guys, wanna ask.

 

what do you think if i get a set of tpms, those valve type.

 

only use when going for long distance.

other than that, will just remove it and store in the box.

 

my concern is the battery life and replacement of such valve. thanks

Get those which you can DIY and do not need any 3rd party installer.

I'm using this btw.

Tire-Pressure-Monitoring-System-TPMS-by-

 

No need to splice any wire for power source. Sensor is outside the valve but with lock nut to secure it but looks big. It's silver in colour same as my rims so not very obvious. Sensor is very light weight plus I could change the battery on my own, only downside it's mounted externally and it looks big. The display is plug and play to any power socket plus it has a 1A usb port built in to charge your smartphone.

 

Anytime if I dun wish to use it I can just uninstall w/o the hassle of finding a tire shop. This is also cheaper dan most TPMS but no warranty though. Sensor can be sold separately but at what price I'm not sure.

 

Display can do bar, psi and temperature in degree Celsius.

For this price, cannot hiam. It serves its purpose well.

upz your point,

 

yeah, looks good and simple to me, especially you mentioned that you could change the battery yourself.

what kind of battery it actually uses? the same type with watches?

 

just to share my story,

i had an incident whereby i was travelling to NSHW, going around 150-170km..

until i feel my steering was kinda weird..

the whole car can't even go straight..

pull over to the road side and realized that the side wall of my rear tyre had came out.. a nice circular cut..

since then, i believe a good tire really helps..

 

my intention of having this tpms, is to pre alert me, should i ever had such encounter again..

least, i saw the drop in psi.. i cant slow down and identify the clause.

 

does this thing have any alarm?

if it does, its deserved a thumb up.

Yeah. If drop below 1.8 bar there's an alarm to alert you. Battery should be those CR type which you can get anywhere.

 

The reading will be accurate when the car starts moving at about 40km/h. It doesn't need to reset like some tpms when you change or rotate tires.

 

 

Forgot to mention it does have memory of your last reading after switching off ignition.

Secure i.e. won't fly off without the lock nut ?

Sensor screw thread is cw, lock nut is ccw. It's more for anti theft. If you dun put the lock nut also no problem.

 You need to test your car after the monitering system was installed.

I need this type of setup cos I pump air quite frequently.
