After suffering a major tire blow out, with extensive damage to my rig I became a big fan of TPMS. Heading to my source – mainly Amazon.com – for some insights on the product I made a quick decision to purchase this particular one. I just put new tires all around and wanted to be sure that I was monitoring the tires with better tech than a manual pressure gauge.
This system did not let me down. The installation was a breeze, setting up the monitor was made easy by the very clear directions and off I went. The system paid for itself the first day of use. Seems my tire dealer installed the wrong valve stems in my new tires. They did not fit properly. A day out from a planned trip I fired up the monitor to see what my tire pressure looked like. The Alarm was singing immediately, I had a new tire going flat. I pressurized it only to find that after a few hours it was not holding air. Off to the tire dealership I head and find out that valve stems did not seat properly. Off came all 5 tires and new steel high-pressure stems were installed. Had I not discovered this prior to my trip I would of likely just manually checked the pressure, filled the tire with air and off I would have gone. A few hours later I could have had the possibility of all my tires go flat heading down a 6% grade outside of MT Eagle, TN ……not good. I could not be happier with my purchase and the support from the vendor.
I was worried that this system would be hard to set up, but thanks to some online videos, it was a piece of cake! I love this system and the color display is very easy to see. We just put about 3000 miles on our last trip and this system gave me confidence in the tire status and made the trip stress-free.
I’m so glad that we chose this system instead of some of the others I have looked at. Also glad we bought the color display model vs the black and white mode. It’s worth the extra money! 😉
