I jacked up the rig and did a side at a time. I use a torque wrench and do it according to the info in the Dexter manual. Don't forget to do the spare too!

I took the first 2 and spare tire to a local tire shop and they charged me around $10 a tire to install the stem and balance it. The 2nd time I had 2 tires and he didn't charge me anything. I buy from them regularly.

think I got 2 in a package for less than $5.

Mike you are right, my steel wheel has a larger valve stem hole than Aluminum rims on the ground.
The steel valve stems I bought came with two rubber bushings on them, one for the small valve stem hole and one for the large valve stem hole.
Both the Aluminum and Steel rims have the hole close to the edge of the rounded part inside the rim but no leak issues.
The rubber seals on my steel valve stems have a rubber shoulder on the seal that inserts into the rims valve stem hole.
If the standard rubber stem does not leak, the steel valve stem will not leak.
