I had a flat tire last summer(right rear outside dual). I had valve extenders on the original valve stems. While trying to find the leak I found I couldn't air up the tire over 50 pounds. I accidently hit the valve stem and it leaked. The rubber part was cracked. I figured it was from the valve extenders moving while the truck was in motion.I went to a tire shop and had brass valve stems installed in all the tires. Now there is a rigid base to put on the valve extenders. I now take off the wheel inserts to fill my tires for towing and to air down when not towing. I think it cost around $150. to do all 7 tires.

By all means get the correct metal stems for the sprinter. The rubber stems are only rated for 65psi.
I do not why we get the rubber stems on the Sprinter chasses when they know that the Sprinter will be used as a base for a MH.
