TPMS in Alcoa wheels

Alright M2 users, whoís got TPMS installed and what did you do to get the sensors to fit? Any pics appreciated and would love to know what brand.

Every time I look at them I get all ready to roll then as soon as I realize Iíll likley need to mess around with extenders and such I end up losing steam and deciding not to mess with / over complicate a system thatís working. I think itís time I bite the bullet and stop tempting fate as Iím religious about checking pressure before leaving on a trip but definitely not great about doing it in progress or upon departure.

Looking at TST or Eeztire but open to suggestions. Really whichever involves the least amount of new failure points intoduced will be best.

I put the Crossfire stuff on the rear duals. Makes it easy at a glance to know if your pressure is correct or dropped. Plus, the right crossfire unit has the extra valve spots so you can still put separate TPMS sensors on each wheel. And, there is a 3rd valve stem that is easy to reach and allows you to air up both tires simultaneously w/o removing the sensors. The cross fire takes about 20 minutes to install on each side and you don't need to bother with leaky stem extensions, etc.

The fronts obviously are an easy screw-on. You can get the air though sensors so you dont need to remove them to add air.

I use the TST brand because they include a nice color monitor.

I was considering that avenue as well. Thanks Randy

Using the ones from rvibrake since I already had their tablet.

I had trouble with the sensors on the rear inner tires which I believe were caused by the valve stem extensions. I ended up removing them altogether. It's a bit of a pain to install/tighten the inner sensors now, but they work great.

So you’ve got the sensors directly on both of the rear valve stems? Understand the PITA it will cause filling but that’s still encouraging.

Yes...sensors directly on all rear valve stems. Both extensions have been removed. Both caused issues with the sensors, and the one on the passenger side was leaking (I previously had to tighten both of them).

Heh yeah that’s exactly what I’m trying to avoid. More maintenance/inspection items when I’m trying to reduce things that can go wrong lol

I have the TST system, it works fine with no mods. I just put a sensor on each valve stem, I didn't remove extensions. No muss, no fuss.

Good to hear! How is it taking the outer duallies on/off for filling?

It's a little tricky but not a big deal. I don't do it very often - I just set the pressures cold and run it. Based on what I'm seeing on the monitor, they hold pressure great.
