imho, getting this tpms thing is no diff from getting those voltage,vacuum and pressure gauges you always see on boy racer cars. you dont need electronics to tell you about a flat/punctured tire. i feel people who install this just wants to have more things to look at while driving, which in turns causes distractions and danger. and seriously, even if you do install this system will you always be looking at it whenever you're driving to see if its out of range? nope. save the 200+ and get better tires or even run flats. no need worry so much and distract yourself.
I beg to differ...
TPMS is important beause an over/ under inflated tyre will affect your braking, stability and handling of your car. If you think its distracting to know the condition of the most critical part of your car, then I would suggest you to remove your odometer... since the speed, RPM, temp etc is even more distracting...
TPMS doesnt prevent puncture by nails/screws also what LOL
better tyres dont prevent a puncture but run flats will save you if there's a puncture. all the TPMS will do is annoy the living daylights out of you by constantly beeping to tell you its flat/leaking.
anyways, if you really do have a puncture or flat tyre, you'll definitely be able to feel it. regardless if its in the front or the rear. its a good habit to pump your tyres very fortnightly too. saves your petrol. i do it every week since the petrol station is really near my house.
