Good luck. I have had three different brands over the years. The tire stem units were identical (even the control units worked the same way). Two had solder joints break. FWIW, $25 is cheap. The first I had break cost me $45.
You can choose a model with sensors that mount inside the tire, like your car/truck. Just costs a bit more. (and warn the tire center when you need new tires so they don't break the sensors).
