As mentioned above, I also tied the wheel covers to the wheels.

J, oh I understand your reason, safty first is the number one concern and I agree. But just think, we are talking in this forum about "wiring" your hubcaps to the rims for safty sake. That would be an excellent selling point by some FR salesman on intial purchase, don't you think. I'm sure some alternative will evolve in the future, for now it's all just heads up information, to make readers of this forum aware of the potential problem.

If you have the air-flexx plastic extenders..GET RID OF THEM! Just spent 3 weeks on the road having to keep inflating the inner wheels of my sunseeke because they leaked and it was a pia to get air into them because of these pos's. Purchased an all steel stem kit from for $155 and had Ford dealer install ($400.00). These stems are not screw on extenders they a full length one piece stems that require removing the wheels and tires. They extend beyond the liner (hubcap) and allow you to add air with out removing the hubcap. Over time..definitely worth the expense.

The airflexx extensions should not be pressurized unless pin depressed. Were you still using the oem rubber valve stems? They leak pretty easily with wear from any extender attached. The vibration causes them to wear at the rubber base. I had one fail this way with a slow leak. No problems after switching all tires to short metal valve stems. I kept the airflexx so I could move them as needed when tires are rotated. No problems so far.
