Yes, the pressure goes very quickly when they blow. Isn't it also possible they blow because you get a slow leak, as the air pressure goes out, the tire gets flatter AND HOTTER, eventually they separate or blow. IMHO, most of the time tires get a small leak and due to losing air pressure, they start running hotter and either blow or separate.
Either way, I have a Tire Minder TPMS and feel a lot better as I can see if there is a slow leak.

Under inflation is the easiest way to kill a tire!

How cool is this? I heard back from the manufacturer this morning. Even though I am not the original buyer but I do have all of the paperwork, they are sending me all necessary replacement parts for the TPMS. All I was hoping for was some advice or suggested place to purchase parts. Its not an expensive unit (Carchet TPMS) and gets slightly above average reviews but at least the manufacturer is helpful.

That is great when a manufacturer is helpful like that.

Are there any versions of TPMS which installed in the tire? I have that kind of sensors in my car and I thought that all TPMS go inside.

If the sensors are installed outside, is it DIY job to install or you need to have a professional to do this? I asked my dealer if they would install TPMS and they said no.

It's reading is going to be closer to outside air temperature than internal air temperature. I set mine plenty high to guarantee they never go off. That would be around 120 degrees.

TST makes a version of their 507 with internal sensors. We just got it for our camper and are so far are happy with it. Much better than the external on the valve stem sensors in my opinion.

TST 507s are also available as an external sensor which is what I have. It's a fairly easy install by the user. Unless you have the equipment to dismount and mount tires, the internal ones would have to be installed by a tire dealer.

Thanks, Guys. So is the difference between Non Flow Through and Flow Through systems? First one is external and second internal?

EDIT: I see that Don has TST 507 Flowthru and is saying that this is external. So Non Flow Through is internal?

The 510 is non-flow-thru. Here's a link to their TPMS.

Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems -*Truck System Technologies

Flow through simply means you don't have to take the sensor off to air up the tire. Non-flow-thru requires removal of the sensor from the valve stem to air up the tire.

The 510 and 507 have outside screw on the valve stem sensors. Yhe 507 has the option of flow sthr sensors that can be aired uo w/o removal or you can get inside sensors.

All the outside sensors are easy to install and program.

I have the 510 system and it is in use for over 4 years on the same batteries.
