    Probably a dumb question, but I’m picking up a set of steel wheels for my dually. I’m mounting new tires on them and want to put new valve stems on them. Any recommendations? The ones on the truck now are all metal with these caps on them.

    Does it have tpms?

    I'd do regular stems, with extensions that put it in the right spot to check easily.

    Nah it’s not fancy.
    I just didn’t know if I could use regular rubber ones or if I should go with the all metal ones.

    Rubber snap-in stems are good for 65psi max cold pressure. You probably want metal.

    ^^ this. If you are going above 65 psi then get the threaded metal valve stems. And, like @paradisePWoffrd said then you can use the adapter caps to get the extension hoses to make checking/filling your inner duals easier.

    You can always get the long brass stems where they can offset the hand holes in the wheels and bend the inner stem out through the hole so it's easier to air up. Or just get extension hoses.

    Y’all have any links to what I should order? There’s too much to choose from online.
