The rating of the tire does not determine the pressure the tires are run at. That is a function of the weight on the tire. I run 45 lbs in E rated tires on the trailer and 50 lbs on E rated tires on the truck.

I chose the Dill system. Sensors are internal and monitor PSI and Temp. Alerts for either, system cycles between wheels showing PSI, Temp check is a button push.

TPMS adds a very reassuring feeling for the tires that you can't see, even with dilligent pre trip inspections.

I'd recommend metal valve stems no matter what kind of time you have. Shortly after getting the PressurePros we had a rubber stem fail (luckily the PPro sounded an alarm and got us off the road before bad things happened)... I am convinced the failure was because of the extra stress on the stem... We now have metal stems.

The metal stems need to be the real deal. Held in by a nut in the back and not the truck stems used by some that are retained by the rubber pull through. It makes no difference if the tire is turning or stationary as a spare, vibration will fatigue a stem with a monitor hanging on it.

Ouch! That position has been much debated on these forums. I'm not sure which camp I'm in anymore. Let's not go there. But metal is better for all the above reasons....don't cost that much anyway.
