Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems

I have been looking at TPMS for my TT and can't make up my mind. I really like the Acutire system but it has bad reviews. I don't like the Pro Pressure system because you have to use metal stems, that means breaking down the tires. Any help would be appreciated, pros, cons, experiences.

I have a Pressure Pro system and have rubber stems on my toad and never had a problem in 60,000 plus miles. Whatever system you buy you will be glad you have one.

I too have rubber valve stems on my toad. Been three years without a problem so I figure the metal valve stems are not really necessary.

I never had a value stem problem until I got the last truck. The first two trips out the stems failed. My old truck never a problem. I still like my Pressure Pro.
