Also, see the attached photo of my front wheel. The metal stem isn't long enough to extend outside the wheel cover.
Generally, every detail one expects to be routine seems excessively complex on the MB chassis.
I have those same valve stems on the front of mine (mine might be slightly shorter) . They do offer two lengths for the front wheels. . All four of the stems can be bent slightly to center them in the hole. I used a deep socket on an extension and held the inner part with pliers covered with tape. If you don't want to bend the stems (bending OK per manufacturer) you can also cut away a little of the wheel cover. I did not want to do any cutting. As you can see it is also bath time for the little RV.
I tie my wheels covers and also slip a short piece of clear plastic tubing over the stem just in case a cover gets a little loose.
BTW, I have the TireTech ON system which is exactly the same as the Tire Tracker system. Hope this helps!
