions that attach right into the wheel and they don't move.

Thanks poppy and ned, I've seen those. I'm wanting to use solid brass extenstions that are permanent, not screw on. And, They come with a rubber "plug" that fits into the simulator "hand hole" to secure the stem. With these you can use TPMS systems that screw on to the end of the stem without worry of losing them.

I thought maybe someone knew the hole sizing. I'll go out to my RV at the storage place and measure again.

Here's a photo of type of stem I'm looking at - you need the correct hole sizing for that rubber stabilizer plug:

Mine are permanently installed into the wheel and the tire monitering system installed. If they're rigid why the rubber inserts.

Because with the wheel turning at 60 mph that 6" long rigid stem is going to oscillate especially with the TPMS valve cap on the end.

Creativepart,

When you figure out which set fits can you post the part number? I like the idea of the rubber grommet.

Thanks,

Scott

OK, I did find the answer to this question - I emailed the folks at Borg Supply. Turns out the valve stabilizers go in the wheel and not the Simulator. The whole in the wheel should be 4 1/4 by 2 1/4 Football shaped.

I haven't confirmed this yet, but will soon.

The parts to do the entire Coach are:

DL1FC - for the duallys :DL1FC Chrome Dually Valve Kit
and 2 ea VHVS8225 Front stems: VHVS8225 Reverse Mount Valve Stem Straight Qty:1

At least that's what the support guy told me. I haven't verified this yet.

Ordered the rubber stabilizers from shinnywheelsrv and gave up last weekend trying to get them in. Going to try these weekend using a heat gun to flex them up a bit

I finally ordered these in chrome rather than brass and had Discount Tire install them today. It was a ton of work and took the guy 3-hours. They charged me $150 which seemed right for 6-tires.

I'm super impressed with them. All stems are very rigid and easy to access. Much better than stock. They are so easy to reach now I'm going to wait and see on adding TPMS.
