Anyone have comments about Tire Minder or Tire Tracker systems? Also, wondering if I could put transmitters on the air bag valve stems to monitor pressure?

I can't answer your first question but you can do a search for those terms and see what people have said.

I'm shopping for a TST system with a plan of putting sensors on my airbags.

I had one and it kept loosing signal and that was with the sensors installed on the TV. Personally I think the 507 is a better product.

I don't see why you couldn't put sensors on the air bag stems and them not work.

Had tire minder system for a few trips, finally threw them into the garbage. As stated previously, they lose signals and got tired of trying to pair them at every stop. Basically worthless product in my opinion. Went to TST and they have been ok.

I will add that the last trip of the year, two sensors stopped signalling. It was within a few hundred miles from home, so I didn't stop and play with them, and basically forgot about it until now. I'm assuming the batteries went dead. I did change all batteries in the spring, but....
