Tyre Pressure monitoring System (TPMS)

Post by Heanorboy on Mon Feb 04, 2019 10:43 am

I see that a lot a vans now have these as standard but I don't and although I usually check each time out this would not help if I got say a rear slow whilst on the motorway
Found these (and a lot like it)


https://www.amazon.co.uk/ZEEPIN-Universal-Wireless-Monitoring-0bar-6-0bar/dp/B07HC4KQ9Z/ref=sr_1_13?s=automotive&ie=UTF8&qid=1549275444&sr=1-13&keywords=tyre+pressure+monitor

Will not effect CANBUS as it is solar
Has anybody fitted one and what have they found
Thanks folks
David
If I have missed this in the search be gentle with me

Having read that most blowouts happen due to low pressure overflexing the walls of the tyre leading to temperature increases, my thoughts were that, despite being fairly good at checking the pressures regularly before trips and during longer trips, it would be hard to pick up on a slow puncture on a long trip on a French motorway. 

I bought these from Tyrepal, not the cheapest and undoubtedly also made in China, but their reviews and support seem to be good. More importantly they do big discounts from time to time.

Many of the eBay versions do not cover the psi we might need as they are designed for cars. This is especially true if you put camper tyres on the rear with the recommended 80 psi. So watch that if you are buying off eBay/amazon. 

My van is a 7 metre with what I regard as a standard wheelbase. There are no problems with the signal range. 

The pressures are fascinating to watch. Mine are showing 53 psi front and 73 rear in the cold weather. Once I start driving the pressures rise to 60 and 80. In the warmer weather in France the 60/80 rise by about 10 psi to 70/90 which is a bit disconcerting at first. On my consol which sits on the dashboard, the pressures are reasonably easy to read, but the tyre temperatures are very small and almost impossible to read on the move, although the psi is what I am interested in. 

Worth it in my view.

The many on eBay all look the same, as you say all made in China .but confusingly some say suitable to 3.5 bar , others I have found say up to 5.5 bar. What determines the difference?
