I've always read you should use metal valve steams.

You know I have heard that also however I can't find anything in the manual with the TST507 where it says that. I'm going to reread to see if I missed something.

Comes from those that have experience with using them...seems the rubber ones don't like the added weight over time

I'm running 65 psi in my truck's tires with rubber valve stems so it's not a matter of the air pressure but the extra weight of the TPMS sensors on the valve stems would make it advisable.

Thanks for the input all good thoughts. I think what I'm going to do is stick with the rubber stems until I change the tires out after this season (of if something happens sooner) first step will be getting them rebalanced. I will let the forum know how the stems/sensors hold up. If I didn't mention it I have short rubber stems about one inch

You might be lucky enough to make one season provided you don't travel very far or very often. Don't ask how I know.
