Recommended TPMS for 18 Wheeler  


I have 5- 18 wheel trucks and trailers. I have been looking for a simple but effective tire pressure monitoring system for my trucks and trailers. Your system does everything I need, but will it work on 18 wheel trucks and trailers? I dont need the systems that require extensive modification with air tanks compressors etc. I just want to be able to know tire pressures at a glance. Will your system work for me or are you aware of a system similar to yours that would work on my trucks?

The TPMS I recommend for an 18 wheeler is the TST TPMS for RVs part # TST-507-FT-6-C because it has a range extender and uses flow-through sensors which are both things you will need. The range extender will be needed as 18 wheels are generally pretty long in overall length and the flow-through sensors are needed because most dual tire applications use valve stem extenders and you'll need to install the sensor between the wheel and extender in order to get the proper reading.

For extra sensors you'll use Flow Through Tire Sensors for TST TPMS part # TST-507-FT-S2 which are sold in sets of two.
