If you get the airless valve extenders you wouldn't need to worry about it air leaking.

If you put alligator caps on you don't need extenders and you don't need to remove the "simulators" (aka wheel covers). If you decide to install a valve mounted TPMS you will need a 120* or so airless elbow for the outer dually or braided hoses.

The recipe for perpetual ignorance is:
Be satisfied with your opinions
and content with your knowledge.

As a retired equipment operator I'm not a strong advocate of add-on valve extenders. I find that they have a tendency to slow leak. When you screw off the valve caps or TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitor System) they unscrew also "causing leaks". The first thing I do as #1 mod is buy the correct single metal extension valve stems and have the tires broke down and installed. This not only makes it easier to check pressure and add air but gives a lot better support for the TPMS. They now extend well beyond the hub caps.

Yes, I have a system on my TT. It provides continuous air pressure and tire temp on a small screen suction cupped to the dash. I don't remember the brand name and the TT is in storage. The only thing I'd do differently is buy the type that allows air to be added "thru" the individual monitors on each wheel. I have to unscrew each monitor to add air, then replace it after airing up the tire, which is sometimes a bit inconvenient. For less than $400, I get a lot of piece of mind with my system so I'd definitely purchase them again.

The valve you see in the rear is most likely the extension for the inner tire. Look in the slots on the wheel cover for the outer tire valve.
