Pinacle 16 inch rim valve stem size

I need to install metal valve stems on my 2015 Jayco Pinacle 38FLSA. I bought new tires and the tire store does not have metal valve stems. They told me to purchase them and they would install them. I bought some but they do not fit the hole ion the rim. Can someone please tell me what size the stem hole is so I can get the correct metal valve stems.

Wish I could help but I don't know. I'm very surprised the tire store did not have metal valve stems. Is it a major dealer? They couldn't even tell you what size you would need?!?!?!

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.

What hole are we talking about. Mine fit through the rim holes which are 4 x 3.
My problem was finding stems long enough to fit through the out side wheel from the inside wheel. I found lots of short ones. Even searched the auto parts stores. They even come with wire holders so they don't flop around while you drive.

Contact the manufacturer for the specs on the rims. My ‘13 5th had aluminum alloy rims from Tredit.
