Crossfire and TPMS

I am purchasing a Tire Pressure Monitoring System in the next day or two. Read most of the forums and still not sure which one. I am thinking of also buying a Crossfire Equalization System and a TPMS. Should I buy both or just utilize the TPMS? In the end it costs about the same. Will I be risking a tire or two with the equalization system, as I would think that I would have two tires that need air and will not know specifically which tire I may be having a problem with?

If I had cross fires I would put a sensor on it. I read good comments about cross fires, but don't see the need myself.

I had crossfires on my Class C. They were okay, loved the single air value especially when it was time to put air in, i hated trying to air up the inner tire. The only thing was my cold inflation rating was 80 psi so drive them for any length of time and they would show red in the window of course. Not necessarily a bad thing, but a quick glance in the morning and off we went.

It is your choice of course. I have both and like having only one fill point and sensor on each dual. With the sensor I don't really care about the reading of the Crossfire because the sensor is reading the pressure. The Crossfires will show red any time when driving because the tire pressure always increases when the tires are turning, moving and flexing.
