Need recommendations on a good tire pressure monitoring system.(preferably Chrome).
Dave, how low does pressure have to get before the warning comes on?That is one thing I like about the external (valve cap) ones such as I have on my SSR. They can be moved from wheel to wheel and the battery (watch type) can be replaced without taking the tire down. Mine displays through the radio (Kenwood) and shows the pressure in each tire when you start and also has a button that you can push to display.
I have a Silverado and Prius V that have two sets of wheels/tires for each. When the wheels/tires are changed in the fall and spring I have to have the TPMS system reset. That is about $25 and the Prius is specific to the point that each sending unit has its own numerical code. If a battery goes down then the tire needs broke down and the unit is removed via the inside of the wheel.
Just my two cents.
Good point there Mo. The old brain don't click in as fast as it used to./forum/images/SSRFanatic_2016/smilies/tango_face_plain.png
My setup is able to vary the "warning" psi setpoint. I believe most systems (at least the external ones) would be cause they don't know what wheel/tire size you are installing on and what the recommended pressures might be.
PreSet, No Name Ebay Purchase. Had them several years replaced the batteries once.Is that preset or can you adjust it? What brand you have?
What Is One Bar of Pressure? | Reference.comWhat does 1.8 bar mean? No measurement I have heard of or ever saw on an air gauge?
Thanks but not much help there. Just tells you how to covert it to pounds which air gauges are in the first place.What Is One Bar of Pressure? | Reference.com
One bar is a measure of atmospheric pressure that is equal to the pressure felt at sea level on Earth. It has largely replaced the older unit of one atmosphere, which is equal to 1.013 bar.
