Puncture Proof Tires & Pressure Warning

Hello,

I own a small 17 ft. Viking travel trailer with 1 axle and am wondering if there is a tire that will not deflate if punctured and also a notification on my dashboard that gives me a warning of low pressure?

Thank you

Yes, you can get a Tire Pressure Monitoring System, (TPMS).

I don't know of any run flat type tires that would be appropriate for.trailers, though.

I don't think there are any "puncture proof tires" unless you went to a solid tire like goes on a forklift. There are better brands.
I generally stay with brands made here in the US. And they make Tire Pressure Monitor systems for Toad cars, those would also work on your trailer.
I have for years checked tires at every stop. The old truckers carried a short bat in their cab for checking tires. a fully inflated tire was hard, a tire even just a little low has a different feel. DR

For a TPMS, youíll want metal valve stems on your tires.
