Angry tire pressure monitoring system

Wow what a week! We just returned home from our shake down trip to prepare for our Alaska trip in three weeks. Everything went perfect until we started home. We had been traveling about twenty minutes when my tire pressure monitor ALARMED. I have brand new Cooper tires and had just checked them before we left the campground and everything was ok. I pulled off the road and checked anyhow and all was well. This is the third false alarm. The system is Tire Minder and it is time to replace it. Does anyone have experience with a different system?

TST is what I have and have had no issues. Great customer service.

Had a short experience with Tire Minder, but literally threw the display and sensors in the garbage somewhere in Montana. Only word I can use on this forum is Junk; all others would get me banned.

Switched to TST and never had a problem in two years. Changed the sensors' batteries this spring and they registered on the display in about a minute.

What was the alarm? Low pressure, high pressure, temperature?

Go with the TST 507 alarms are settable for low high and temp. I have had two TST monitors and never had an issue. Original one did not have user replaceable batteries in sensors. I upgraded with the last TT purchase and love them. You will need metal stems, but that is something you should do any way. Suggest you have dealer that mounts stems, balance as well with sensor attached. Many people say TT tires do not need to be balanced, but they rotate the same or higher speed as the Tv tires and no one dries with unbalanced TV tires.

Thanks for the info. I just put new tires on with metal stems. This is the third strike for Tire minder. It is just not a reliable system. We are leaving for Alaska on July 1, and I do not need any extra problems
