Valve stem extenders for 351DS

I added remote tire pressure monitors to our 2014 GT 351DS but for the inner rear wheels concerned about the valve stem extender possibly failing due to the little bit of added weight. I have done some homework including receiving a couple of types of valve stem stabilizers but none properly fit the 19.5" rims FR puts on these coaches. Anyone have any luck finding either a metal or rubber grommet type that fits this egg shaped hole? Thanks.

Look on Amazon, type in Tire Valve Extenders there are all sorts and the best are the solid steel ones and they come in all lengths.

I also have tire monitors and a loose valve extension.
I just had a few of these practice golf balls and mad a slit in them which now surrounds the two inner tire monitors. It protects the monitor and stays on.

My dealer installed something similar to this on mine - very secure.

I asked my local Les Schwab to do it right. They installed braided extensions to make access very simple. They riveted the bracket to the hub cap.
