Rick,
No problem with the long story. It's refreshing to hear a good story about a flat tire.

Ken

Thanks Ken. If I only had metal valve stems on my 16" Michelins, I would install TPMS on the AS.

I discussed that metal stem thing with both Hawkshead and Discount Tire. The Discount Tire manager pointed out that regular stems (at least the ones they use) are metal with a rubber shell. The owner of Hawkshead said the only reason he carries metal stems is that he got tired of trying to convince buyers that they don't need them.

I have used my Hawkshead HD 4 for over five years with 15 inch ST tires and 16 inch LT tires on the trailer and 17 inch LT tires on the truck with very reliable pressure and temperature readings with only the stems that Discount Tire regularly uses on truck tires.

I monitor 10 tires including both spares.

Ken

When I went to Discount Tire and had metal valve stems installed, the dealer asked me to promise him I wouldn't inflate the tires beyond the recommended PSI because in his experience metal valve stems are usually installed for high pressure applications. So, I promised.

""I have been using "Tire Minder" The sensors screw right onto the valve stem and give you pressure and temp.""

Ditto Purman's post # 7 above. I run the Tire Minders on my 4 Maxxis 8008 STs. The 10 ply Maxxis are so overbuilt for the weight they carry on my 30, but I want to keep track of the temp and pressure anyway. I think everyone can agree that under inflation and high temps will kill any tire that's being asked to carry a load. Full time monitor of your tires can only be a plus.

T Minder Cust service is great with any problem or replacement part.

Tire pressure monitor recommendation?

I've been using the Tireminder as well, and have been very happy with it. The one I'm using will read up to 22 sensors and I don't require the booster between my TV and 28'.

Tiremimder and Tire Traker seem to be the same product looking at my Tire Traker system. Tire Traker offers good service too. I just ordered new O rings and batteries from them and the order was shipped promptly and arrived in a few days.
