Very happy with TST 507 TPMS

Wanted to give a tip of the hat to the TST 507 system as well as Mike Benson with TST who assisted me with the simple install. This system is dead on. It installed nicely and will provide a clear picture of the status of my tires on the dually, 5er & the Idaho Tote trailer I pull behind the 5er to haul the Polaris RZR. Been using a Hopkins system for years with only moderate satisfaction. After I installed the 507 it was clear why everybody gives them a high satisfaction rating. Thanks again Mike

My TST 507 system is about 12 years old and still going great. Changing the batteries and o-rings are a little tedious but well worth the effort.

I love my TST 507/510. I've had it for 7 years and it is very accurate. I like being able to change my own batteries. Yes it can be a bit tedious but it saves sending the sensors back to the factory. It's a good rainy day project.

I'm considering getting a TPMS for my trailer. Are these actually helpful going down the road?

Some reviews say the temperature readings are not helpful due to being outside the tire and actually reading ambient air. Others say the psi accuracy is +/- 3 to 5. That seems like alot.

Thanks for any input!

They aren't dead on accurate, but they do give readings that allow you to make informed decisions as to whether tires are overheating or over or under inflated.

If you drive all day with the hot sun on one side of the coach you can expect the readings on that side to be a bit higher. At times on really hot days we have seen differences of 15* to 20*. All in all I believe they are accurate enough to depend on and well worth the investment.

I believe in TPMS. Very accurate for what it does. Mine told me when my brake magnets disintegrated by telling me I was running hot on one wheel. Then saved me with the low psi warning when the bolts on my steel valve stem loosened and deflated by 15%.

In both cases, the TPMS saved me from further damage / expense.

My 507 saved my bacon on the very first trip the I used it. BUT, it reads 4 to 5 lbs low on all 4 tires. Before you reply, I have several gauges which all agree including a certified gauge the is accurate within 1/4 lb (racing tire gauge).

I contacted TST and their reply was basically that that's the way it is, just "adjust" your thinking about pressure and everything will be OK.

Yeah thanks.

Hi Joshuajim, I am glad your TST saved you. and I apologize for the response you received "that's the way it is" I will definitely get that addressed. The sensors should be accurate to between 1-3PSI. I would be happy to take a look at your sensors, and test them here for you. If they are reading 4 PSI+/- I will replace them.

Feel free to contact me directly at 210-420-0132

Thank you,
