Source For Metal Valve Stems For GMC ?

I have the Pressure Pro tire pressure monitoring system on my 2007 Airstream and my 2006 GMC Sierra 2500HD. The pressure Pro system recommends the use of metal valve stems and my trailer dealer was able to install them on my trailer. I'm having a problem in finding metal valve stems that will fit the 2006 GMC with the optional cast aluminum wheels. I would like to get a model number and supplier of metal valve stems that someone on the forum has used to install them on a similar truck. Thanks

Your GMC w/duramax doesn't have the factory t/p monitor?

Our 06 Burb came with factory metal stems on the alloy wheels.

Any tire shop should have metal stems. I replaced mine on the road in Canada when the Chinese ones started to fly off at 65 mph. 2 went in less than a week.
