Here is a blog post on valve extender hoses.

And here is a thread answering the question you asked (simple search on valve extender hose found it)

Thanks GL1800Rider, that's what I bought, I got them from Amazon for $20.41 with tax on Sept 19, 2015. Mine are working fine. I did have an issue with the wire spring and Benagi here on the forum showed me how he did his and it worked better.

When I first got my 2861DS 3 months ago, I had to remove the wheel covers to reach the inner tires. One had a plastic extender. The other one did not. It was a pain to add air to the inside tires. I replaced all 6 valve stems with brass metal stems from TireMan. Also added internal mounted TPMS.

You might want to consider replacing the valve stems with metal ones.

Just be sure the outer end of the extender hoses are firmly tied down. You do not want them flopping around. Also they should be attaching to metal bolt in valve stems and definitely not rubber snap-in valves as vibration from small amounts of movement of the hose and TPMS sensor can fatigue the low pressure rubber valve stems.
