Tire pressure monitor systems

I just bought a Tire pressure monitor systems and have the 3010DS.
My question is should i install metal tire stem values to support the weight of the sensors? or will my rubber stems hold them? Thanks

I have had 3 different TPMS systems over the years. Not sure which one you have, but I would recommend having the metal valve stems for stability purposes. -Glenn

Metal for sure with the holders - you cannot let the sensors touch the rim - it damages them and also will screw up the connection

Your 3010DS should have metal valve stems already. Mine came with them from the factory. I had the TPMS system on for 2 years now . Works great.

If you do have rubber stems you should replace them with metal. The weight of the sensor can cause rubber valve stems to fail.

I just installed the TST510 on my 2009 Sunseeker.
Turns out the RV came with the braided steel lines on the rear inner tires, and all valves are metal stems.
I put 90 degree extensions on the outer wheel valve stems to get the sensors outside the rim.
On the front I had to remove the hubcaps and put on small extensions which put the TST cap just outside
the hubcap.
It was easy to put in the parameters for the six wheels. Then I was surprised to see the whole thing spring to life,
even without the included antenna!
Adjusted air pressures to suit my parameters and replaced front hubcaps.
The display seems to get a signal from each tire every 10 seconds or so, the whole cycle would then be a minute
for the six sensors.
Pretty impressive system so far!

I use TST flow thru on steel stems. No problems and I like them.

For those already using a TPMS system is it worth getting the flow thru sensors vs the sensors you have to take off to add/adjust tire pressures? Also, which brand are you using and why did you select it?. I need to add one to my travel trailer and want to be sure I get the most reliable and cost efficient system.
Thanks.

i used teh 507 from TST and rubber valve stems... big mistake on teh painted rims because the sensors are too heavy and wore the paint off in the strike area. on my SOB trailer we now have we installed teh high pressure metal stems on teh rims and no more problems...
