Tire pressure monitoring

I have a 5er & F250 want to use a TPM but have had bad experience with putting things on valve stems ( extenders ) what is recommended about TPM systems

Aftermarket TPM sensors screw on the end of your metal valve stems. Finger tight is good. Don't use pliers as all you need to do is have the O-ring in the sensor seal against the end of the stem.

You will hear a puff of air when screwing on but this should stop when the sensor is tight. You can check for leaks with a spray of Windex or other water based spray cleaner. Even simple soap & water solution will work.

Unless you have duals I see no reason to need extenders.

You'll hear a lot about the TST 507 system. So far, I've had good luck with it, and so have many others here.

I think you and I have done business before, are you in Cal and do you manufacture the solid valve stem extenders ( the best on the market ). If so I spoke to you and I think your wife several years ago.
