Smile Tire Pressure System

My Tire Sentry System has worn out and the company is no longer in business. I now have to replace it with a new system.

I am looking for a 10 sensor unit that has a smaller monitor so I can mount it on the dash cluster ; the sensor batteries can be replaced as well as an easy install.

I have read several manufactures website and I am seeking reviews of owners of different system as to their experience with their system as to pros and cons.

This topic comes up frequently on IRV2.

As an example - have a look here.

If you make a search on IRV2 for TPMS you will get a world of information.

I have had the TST 507 for almost a year on my 40' rig with no issues. I installed the repeater in the rear closet to assure signal from my trailer. No matter the brand, it is a good idea to have a TPMS.

I couldn't agree more. On 3 occasions my TPMS has saved me from driving down the road with a seriously deflated tire. I would never think of driving anywhere without a system like that.

BTW - I use Tire Tracker and have been very pleased with both the system in general and their support.

have 12 sensor tst 507, second system from the, customer service is the best, 507 flow through are a pain to add a lot of air through but the batteries are user replaceable, Mike and his crew are seriously committed to customer satisfaction from my experience.

X2. Customer service second to none. Had an issue after 2 years with couple sensors. I called, 2 days later had all 6 new no questions asked.

I'm using TIRE TRACKER (12 sensors) made first trip with it , it worked good. Sure makes it easy first thing in the morning instead of having to go around and check the air pressure in each tire, especially when it's raining not to mention the peace of mind at 65mph! Sensor batteries are easily changed instead of having to buy new sensors and are very small weighing only ounces, less wear and tear on the stem.

I purchased TST because of their presence here and the rapid response to questions I had about systems. Great customer service and nice people. The system has worked flawlessly for 6 months.

I have been very satisfied with my TST which I have used since 2007. Yes I have upgraded when I went from TT to MH.

Agree! I like the TireTraker system! It meets your stated requirements, plus uses cap type sensors to prevent air leaks!

The Magna has a SmarTire system and it's built in but I bought a TST 507 system for the Dutch Star and found it to work well once I got a repeater installed.

TST for the win. The 507 flow-through are what i have, but adding air is a major PITA. I would buy the regular caps next time.

I have a Blog post on "Best TPMS" that outlines things I think you need to consider.

Sorry I do not name a brand in this post.


BUT any functioning TPMS is better than none
