Yes TST Truck System Technologies, The one you mentioned in your link is a Knock off TST, they claim to be the same but in fact are very different. Please message me if you have questions regarding the TST TPMS

I just noticed that PPL Motorhome parts has the TST TPS Flow Thru or Regular sensors (6) for $299. Product # 92-0407. These are on sale until Friday (12th). Sounds like a good price. A couple of weeks ago I called TST and talked to Mike. He certainly seems to know what they are doing and impressed me with his knowledge and confidence in his product. When I buy, I will definitely buy the TST brand. I might even buy these from PPL.

Blowouts are usually caused by low pressure to start with or a loss of pressure while driving (due to a nail, etc). It's not common for a properly inflated tire to simply blow up.

With a TPMS, you are far less likely to have a blowout since you will not be operating with low pressure.
True blowout is when there is no warning like a loss of pressure.

Right with you Mr. D
True Blowout is the complete disintegration of a otherwise good tire due to temperature, usually caused by a slow leak. Sometimes caused by Foreign Object Damage (FOD- or road junk) There will be some warning if you have the right equipment!
Or Catastrophic failure of the carcass! There will be no warning! Causes could be numerous from material, manufacturing to FOD to accident or abuse!
No matter what your equipment or expertise level is! I hope luck is on your side!

That's why when you hit a curb or a rock or your not sure what it was with an inside or outside tire, DON'T take a chance but CHECK IT OUT before you get back on the road again!!! Even if you have a TPMS it could save your lives !

Regards,
Ed

Your first paragraph is supporting what I'm saying. THAT type of "blowout" will be largely prevented with a properly monitored TPMS. Loss of pressure (slow or fast) and elevated temperature are the major cause of "blowouts".

I highly doubt that any measurable % of perfectly good tires, regularly inspected by the driver before each departure, properly inflated and monitored for pressure and temperature with a TPMS have "Catastrophic failure of the carcass" out of the blue.

RE Blowout

Here is a post on how an impact can result in a "Blowout" with no pressure loss warning.

This post shows what most people see and call a "blowout" .

If you want to know the facts on tire failures you can read about them on my blog. I have over 20 posts with "blowout" as a label.

RE TPMS I prefer a 3 year warranty, $289 for 6 tires and owner replaceable batteries.

I just ordered the TST 6 sensor system from TSTtruck.com. They are an IRV2 sponsor and gave me a great price. They seem like a very responsible company with around the clock tech help.
A friend of mine thinks that this is a waste of money, but I know the sensors will give me a greater peace of mind and may possibly save me a big problem in the future.
Thanks so much for all of you who wrote about your experiences and past horror stories and for educating us all.
And a special thanks to Papa Jim and Kate. That story should convince anybody.

A very wise choice, not only to get a tpms but to get it from TST, you will not find a more conscientious manufacture than Mike and his crew at TST , been a customer of theirs for 6 years now, have had two systems they have bent over backwards every time I have had a concern, they truly have our best interest at heart and will do what ever it take to ensure safety and customer satisfaction. Just a few days ago I had a concern and question about my sensors, my email was answered right away and Mike stunned me with his solution to my sensors sticking out to far on my new car hauler wheels, I cant say enough about TST and their crew of great people.

You will be thrilled with the system and once you are used to it you can trust it, I have 12 wheels so I have a few spare sensors and batteries which I recommend cause things can happen and I wont go down the road without them on and working as I have had blow outs that may have been preventable if I had the system on.

Good Luck and Good choice

Moxy

Sorry for the slow response NewmarPusher.

I know the number is not big but you may be surprised that it is "quite" measurable! I don't have the number and don't want to guess on "what I remember to have read" but I was more then a "bit" surprised.
Now If I can only remember where I left my memory

Regards,

Ed
