Tire Pressure Monitors

Researching for a set of 4 tire monitors. There's a large spread on prices, from the low $30's, to the $300's. Want to make sure I get a good reliable brand, but not sure if in this case if cheaper is just as good as the more expensive ones. As the saying goes, got alot riding on those tires.

I had a TST on my SOB TT and loved it, it isn't cheap, but it worked flawlessly. A blowout on a RV at highway speeds seldom ends well, some far worse (disastrous) than others (minor damage or inconvenience), from what I know their monitors are top notch. YMMV.

My TireMinder has served me very well and has alerted me to 2 dramatic tire failures and I credit the TM with alerting me quick enough to prevent any collateral damage. IMHO it’s been well worth its price.
TM and TST are both popular and I expect neither would disappoint.

I have the TST system. It works great and I would buy it again if needed.

TST here. I just got a newer truck with a built in Ford system on the truck. I am considering using the TST sensors on the truck in lieu of the built in ones.

I've thought about getting a monitoring system but my concern is mounting them on rubber stems and how the extra weight will stress the stem during acceleration and braking. Anyone have any comments in this concern?

We have the TST system and are very happy with it. I didn’t install the pressure caps until I changed over to metal valve stems.

The stems on both my North Point & Pinnacle are half metal and half rubber.........I've used my TPMS on them for over two years and no problems.

Another happy TST user here. Only beef is that the color monitor screen can be hard to read in some light, esp. ironically the red characters which are the important warning messages. But remember that you do not need to mount it on your dash, but rather keep it in a convenient console cubby where the warning horn can be heard and then whoever is riding shotgun can fish it out and read it at an angle away from light.
You don't need to run a wire to it either; the battery charge lasts over a month and they ask that you do NOT leave it plugged in.

Have been using my TireMinder on 1/2 metal and 1/2 rubber stems for almost 5 years now. No issues!
