Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems

Post by Blinky »

Anyone got these on the 4WD?
What brand, pro's & cons?

I'm checking out the Sensatyre system.

Interested to hear others experiences with them.

I know a couple of people who have the pop up type ones and they have failed.
They do work ok in the hummer etc but are internal types with inbuilt compressor.
Cheaper to invest in a gauge and infra red thermometer.

Tyre Dog is the brand and I think they work through blue tooth to a monitor, can get them in 4 or 6 packs if towing a boat or camper.

Did a bit of research on TyreDogs, they don't seem to stack up against the Sensatyre........

Nothin beats a good compressor and tyre guage. :wink:

I pray that one day God sends me a fish so big that, when talking of it...I have no reason to lie.
