Tire Valve Stem Troubles

Has anyone had troubles with the valve stems on your Dually? I have a 2017 F350 that I had the stems replaced several times. Mostly the outer rear tires and now the last one was a front stem. This is the forth valve stem in a year. All were replaced under warranty. Is it the stems or wheel design?

What is going wrong? I have had Ford Duallys since 2000, and never had an issue.

I would say they have a bad batch of stems at the shop you are using. Are they steel core stems? Are you doing some crazy mud bogging?

Is that an official Ford TSB?

Ford is installing OEM stems. I was told that the design allows for dirt to get under the seal and then eventually it leaks. I have had a Dually since 01 and this is a first for me. The only difference is now I live near the beach. Not sure that is doing it though.
