I've purchased the TST system after much research and will be installing it today. They suggest valve extenders for the alum. wheels. I have the same situation . Maybe NVISION does as well. Suggest you call them.

Hawkshead TPMS

I think I want to go with the Hawkshead. I like the replaceable sensor batteries. I do have some questions if anyone is using this unit. Someone talked about taking the main unit with them when they did their morning walk around, why? It doesn't look like you can set the temp to alarm where you want it to, I think it is preset at 167 F, is this correct? I don't see how the temp can be accurate with the sensor mounted on a valve stem extension and then different length extensions from wheel to wheel. Am I correct that if I get an alarm that the tire location icon will blink? This is better than having to search or scroll looking for the problem tire, especially while driving! How does it show duals? How often does the sending unit transmit to the monitor, I read one that was every five minutes. That is not often enough, I would like almost real time, a hell of a lot can happen in five minutes. Can this unit be set up to scroll thru all tires automatically?

In order:
1. I take the "main unit" just in case something looks funny - can check it on the spot.
2. Temp is preset at 167 F. for first alarm and 185 F. for second. Well below FIRE and above the "normal" operating range which changes with the season, speed and even the road surface.
3. Temp accuracy probably isn't exact but for that to happen, the sensor is placed INSIDE the tire. Some systems go that route. Wanna change those batteries???
4. An alarm will make that tire location blink and give an indication of why it's blinking.
5. Duals? You program the system at installation to show your set-up.
6. Sending units transmit continuously - alarm is instantaneous.
7. Scroll? Why in light of 6. above?
