Can anyone confirm that the OEM tubes are fitted with metal valve stems? It looks like that is the case but I didn't check carefully when the shop guy was putting new tires on over the weekend, though I meant to.

I am planning to add TPMS sensors and from RV experience I know that they are not safe with rubber stems (which can fatigue and crack under the small additional weight/vibration of the sensor).

Never heard of a problem with a metal stem (and the motorcycle valve stem is much shorter than the one on an inside duallie wheel).
