G'day

I have just read the archived posts on this topic and am wondering what is now recommended given that 2-3 years has past since the last comments were posted.

Regards,

Andrew

I have the Sensa Tyre system on the truck and caravan. Primarily peace of mind.

However, it has been useful on a few occasions.

For me the main benefit is that you know you have a flat and on which wheel. It allows you to pull over while there is still air in the tire, find the leak and roll the tire so that the leak is easily dealt with using one of the puncture seal systems.

We have used the ARB system a few times and it worked every time.

A big Oops!!

In my F250 I had the Sensa Tyre system; in the F450 apparently - I just did my own research - I have this system:

I have the 14 wheel option because I have six on the BT and 8 on the F450.

If you call Brian at Sound In Motion he will give you all of the information.

Hello
Just fitted the Sensa system from Brian at Sound in Motion and am very pleased with the performance.
Big job for DIY (but good practice for tyre changing) and not cheap but neither are the new Cooper ST Max's on the LC200 or the Duellers on the BT

We have the Pressure Pro system and I know or several other members who have the same and that is why I purchased it, as well as being less than half the price of what SIM use.

SIM system I believe does both heat and pressure, where Pressure Pro just does pressure.
The system is very easy to install by simply just screwing a sensor to the valve and securing it with a lock nut. Batteries last about 5 years.
If you are swapping tyres around, just undo the sensor from that wheel and leave it at the location that it is set for then screw it onto the new wheel that you fit to the location.

Hi Guys,
before you buy suggest that you have a look at Inawise - the senors are within the body of the tyre. I have had them on the Toyota for 18 months with no adverse issues. They can be appied to the BTvan as well. They are a lot less expensive.
