Search TPMS in this and the Solera Forum for related threads. You will find links to valve stem upgrades, as well. This is highly recommended for TPMS sensors.
Typically plastic extensions have been installed at the factory. A lot of us had issues and replaced with quality one piece stems and TPMS systems like Tire Minder, etc.
Personally, since I made the switch, no more issues with losing pressure on my inner duallies due to the less than stellar factory extensions. I have also found that 78 PSI cold seems to be my sweet spot for ride and performance. This bumps up about 10 PSI per my TPMS on really hot days like Memorial Day Weekend just provided.
