Umm, maybe one of them is for a pressure sensor for the TPMS?

Arent they attached to the rim inside the tire? The TPS. With a metal clamp similar to a radiator gasket?

I have MHT forged wheels and all companies, well the higher end ones, are now making rims with two holes, one for the air inlet, and the other for the TPMS. I heard this directly from the rep at MHT and HRE. So all you have to do is just stick two inlets in there since fords are not equipped with the TPMS....yah we are not mercedes or BMW's and oh yah we dont cost 100K+!!!

Hope this helps.

Well we have the TPMS but I don't think it works the same way as a the the Benz system.

yah we do have TPMS it is located inside the tire, not on the outside. we basically do not have a seperate system like the higher end cars.

You should probably call Foose directly to get a good answer. I bet they look great anyway.

thanks for the info guys, I guess I'll just stick some extra valves in them and be on my way. I was a little concerned because I bought them off the internet dirt cheap. I might not get them on til spring because my car's about to be put away, I'll post pics then cuz they do look amazing

It's possible the extra holes are for an inner liner application.

Yes it's normal. You will simply have to install some small valve stems on the backside hole and also some very short ones on the inside of the wheel.

Try these

Flush Mount Valve Stems - Special Order - Gorilla

No need to call anyone. question has already been answered. It's to help protect the tpms sensor by putting it on the top of the rim when changing out the tires. Without doing that it would make it really hard to change the tires without breaking the sensors. All the foose rims are reverse mount. The second valve stem whole is there so you can easily check your air.
