best tire monitors

I bought a cheap TPS setup and it looses the connection with the tires. What is the best unit for the money out there?


thanks
Chris

TST and Tireminder are 2 that come to mind.
I have had complete satisfaction with TST as have others that work and are dependable.

I’ve owned 2 Tire Minders and feel having a TPMS is not optional, very pleased with my TM. TST is also popular.

I can't tell you if it's the best, but we've used an EEZTire TPMS for 6 years and have been happy with it. Keep the batteries in a warm spot for the winter and test them every spring before use.

I have also used the TST 507 for about 3 years. Worked when I had a blow-out and save me thousands of dollars in damage.

We have Tire Minder on our TT. It saved us from what certainly would have been major damage. Heading back from Lake Erie on I-75 an alarm on the monitor went off indicating a rapid air loss. I thought it was probably a malfunction because everything felt/towed fine and it showed the tire was only down a few PSI. Glad I checked. A couple more miles and the tire would have definitely shredded. It was on the kitchen slide side too, so the gas lines and wires all would have been torn out at the very least.

I’ll add to my previous post; my first TM alerted me to 2 dramatic tire failures in a 70 mile stretch! Both times I got to the shoulder and stopped before any collateral damage was done. Bought my first TM after reading too many horror stories of failures (tires from “guess where”). When my first TM died I bought another. Pricey? Yeah a bit, but I want my tires monitored by a dedicated device. Kinda like having a pacemaker driven by my cell phone, no thanks. My neighbor did not have a TPMS and was alerted to a tire failure by a passing motorist. Several thousand dollars later the damage was fixed.

We are going on 5 years with our Tire Minder system.

They also will provide free replacement batteries once/year if you register your TPMS with them... We replace 10 batteries every March and have had Excellent results with these.

Another vote for TST. The first one was flawless for eight years until it had to be replaced because the firmware was so outdated - the TST support team was fantastic at helping me figure that out.

The new one saved us twice last year.

I also have a EEZ Tire TPMS. I have six on my Super C motorhome and six on my three axle stacker trailer that I tow behind it. Flawless.

A fellow in our camping group had two blowouts on his fifth wheel with terrible damage to his wiring and plumbing systems. That's what prompted us to acquire a system. We've been using the TST system for a little over three years.

The tire pressure sensors in my pickup truck's tires became unreliable and were a pain to replace with what became unreliable results. We acquired a TST system with eight of the flow-through sensors to monitor trailer tires and tow vehicle tires.

The system has a relay unit that we mounted on the battery box on the trailer tongue. I can get good tire readings when I'm a block away from the trailer as long as the batteries in the sensors are good. The flow-through sensors make it easy to add or remove air without having to remove the sensors. They do require having metal valve stems on the tires.

I have used Tiretraker since 2011. They have lifetime warranty except for the batteries. I am currently running a comparison test with tst507 and both are working fine. Publish data rests on my blog . Rvtiresafety

Tire Minder is our choice

We have had 2 Tireminders so far. Gave another one as a gift - it monitors his truck, trailer, and air bags on the rear of his truck. He likes it very much.
If you decide on TireMinder, be sure to purchase enough transponders for all your locations - they are much less expensive when purchasing with the monitor.

TPms testing

Testing your TPMS. I bet almost none of you have tested your TPMS. This should be done at least once a year. Some nice afternoon when you have nice weather with your traveling companion in the driver seat. AND when you have access to air of high enough pressure to top-off your tires. Go to each tire and slowly unscrew the external sensor and have the person in the driver seat let you know that they can see and hear the warning for each tire position. You don't even have to completely remove the sensor. Just unscrew enough to hear air leaking out. As soon as the monitor in the cab sounds you can screw the sensor back in to stop the air leak. Once you know that every sensor works you then need to go around and add back in the 5 psi or so that leaked out.
Doing this will also confirm you have your low pressure warning level set properly as the warning should go off as soon as you lose about 5 psi. I cover how I suggest you set your warning levels in my RVTireSafety blog
