I have an 18 F-450 and just looked mine over out of curiosity of your post and found no issues. I had an 11 F-450 before the 18 and never had a problem with it either.

My vote is to dump the extenders and get dually valves. Cost ps a bit but solves your tire inflation worries. And makes installing a TPMS system a breeze. I consider both items to be essential kit.

Have these concerns with our rig also, tired of the stock valves leaking/turning, etc. What are the dual valve setup that everyone is using out there?

Dually valves. Available for any dually wheel chassis. The time to install them is when you replace your tires although I like them enough that I paid a local tire shop to remove and reinstall my tires just so I didnít have to wait.Click image for larger version

I have these on my 19 and the outside tire stems keep turning inward. Does not matter how tight they are, they still turn inward. Having a hard time getting one sensor on because of the turning.

valve stems - superduty

I also have a 2017 F450 and no problems with valve stems on this end. As far as valve stems I use these for my TPMS sensors and they work just fine.
