TPMS Recommendation

I'm planning to upgrade my junk Marathons to the new Endurance tires and greatly looking forward to driving over 65 mph this year. That means now is the perfect time to do TPMS sensors... does anyone have a recommendation for a legit, problem free product? I'd prefer not to use the cap style in favor of something that installs internally. I also don't want to have to use my cell phone or an app. Thanks!

I've had three different kinds, but the TST ones seem the best I've had. Remember to convert to metal valve stems.

I use the iPad app and the search function is basically useless. Too many results for "TPMS", few of which answer the question.

I'm sorry as I have no knowledge of an internal system. But can tell you that I have had excellent luck with the EezTire TPMS and it works great. No problems. I would highly recommend it.

I have a Dill 1506-453 I purchased at Discount Tire along with my 16" wheels and Michelin tires. It paid for itself when it detected a puncture from road debris and allowed me to slow down, exit I-75, and replace the tire before anything was damaged. Since it is internal, the temperature sensing is more accurate, there is no stress on the valve stems, the sensors can't get loose and leak, and there is no risk of the sensors being stolen.

The disadvantage to it is the batteries are not replaceable. When they die I have to buy new sensors. 4 sensors cost almost as much as a new TST system, but I will probably continue with the Dill just because I have come to trust it.

I have a Doran. Was briefly favored by many about 6 years ago, then...poof... not sure why, it has work flawlessly and paid for itself several times over with leak/ puncture warnings. I hate that the batteries aren't serviceable and sensors are $50. I'm on my second set since 2011.

Except that it is a cap system type that you said you didn't want? I know there are others by the same company on Amazon that are internal, seen people link to them before somewhere here. Good luck friend! I'd spend a few minutes on a laptop and try to search by the brand name maybe... I'm a horrible search executor so I know your pain but I have seen it on the forums...

I was quoted around $70 for the sensors from Dill. They are now available for substantially less elsewhere.

Iím with Al on this one Dill for internal sensor system.

You get internal temp also and I donít need a repeater either. I did run the external antenna down my truck frame and attached at back on truck hitch frame.

Some TPMS systems attach to the windshield and others to the dashboard. Some systems have attachments for both. Mine is on the windshield. The TST 507 looks like it works on the dash, but I can’t be sure from the photo on Amazon. Be aware Amazon photos can be of another model than the one sold. Never trust a photo on Amazon. Best to read more or check with TST. To tell you my model number, I’d have to find the box and can’t right now. The suction cup system for the windshield works well, but eventually they fall off as any moisture sealing the suction dries out, especially here in the desert. A dashboard system needs a smooth dashboard to adhere. Mine isn’t.

What happened with Doran was that they were accused by another manufacturer of copying their system and it ended up in court. I thought the Doran system looked very much like the other one. I don’t know the outcome of the litigation. I did have a Doran, but found it better to get another system rather than replace the sensors when they died.
