Tpms tst 507

So I've pretty much settled on the TPMS system from TST, the 507 color sceen with the cap sensors. That is, if the caps will fit in the opening in the front wheels of my 2017 ACE 30.2. The valve stem access holes are pretty small and the caps would have to recess completely behind the wheel opening. For that reason I believe the flow-thru caps won't work. The caps also need to be put on with a small custom installation tool. The rear ones will be no issue to get in place my only concern is the front. Anyone with the similar model to mine have the TST 507 and if so what challenges did you have installing the front caps...if any?? Thank you in advance for your inout.

I used 45 degree stainless valve extenders on my ACE.

I had those as well but they leaked and I ended up with 26 lbs in one of my front tires...not really trusting those to be a solution.

I took my wheel simulators off and left them off because the hand holes were too small. Now I can get in there and use no extensions at all.
For the caps, I took the spinning lock cover off so they just screw on like an oversized dust cap.

Ah thanks. Good to know the option to remove the cover exists.

I have 6 of the flow through. I cut slots in the simulators for the stems. The only only problem is I have to remove the simulators in the winter when I need to add air. I have had them on my Hurricane since it was new and never had a leak. I also have a pair of the standard ones on my dolly.
