Need installer of Borg Tire stems for Sprinter

Ok I have tried several truck tire service centers in my area Levittown pa 19055.
But they were not able to get them to seal any one in the new Jersey and Pa area have a tire place that installed their Borg sprinter extensions valve stems?

Sounds like it should be a pretty routine move, so did they give you an idea of what was not sealing or why? Did they say there was something odd about the Sprinter wheels? Maybe a mismatch from what they normally install?

Sounds like a little bit of lack of inspired thinking. If one kit doesn't work, I might assume we needed a different kit as borg certainly seems to have a large variety. Never got into using them but getting good service does seem to be hard at times.
I'm with you though on not wanting to agree to a "slight leak"!!!

Consider calling Borg to make sure you have the correct stems & o rings needed for your rims. I had a similar problem with a slow leak due to a wrong or miss installed o ring.

Not for a Sprinter but a WH chassis - my installer had an issue getting them installed and resisted calling Borg.

I insisted he call Borg so finally he did. Problem solved in short order. At least in my experience Borg was responsive once involved.

I have had these on for 4 years and about 15,000 miles with no issue.

Slight leak

You didn't say how much pressure was lost or if you drove on under-inflated tire. Are you running TPMS? If so what was the lowest pressure reading? What is your required pressure?

I never made it out of the shop they would not leave the stems on leaking too unsafe so they put the rubber ones back on all for free

I had Discount Tire in Santa Fe install Borg stems in all six tires. I had read up on the install process before hand and was in the shop area while the install was being done. At first the installer got it wrong and had a leaking seal, I point out the error and then all of the rest went just fine. They only charged me $30 for all six tires.

Did have a small issue that with the caps on the front TPMS sensors would not screw on. I called Borg and they send me replacements right away and every thing was fine. Great service. Discount Tire did not even charge me the redo on those stems.

IMO- great product and service...

I had Discount Tire in Las Cruces do mine. No problems whatsoever. Borg valve stems do not require an advanced degree to install.
