tire pressure monitors

Does anyone have a suggestion as to which tire pressure monitor system is best? We currently have the Pressure Pro by Duran. The sensors have to be returned when the batteries run down. We would prefer a type that allows you to replace the batteries as needed.

If anyone has suggestions or input that would be great!

Welcome to the forum. So are you thinking of replacing your pressure pro with a new system because the PP batteries need to be replaced at the factory?

I know that there are a lot of TST fans here on the forum. I have the Doran 360 and wouldn't recommend it because I've had to replace 9 of the 10 sensors in less than 3 years. Doran extended the warranty on their sensors to two years because of the problems but it stinks to have a system that goes down so often.

Good luck...

You will find plenty of opinions with just a little searching!!!

We ran the TST system for 8 months and had lots of problems. We've been running the TireTraker now for a year and have had zero problems. Batteries are replaceable, sensors are smaller and lighter, and you get both pressure and temp. I believe the same system is also sold under Hawkshead and Tire Minder names...

I've had the Doran Pressure Pro (older system, low pressure alert only) for five years. It's still working fine. I suppose the batteries could go at anytime. After next month we will be at home for awhile so I may take them off and have the batteries replaced as a preventive measure. Can't say as I have had any cause for complaint on my set.

I am using the TST 10 sensor system. I have not had any problems with the sensors. My system is not the newer TST system that allows the user to change the batteries.

I have the TST 507 system and the batteries are easily changed by the user. TST has great customer service - if you have an issue they quickly jump to resolve it. After using the system for one summer, I recommend the TST 507.

Just finished researching monitoring systems. Decided to go with Tire Minder. Replaceable batteries and free batteries was just one of the many reasons. There in Stuart, FL 772-463-6522 Call them, excellent customer service. BTW, no $$ interest here.

I've been using the Pressure Pro system for two years. Batteries are still good. I think the warranty on them is 5 years.

Just checked:

To replace existing Sensors that are over 4 years old for new Sensors with new batteries.

I have the tst 507 system, and it works great

I had trouble programming one sensor, they replaced it no problem. It turned out to be operator error, the sensor was fine.

The sensors don't start transmitting until they see air pressure... so the batteries don't go dead on the shelf. This makes doing the second tire in a pair of duals a lil tricky.

Once I figured this out, I put them on my ttoad to program the positions, then moved them to the motorhome.

And do not crank on em. 1/2 turn after they stop hissing, no more. I cannot imagine these things getting stuck on a valvestem, and if u overtighten them, you'll destroy the gasket and they will leak
