They've been avlb for a sometime now and I thought there should be some feedback on them by now and which seem the best.

I see costs have come down a bit. There seems to be different types. Are they accurate? especially in the psi readings.

Thinking of fitting before the big trip, any one using them and any recommendations.

Cheers
John

We put a Tyresmart from Artron on about 16 months ago. Very happy with it. Checks tyre pressure, tyre temperature, and pressure bearings. Tyre pressure accurate within 1.5 psi. I have just bought two more sensors to put on a camper trailer.

The above should read pressure variance not pressure bearings.

If you need more info feel fee to ask.

I have Smartire fitted now for about 9 months. Good. Does all the stuff that it says it does. Easy to set up. Makes you very aware of what the tires are up to. Have set on 4x4. Another set on boat trailer and will be fitting another set to the 3 axled caravan soon

How much were they with the addnl set?
Does the extra set on the trailer need a 2nd main unit? How does that work?

Cheers

Are they a wireless type thingo that you would also put on your spares??

Can they handle say 8 different sensors??

So far I've seen the Smartire selling at $580 (4 sensors) plus fitting(?). 100+ prob.

They are wireless. I know they can handle 6.

Thanks John
I lost the Hub, suspension and all from a Camper Trailer on the Gibb a few years ago and drove another 400-500metres before I even knew what was going on!!

With all the dust I could'nt see a thing out the back. When we finally pulled up I had made a grove in the track that went for well over a km with what was left of the axle. It then took us 40mins to find the Hub!!

With the total loss of pressure I would of know straight away and maybe not done the damage to the suspension, water tank etc.

We were back on the road after about 4 hours but the family were pretty stressed by then with nightfall coming.

Thanks to Norm & Toni at Ellanbrae Station whe treated us to a big feed and made it all seem like just a walk in the park.
