Ive been thinking of getting the tst system for my dually and boat/camper trailers.
If you get the non flow thru, can you get away with running the, rubber with metal top, high pressure valve stems? Because i would have to have 14 valve stems changed otherwise.

I think it depends how long the dually stems are.

Mine are just the stubby ones, probably about 1.5 inches. Funny thing is the fronts have bent solid metal stems.
The 6 tires on the boat are stubby also and the 4 on the sabre has the stubby ones also

I just put the TST sensors on my fiver and boat. It is definitely recommended to put metal valve stems on your wheels. The little lolly pops put a bit of strain on the rubber stems no matter the length.

I bought these, to put on the trailer when I swap tires. Turns out, they are metal already.

Thats what im talking about. Those are what i have on my rear duals and trailers. I thought that was the kind oc was saying gave him problems???

I wanted to know if this kind was going to hold up or if i need solid stems with the non flow thru sensors.

Be fine with those.

Any stem, will have some flex. Has to have rubber at the bottom.

I used those stems even with the flow-thru, never had a problem. If you talk to Mike at TST he will tell you that they are fine as long as they are not over 13/4"s. When I bought new tires then I went to the metal ones. Other then that it would cost about 20.00 per tire to change them out. Now that is from TST themselves. Put 1000's of miles on with no problem at all. When they changed my tire and pulled the stem I looked at it, and never saw any cracking of the rubber part itself. I have never read or either I missed it that a FRF member broke a rubber high pressure stem as shown....Hope that helps MillerTime....

Kenny, these previous posts may help. as there is usually some confusion on what a snap-in TR600 HP valve stem (that you have pictured) actually is.

It's when people start using the terms "metal stems" and "rubber stems" is where it get's all messed up. If we would stick to clamp-in and snap-in stems terminology, then it would be much better.

Suggest you check your tire valves stems

metal tire valve stems

Suggest you check your tire valves stems

An actual clamp-in style valve stem (as explained in the links above and pictured below) has a rubber grommet at the base that acts as the seal, but a clamp-in style valve stem does not really flex when properly installed and torqued.

Thanks Glen!! Yes that helps!!
Like i stated, i would have to swap 14 stems our if those didn't work. I will try to switch to solid stems as i replace tires.
