14" Rims on 25 FT. 1998 Safari

I called Airstream to ask this question and they said they would get back with an answer. I called back a week later and they said they are waiting on the vendor to get back to them. That was almost 2 weeks ago and still no answer....

Question - Does anyone know what the tire fill stem hole diameter is on a 14" rim? 0.625" or 0.453"

I want to order a Dill TPMS and need to know the diameter to be able to order the right retrofit kit.

Thanks in advance for the answer....

Are you sure a 1998 Safari has 14" rims? I learn something new everyday I guess.

Send an email to Mike Newton and Dill. He was a big help to me when I ordered my Dill TPMS and he has been great on customer support after the sale.

I had the same question as you when I ordered my TPMS. Mike was able to help me answer the question quickly.

Yes, Steel rims with GYM ST205/75R14s installed.

Ridgerunner3 - I'll try Mike at Dill -

The only option I have right now is to have one of the tires broken down so I can measure the hole.....Going to replace the tires anyway but was hopeful that I could do everything at once.

UPDATE:

I decided to install 15" tires and rims and bought a set of Sendel T02-56545T rims which take 0.453" stems and had the sensors from the Dill 1504 kit installed along with the new Towmax STR tires.

Dill sensors were installed by the Firestone dealer that I bought the Towmax STR's from and the system works well but I do have to use the remote antenna that came with the Dill 1504 kit. Takes a while for the display to sync with the tires - as much as 5 - 10 minutes - but once it does it works well. Setup is a 1998 25 ft Safari hitched to a 2010 GMC 1500 crew cab.

Only drawback to the Dill system is the display. You simply cannot read it during the day if it's mounted on your windshield. Display is too dim and washes out in sunlight.
