Note that in general white zip ties are not UV resistant. Can deteriorate with sunlight.
I did similar fix, but with all black zip ties. Now at 50K miles / second set of tires without that type of failure.
Believe all metal stems are a better fix, but had trouble finding some that fit these wheels.

These will fit the 18 hole covers.

Are the rear straight stems a lot longer than the fronts? If so, do the stems get swapped when you rotate the tires?

Rears are longer and if you rotate tires you would need to move them. A tire expert once told me not to rotate tires on an R V unless moving from side to side. Most RV tires age out before they wear out. I don't rotate mine. That is just me.

You bet. One of the first things I did after buying my Solera was to replace the extenders with dually valves. I've had them on previous RVs and never had a problem. As someone said, there are different sizes for different vehicles.

khocke- Are these the flex extenders that you ziptie to the cover. I have not had any trouble thus far but have read the threads of those that have. My tire guy says he feels the flex extenders work very well.
Thank You

A number of folks on the sprinter-source forum vouch for the quality of these extenders from Tire Man also. Tire-Man: Kit #4-6DS Upgrade 18 Hand Hole Wheel

I think I'm going to buy a set of those for my new Forester MBS 2401R.

Also, Home Depot sells a stainless zip tie in the same section where they keep the nylon ones. I've used those to hold the wheel covers on my previous Class B Sprinter MH, and they do work. They are stronger and durable.
