TPMS issue

I just snapped the second valve stem in less then a month. The last one was $130 installed by the dealer. Both cracked at the threads due to the corrosion issue.
Will standard rubber valve stems with no sensor fit in the stock rims?
I don't really care about the TPMS so if I can avoid spending $400 to replace the remaining three that would be wonderful.

Did you replace the OEM plastic valve stem caps with metal ones ? If so that could be your problem.

I live 2 blocks from the ocean and have not had a problem in the 4 years I have owned mine.
