Hi,

I have a TST 507 system, and tow a 36' Silverback behind a K2500 Chevy standard cab, standard bed with no repeater.

FWIW.

i also have the 507 and chose the type that you can check the psi and add abit without removing the TPS. i know lazy but tire pressures are critical imho.

I have rubber valve stems with the TST 507 Non-flow through. ~4000 miles so far and no issues and have not lost any air since I put them on back in April. One sensor has always read 3 psi lower than than the other 3 but I know it and compensate for it. I guess I should contact TST and get it replaced but being on the road makes that tough for shipping. I am running it without a repeater and have not lost signal as far as I know.

Please tell more about the foam collars. Where'd you get them,. What did you make them out of, picture please

Thanks. Currently sweating the same dilemma. Hate to have a tire taken off rim and put back on if avoidable. Put hate to go too far on China bombs without my TPMS mounted.

Thanks Tom

Hi Tom,

Not near the trailer now to take pictures. Sorry.

However, what I did was take a piece of high density ethafoam, and cut it into sort of a small disk and made a hole in the middle that was slightly smaller than the valve stem. I shoved it over the valve stem until it was tight against the rim and then installed the sensor.

The effect I was looking for was to create pressure between the sensor and the rim, such that the valve stem would not be deflecting, moving and abrading against the rim -- particularly when the spinning wheel hit a bump. So far, so good...

Hope this helps.

Rich

Thanks RICH Torn between winging it and either replacing the stems or reinforcing. I guess they need balancing now that the rig as a few hundred miles so will see what they want to charge me for new all metal stems at that point and wither fix em or replace em before balance.

Tom

Did you find a good metal stem? I have the same issues with the same wheels and cannot seem to find a good metal stem that the external nut and washer will fit in the angled section of rim.

I have the TST507 flothru-I did lot of looking & found a stem that was designed originally for an aluminum Ford dually-works purfectly for my use. I even called the manufacturer to discuss it with them. He even offered a little help that if I needed extra length because of wheel thickness the washer has a recess on one side that can be reversed giving more thread depth. If you get them you will understand. Dealer did not need to reverse it for my use. O'rielly auto parts have them, reasonably cheap. Their part # is 17-428 line code XTS

I forgot to mention I had to special order them. It took 1 day for me to get them. I ordered an extra one to have it if I ever needed it when on the road
