Tireman9 does the added weight of the hoses or TPMS sensors require tire balancing? Did you mount the TPMS sensors before the hoses (at the metal valve stem)?

No re-balance required with hoses or TPMS or both installed. As a professional in vehicle rife & handling evaluation I have a trained and educated butt and I do not feel any difference. The hoses on dual counter-balance much of their weight.

If you have full wheel covers you can still attach the hose end bracket to the center section of the wheel simulators.

I will be posting new picture soon.

Personally I see no advantage but do see some disadvantage to Crossfire system.
When you set the pressure in your dual tires you can set to +/1 a couple of pounds which is plenty accurate enough.
If one tire develops a leak it will continue to loose air till it goes flat. The Crossfire will only transfer a few psi before it shuts off. This means the tire that now has to carry most or all the load has had some of its air bleed off. Not a good thing.

IMO a MUCH better investment is in a TPMS which will warn you if you develop a leak so you have time to do something in most cases.
