Yes, TireMinder standard transmitters may be used on higher quality rubber valve stems. However, we highly recommend brass or stainless steel valve stems due to the fact that rubber valve stems deteriorate rather quickly. They should be replaced when replacing your tires, and an external TPMS transmitter can exacerbate the deteriorating by adding weight, though not by much, to the valve stem.
Additional rubber valve stems issues are based on age, length and physical location, such as exposure to road salt, high heat, sun, etc.
If you are using rubber valve stems, it is recommended that you check the condition of you rubber valve stems on a regular basis. Failing to do so will result in a tire failure.
For an example of why rubber valve stems can cause tire issues, please see the following example:
