I also have the TST 507 system and couldn't be happier. Works great and has saved me on several occasions. Information on your tires is not much help unless its real time.

Internal sensors

Does anyone make a TPMS with internal sensors like new vehicles have. I'm concerned that the external sensor won't give a true temperature reading. After reading all these posts it looks like my first upgrade for next year will be a TPMS.

On the trip home from Alaska this year, while in Colarado, I noticed a 2 pound drop in one TT tire one morning and thought hmm I will watch this. The tire held pressure right there all day. Next morning another 2 pound loss. Well this requires a better examination, I looked the tire over and found nothing so I added air. The third morning I had a 3 pound drop, so we stopped in Woodward, Oklahoma to have a tire shop inspect the tire and wheel. In the water tank, the shop found that the nut on the metal valve stem had backed off just enough to let a minute amount of air escape. That Alaska highway will test ALL of your equipment! Without my TPMS I would not have noticed the air loss as soon as I did. I am sold on the TST 507 and highly recommend it.

The Schrader system I bought for my toad and dolly uses internal sensors.

The main reason I went with this unit is it allowed significant differences in pressure for each axle (front and rear).

I have the dolly tires (front axle) set to alarm at about 75 psi, and the toads rear wheels (rear axle) set at about 30 psi.

The temperature alarm points can also be set for each axle.

I too can set different alarms based on different pressure and temperature ranges with the EEZRV system. Each sensor is individually programmable. I believe the same is true with the TST products.

TPMS saved my butt as well, highly recommend one!

Just like the old days before TPMS or even laser temp sensors... when you just put your hand on the tire sidewall and the hub on all 4 wheels, and felt for a difference in temp between the 2 or 4 wheels...

a temp sensor may not give a perfectly accurate temp reading if mounted externally, but between 2 or 4 (or more) sensors, there will be a difference in one of the temps relative to the others, if that wheel and tire has a problem...

I like my TST507

Speaking of tire temperature, I have a TST 507 system with 4 non flow thru sensors. The last time I towed my TH, I had one tire and wheel show as much as 10 degrees higher that the other 3. So, my question to all is when should I be concerned? I that still normal to see a difference like this?

10 degrees, I wouldn't loose sleep over. But it would be interesting to check and see if you could explain it.

A couple things that could cause the difference:

Faulty sensor
Different make/model tire
Inflation pressure
location of engine exhaust in relation to tire.

It really isn't inside tire temps you are reading but the exterior valve stem temp.
You can have tires with different temps just because of the sun reflection, engine exhaust pipe location etc.
My TPMS goes into a high temp alarm at 129 degrees.
If you are running at 90 degrees and one shows 100 degrees that doesn't mean it going to blow just that it needs to be watched.

I still watch my PSI first then tire temps.
