Rubber stems and TPMS?

I was looking at TPMS for my new trailer before it's first trip in April. I noticed the tires have rubber stems. Not ready to drag it back to Camping world just for stem replacements. So wondering if anybody runs TPMS on rubber stems and which system...

There are some on here that do. I’ve read posts about it. They’ll chime in...

I'm running the Eeztire pressure monitoring system on my new camper tire valves, which are rubber. My sensors are incredibly light, and now after over 2k with them on I haven't noticed anything wrong.

I ran the tire minder on my 27DSRL for over 3000 miles with no problems. The tires had the rubber stems. I have transferred them to the new FW and expect no issues.

I don't trust rubber stems, period, let alone with a TPMS sensor on them. I've had rubber stems fail but never had a metal stem fail. I had one metal stem start to leak at the base several years (decades?) ago but a quick partial turn of the nut holding it on fixed that.

I asked Discount Tire about rubber vs metal and they said they don't use metal anymore. The write up guy told me he uses a TPMS on his TT with rubber stems and has never had a problem.

Horse feathers! I had them install metal stems when I got new tires about a year ago. Out of curiosity, I called the same store just now and they still carry and install metal stems.


Frankly, I wouldn't believe anything that write up guy told you.

I have used TireMinder TPMS for several years. I have used them on rubber and metal valve stems without any issues. Here is a link to the Tireminder FAQ that addresses the question.

I also use a Tire Minder system on rubber stems - no problems.

I added them on my TSPS after I had a rubber valve stem start leaking due to flexing at highway speeds. I bought them at a local auto store and had a tire shop install them.

One less thing to worry about.
