I tried them on rubber only 1 1/4 but did not like the movement of the stem. Also some rubber stems will not allow you to screw them down far enough depending on the valve stem installed.
GreatRVProducts.com is $239. for the 4 sensor package w/2 yr warranty. Free shipping of course. And they add 1yr to the warranty if you buy in January.

An extra 1 year warranty is worth $10.00 bucks more. When I priced mine out the monitor replacement was 59.00, and the sensors are only sold in pairs for $100.00 a pair, that was from Mike at TPST. I guess it was about 2mos ago I got mine from Valcum tire, I haven't checked prices since. Good luck with your choice......

Another thing to confirm when shopping for TPMS is battery cost & replacement as well as sensor cost if there were problems after 3 years.
Since we are posting prices.
Traker 6 tire is $289 More info here.

The prices I posted were for TST 507 for 8 tires, Great RV Products was $400, the cheapest place is RV Parts Country at $364 with shipping and no tax, the next was rvupgrades at $389. I plan to buy the TST 507, I have looked at other TPMS but I like the TST, I have heard good things about service that TST has and I vote for service after the sale

If you get 10 you can monitor spares too... LOL

I still have not been able to find the weight of 510
sensors so they may not be heavier than the .8 oz that
the 507 FT's weigh. I only bring this up because of the folks
who want to put them on rubber stems. Otherwise, it's not important.

I also just bought 4 CR1632 batts at Wally Mart. They were $4 a
a copy 6% tax included. They hide them behind the Jewelery dept. counter so you
have to find someone to help you. That could be a task in and of itself.

I'm on the process of getting this set up but I'm just getting the 4 for the trailer. My pickup has a pressure display for its tires.
My question is , did you have to purchase the booster with your set up ?

The 510 sensor weight is 23 grams, the 507 sensors weight is 13 grams. a little less then 50% difference in weight. the 510 battery will last 5 to 7 years and the 507 will last 8 to 12 months. I think it would be a bad idea to use rubber stems with the 510 system.

Anyone ever look at the TireTraker system? If so, share your opinion with me as I'm looking for a good system that's not crazy expensive and relatively simple.

Are you sure it is valcum and not vulcum tire, I google valcum and could not get anything, vulcum tire was $399 for 8 sensors

Right now all I can afford is 8 sensors, you see 2012 3500 Silverado does not come with a built in TPMS, now the 2500 Silverado does, something about the 3500 could be a dually and I think GM said the internal TPMS did not work well with dually's. That's a good idea about putting them on the spare tires.
