Default Rubber stem for TPMS?

I remember someone claiming that they had a shop replace the aluminum stems with rubber ones that worked with the TPMS. Anyone have a brand or a link? Damn things are really ticking me off, 4th one broke today and at $40 a pop to get the tire demounted, new stem and nut it is getting a bit old.

Some safety feature, in 25 years of driving I've never had a valve stem go bad until I got the aluminum crap that they used on this truck.

If your dealership is replacing them with the old metal style, they need to catch up with the times.... my local dealer is replacing the old ones with the newer OEM rubber stemmed style and no problems since.

I've been having them done at the local tire shop, guess I'll have to make a trip in to the dealer.

Looks like they must be replacing the entire TPMS with the 2010 and up version.

FYI:

Just bought a set of 4 for $68

Unfortunately now I need to decide if I'm going to chance 400 miles of towing with no spare or get the one bad stem replace in the next couple days and then replace them all when I get new tires.

Did you check for compatibility? The link on your post says they won't work on a 2009 Ram 1500 SLT. I'm sure you did but just cheking, or are you just using the stems?

They are 433 MHZ just like the stock ones on an 09 and doing some checking around, 2010 stems are what they have been retrofitting onto 2009 rams.

Can't use just the stems since they attach in a different way to the sensor than the 09 which is a through fit rather than screw in.


Did the hi-lift trick and pulled the sensor out of my tire, so for the short term I'll just pick up one more metal stem kit and fix it until I'm back from vacation and ready to buy the new tires

Hope they work out for you, I'm not saying they won't but the 2009-2010 P/N is 56029359AB for the aluminum stems. The rubber equivalents are 56029398AA for the 2010. You ordered P/N 56029398AB, so I don't know the difference between the AA and AB. They're all 433 MHz.
