Tire Valve stems tearing

For the third time the tire stem has ripped causing my tire to completely deflate. The first couple times I was either on the highway, or just gotten off the highway. Both of those times the tires were ruined. This time I had only driven a couple blocks before I realized something was amiss and stopped so I'm hoping the tire could be saved. The rubber valve stems just rip right at where it goes through the wheel. No, I don't grind my wheels against curbs or anything that would damage them, so I'm kind of clueless. Could it be that they were just cheapo valve stems that were installed?

there was a big recall on valve stems last year due to them being made wrong.

there no way to know if the stems are still out there at this time.
