I ran into the same thing. I had tires rotated and ask to have the extensions installed, they said they did not carry them but if I get some they would be glad to install them. I found a set out west while travelling. I had them installed when I bought new tires on the road. ( another story)
Just last month, we drove from below Houston Texas to Fayetteville NC. I arrived and backed the motor home into my sons drive way and we all sat on the front porch in the shade to talk.
All of a sudden there was a loud bang and the sound of escaping air. I ran around the rig until I found the right rear inside tire had blown the valve stem. Just blew it out.
I took the wheels off there and had a new stem installed. The dealer was not surprised when I told him what had happened. He said he got that a lot.
