Aftermarket Tyre Pressure Sensors

Post by wilkie senior »

Hi

I was wondering has anyone used those Tyre Pressure Sensors, such as on Fleab bay & Damazon :-)

Hi mate,

Do you mean the TPMS ones or just the little handheld gauges?

Cheers

Hi There The TMPS ones the Sensors & Valve you replace on your wheels

I suppose the down side is potential damage when having new tyres fitted?

My honest thoughts are they are probably rubbish :-)

I have a set of Xiaomi TPMS, but not fitted yet so cannot give a honest opinion.

My tire guy wasn't blown away when I told him I want them in for my next set.
He was concerned about the longevity of the o-ring which seals on the rim when installed. He said they always fail over time.

Still, I trust Xiaomi and since I have them, I will get them installed.

As for damaging during installation, these (at least my set) comes with a warning sticker set which should be placed beside the valve on the rim.
I wouldn't be concerned about that kind of damage.

I'd say the best thing is to stop by at a tire shop and ask their opinion.

I'll be curious about the longevity of this branded Chinese stuff.
