While traveling on highway valve stem fell into rim this, I believe was caused do the fact the steel rim has a lip that holds water if the valve stem is in the six O clock position it sits in water /the only way the water can be removed is by the rim turning, the rim is steel, the stem is aluminum the lock nut is aluminum all of these different metals mixed with water creates a corrosion (electrolasis) problem inside the rim the valve stem connects to the TPMS sensor on other model Jeep the valve stem is rubber it seems to eliminate the corrosion problem I called Jeep case#25386092 offered no results.
