Or a variation thereof.
The clamps are available separately, but at that low price....

I doubt those would fit the OP's Class C wheels, but maybe he can find ones that will fit here:

Great idea but they are mighty proud ($$) of their kits.

Do NOT use these. I have them and they flex too much especially with the TPMS senders installed. I they end up bending outward towards the tire. I have bent them back but the next time I look after driving they have bent back out. I am worried about the possibility of metal causing these brackets to break. Also, on my previous motorhome the Braded house leaked causing a blowout. I only have them because that was what came with the motorhome when I replace the currently 6-year-old tires I will switch to the rubber grommets to stabilize the inside dually tire valve.

Where are you going to buyer the rubber valve stabilizes?

I can only locate as part of a valve stem package. Have the valve exstentions.

Mine have been on the wheels since new and don't bend at all. I'll see you anecdotal experience and raise you two years.

That looks like what we had until the Frieghtliner recall. First recall was to install those in 2021 then in 2022 they had a recall to remove them and replace it with just an alligator valve. Which is a PITA.

They did that to me as well last year.

It's a lot of work to do yourself, but my own self satisfaction of a no failure in the future is well worth the effort.

I will edit in the thread link I refer to.
