I've seen complaints of the valve stem and they are probably meaning the valve itself. I put the air gun on the tire valve and the valve broke off inside the air gun. I tried another wheel and noticed lots of white dust under the cap on the valve, that one broke off in my hand. The tire shop broke off the third one trying to remove the cap. The fourth had lots of white dust beginning and I was told to consider replacing that one too. I replaced all four vales and sensors on my RAM 1500 truck. There should be a recall. This isn't right.

Belle Tire did great work. Unfortunately, they see this so often, I didn't even finish explaining what happened before they told me the sensor and the stem would be $54.99 out the door and that they stock all the parts. If it's that common, why is there no recall? I was told to expect the rest to go soon.

The rim valve stem nuts rust off aluminum schrader valve causing Instant flat tire: There should be a recall on all of these defective schrader valve stem monitors. Problem causes an instant flat tire at any speed at any time and destroys your tire at high speeds. What happened was the steel nut rusts off that holds the schrader valve stem monitor on inside of the rim and it instantly falls off inside the rim causing the truck steel rim to drop on the road with a flat tire .

Major safety concern with possible problem causing a major road accident head on or sending the vehicle off the road.
