Going to be buying a TPMS. Looking at both TST and TireTraker.
Which one is better? Have been reading all the treads but not many mention TireTraker. I like the 3 year warranty.
Opinions please!

Only having two sets of TST TPMS systems I was biased after the first set.

TST has a great track record for almost 5 years they have been around. I would go with a proven unit with a strong customer base if I was looking for a pressure monitoring system.

I tend to stick with what I know to be a good product until I have some really solid evidence otherwise. TST for me. Works really well and they have excellent customer support.

I have TireTracker system. it has it's problems but It is the only one I have had so I can't compare it to the other, just like the others can't compare TST to Tire Tracver. The biggest problems I have is it not giving you the tire pressures until you have driven for a short distance, I want to know the PSI before I leave home where my compressor is. I also get a lot of false signals. BUT like someone else said, it is better than nothing and the price is right. Before I leave home I check all tires with a gauge and depend on the system after that.

When I first got my TST system several years ago, I had a faulty sensor. It was replaced immediately and then I sent the bad one back. I needed new O-rings Mon., sent them a message and they arrived here today N/C. This is service on a par with Fantastic vent.

With the TST, you will see the tire pressure before you leave. That's what I like so I can top off the tires before I leave if it's needed. Also they have great service. I can't comment on the others, the TST is the 1st system I have used.

I purchased tire tracker in December. One 400 mile road trip convinced me it was a winner. The tires might not show you the pressure you have before beginning a road trip but that does not mean they are not being monitored. If the tire pressure drops, moving or not, you will know about it. The only thing which bothers me is the occasional signal loss which does not last long.
