Dill Tire Pressure Monitoring System

Dill is in the market with a pressure monitoring system. Saw it on Tire Rack's web site.

Question: Has anyone purchased this system and could give me some feed back.

Tire Rack is quoting $239 for four tire system, Installs inside the tire/wheel, expected battery life is 7 years, 1 year warranty, transmits up to 60ft, replacement units are $28.

Eliminates the theft problem, larger unit for transmitter & battery, centrifugal force not as much of an issue(my steel wheel covers necessitate an extended valve stem), longer battery life - maybe?

Hard to believe the 7 year battery life part. Im seeing cars come into the dealership after 1-2 years with problems already.

Good thing about RV's is you should really change the tires in half that time so maybe it could be a good fit.

Im going to check this out.

Thanks for the post.

Vinnie

Thanks for the comment on battery life on new cars.

This comment will recycle this thread one more time and maybe someone else has had a chance to try Dill TPMS.

I just bought the Orange Electronic inside the wheel TPM system to go into my new 16 inch wheels; they included a set of longer brass tire valves, and a set of shorter aluminum colored valves.

So far so good!
I researched TPMSs online, and picked this one because of the great reviews.
