I have the TST sensors on my motor home and think they are OK. I had them about 6 months when one quit working. The TST people were helpful and replaced 1 sensor with a card containing 2. I had a second sensor stop transmitting a few months later. I didn't have time to replace it (on the inner wheel) before a trip and lost a tire. I don't know if a working sensor would have saved it. Did about $4000 damage to the motor home. On the positive side, the sensor started working after the blow out, still works. I don't think the temperature sensors are particularly usefull. The ones on the sunny side read a lot higher than the ones in the shade. Since they are external to the tire I don't think they truly represent the tire temperature. I purchased an IR pointing sensor and will check it sometime. Forgot to take the sensor on my last trip.

An aside to this. I thought they were reading about 5 psi higher than was actual. Until I tested my favorite gauge type pressure gauge against another pressure gauge. The TST sensors were correct and my $15 gauge was off.

I have had the Pressure Pro system for 5 years. Most of the sensors are still working on the original batteries. But I am vigilant on taking the sensors off when parked for long periods of time ( a week or more ).

The monitor is now on its last leg as I lost the front tire position. I cannot program it back in for love or money and it wont recognize any sensor. I will need to be buying a new system with all new sensors soon as this system has outlived itself.

I am leaning very hard towards the TST.

I will say that it saved me a ton of cash as I had a rock come up between my rear duals and busted the extension hose off. I lost tire pressure in very short order. The alarm gave me time to get off the highway quickly.

I wont run without a tire monitoring system ever.

Just installed my Hawkshead system yesterday and I am pretty impressed. I wont be going on any trips for another few weeks but it looks like it is going to give me some piece of mind while cruising down the highway.
