TPMS problems

I own a 2009 dodge charger with tire pressure monitor valve stems and by putting chrome valve caps on them it caused the 2 back ones to adhere to the the stems causing them to break. I was never told when i bought the car brand new i couldn't change valve caps by the dealer, in dodges manual, or in their warranty, only after the fact was i told by a dodge dealer that i wasn't suppose to dress up my car with chrome valve caps cause they cause problems with the valves rotting to the caps. Dodge wont fix it claiming its an aftermarket part, theirs nothing wrong with the aftermarket part only with their part, the front are fine with no adhesion what so ever. Dodge knows about this problem just check the internet with dodge customers complaining the same way. If i was told this or read it in their manual i would never put something in my car that would cost me 300 dollars in damages. All the new chargers have rubber valve stems nor TPMS stems cause dodge knew there was a problem. The have concealed this problem from their customers and now refuse to warranty it, their section in their owners manual about the TPMS valves states nothing about what valve caps to use or any warning about problems with chrome aluminum caps. They are ripping off consumers who put their trust in them. Now i have to drive my car with a flashing dash light due to this problem and its quite dangerous not to inform the public about this problem when one can adhere and blow while your driving. The dealer knows about this problem but doesn't tell you till the problem occurs their negligence and should repair this issue. Theirs no way id cause this problem if i was told when i bought the car.
