It seems to work

My new Silverado has the sensors and they automatically run OnStar diagnostics on the truck once a month and emails me the results. They ran the first diagnostic 24 hours after I picked it up at the dealer and it discovered that all 4 tires were low.

The sensors agree quite well with my$20 brass tire gage.

New valves and rebalance

Quote:
Did you have to rebalance your tires when you put them on, and did you change out the facatory valve stems?
TBRich, I did rebalance as a part of regular maintenance, but I didn't change out the valves. The vendor didn't think that was necessary, as I recall.

We're getting new axels, disk brakes and centramatics in January, so we'll upgrade to new valves then.

Tin_D et al...we did get PressurePros for our Bambi...our truck has its own factory systems, so we only have 2 PP sensors for the trailer. We did not have to re-balance (only necessary on small tires, apparently) and we did not switch out the rubber valve stems for metal (but will when we replace tires, as they are preferred, but not necessary). We just made a long weekend trip (120mi @ 65 mph max)...and we are very pleased...great to be able to hit a button and get a traveling pressure reading for a specific tire. This does not mean we no longer need to check our tires and keep and eye on them, but I can say that I feel safer and more secure on the road using the system...well worth the cost considering what potential damage to the AS could cost if we shredded a tire because we didn't realize we were having a pressure issue. We are happy campers.

Same here. A good investment.
