I'm fairly sure that there are folks that have that brand. Just type
tire tracker in the search window. I don't think you will
find any posts in the Creek section.

Regardless of TST's response, I stand by my post as it was a recommendation
to a specific individual in response to a specific request.
Therefore it really does not matter whether you can or cannot mount the sensors on rubber stems it's whether you should or should not within the narrow scope of the specific situation I responded to.
Ducky

Let me ask you something, is there one brand of metal valve stems that you would put in or just get one from the tire shop. about what would a good metal stem cost, my tire shop just said they were $6, He said it would cost $8 to install them

Ducky and anyone else for that matter

What would you do, TST sells the 507 for $413 total plus 3 yr warrenty,,Tweetys sells 507 for $399 total with 2yr warrenty,,RVupgrades sells 507 for $389 total with 2yr warrenty,,RVpartscountry sells 507 for $364 total plus 2yr warrenty,, all the prices are with shipping included. What would you do? I know TST makes the 507 and they give a 3yr warrenty, I am at a lost here, just want to know your advice or from anyone

According to Mike, the 507 Flow Thru sensors are heavier than the 507 sensors.

I called TST today and I wanted to know if I could put the 507 flow thur on rubber valve stems and I was told that I could put the 507 caps on without metal valve stems on, can't remember who I talked too, it was a man

Sure you can. As the über source said,
as long as they are not too long and in good
shape you should be ok.

As for the cap sensors being heavier than the flow
thru I was referring to the 510's not the 507's which
are lighter as OC wrote in your quote.

Metal valve stem brand. I already had them so I have
no idea who made them.

Which source to use? I went with the lowest price. Warranty
differences did not exist at that time. So all I can say is that it appears
you have a choice between wallet and warranty.

Most standard "snap in" rubber valves are rated for 65 psi.
If you don't see brass other than the threaded part is is almost surely a 65 psi limit valve. Why take a chance?

I do. Bought mine because they seem to have better than average if not the best warranty at 3 years. Good customer support too.

All of those prices are high, I bought the TST with flow thur sensors from Valcum tire for $229.00. It has a 2 year warranty. You can install them on rubber stems that are not longer then 11/4" long per TST. You can get brass high pressure stems for $3.00 and the goodyear dealer charged me $10.00 a tire to install them. I tried them on rubber only 1 1/4 but did not like the movement of the stem. Also some rubber stems will not allow you to screw them down far enough depending on the valve stem installed.
