TPMS Sender Size

Am looking for a TPSM with the smallest sender size. The opening in my wheels is really small. I tried Tire Minder, but the sensors were WAY too big. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

We're using Tire Minder. If a smaller sensor exists, I've not seen it. It will be interesting to see other responses.

Just curious. Why do you think they are too big?

Your best bet would be a short metal extension. The batteries and transducer are pretty standard, so there ix basically a minimum size for these.
Flowthru sensors are bigger.

Regards,

Dan

Are you aware most all sensors have an outer cover which can be removed? The only purpose of the cover is theft protection as the outer cover "spins" without supplied special tool used to remove it.

I removed all the covers on mine as the wheel liner holes caused an interference fit with covers on. Additionally the larger size [ with cover] stuck out too far on toad wheels and possibility of being ripped off by curbs. Yes, valve stem extensions are most likely needed.

Hope this helps.

John

The Tire Minder covers are removable, but only to replace the battery. Removing the cover exposes the electronics.

Check out the senders with the TST system @ tsttruck.com While many RV owners use them they are primarily a commercial truck system. The outer cover is exactly as I've described. Spend a little more? Get a little more? The inner unit/battery is o-ring sealed and battery replaceable when needed. Call them 770-889-9102

Just my.02 Many systems out there.

I just measured mine for another post. The TST senders can be used with or without the locking covering. With the locking cover they are just a hair under 1 1/8" in diameter. Without the caver, they a are just a hair under 1". I bought the non-flow thru models which are shorter in length.

Why not just have extensions put on your current stems. Or replace the valve stems altogether with longer new ones? Sounds a lot cheaper then replacing sensors.
