Metal Valve Stems Isata 3

When the aluminum wheels are ordered, do all 6 wheels have metal valve stems, and the inboard duals have extenders?

I believe they should have rubber stems, but I don't think they have extenders for the inner rear wheels. Can easily be added aftermarket though!

Just got a 2018 this month with the aluminum wheels. The inside duals had rubber valve stems and a short plastic extension. I have since added metal extensions and will at some point change to a metal valve stem.

Thanks Mike. If we go with the MB class C I would like to keep the TPMS we have on our class A. While the TPMS will work on rubber valve stems, it become problematic with an extender added on.

For what it's worth, I took my new 3 FW to a tire shop to have the rubber inside dual replaced with metal and they could not fit the metal fittings in the narrow spacing on the rim. Have placed 5" metal extensions on the rubber, still working on getting them to function properly. Also had the tires balanced at the same time.

Mine also came with rubber stems and an extension on the inner duals. Very hard to check air pressure. The aluminum wheels have metal stems. I added a long metal stem to the inner duals.
