I wish I had gotten the non-flow thru for my rig. I did get them for the TOAD.
The flow-thru are much bigger, and they use a set-screw as the anti theft device. I am not crazy about this because if anyone tried to steal them it would mess up your valve stem. I just remove the sensors for storage, and removing them saves the battery.
The non-flow thru requires a special wrench to install/remove them, otherwise they just spin. The user can replace the batteries on both styles.
And as I said in my previous post, it is one less potential for a leak.

Dan

I checked on another forum and no one had experienced a failed rubber valve stem that had a TPMS sensor attached. But lots of folks insisted that a steel stem was needed.

Question: Has anyone on iRV2 actually had a failure with a rubber valve stem that had a TPMS sensor attached?

Thanks!

Bob

Take a look at this thread:
Can TPMS damage valve stems?

There are a couple of posts from a TST person (employee??).

I think it answers your questions....no real problems from rubber stems.

Thanks for the link!

Of all the things I could worry about, failed valve stems is way, way down on my list...

Cheers!
