A lot of discussion on tire pressure gauges. I have a thought and a comment. My wife's car has an OEM TPMS. It was showing that two tires were low. As we are moving, all my gauges and stuff are packed in boxes. So....I go over to my PC storage area and get the big, truck tire gauge. It would barely register and was letting air OUT of the tire. Something I read on another thread led me to believe that the truck gauge is not malfunctioning, but there is not enough air in the auto tire for it to work properly. Could this be the case? When I get back to my PC, I will test it. Fortunately, there is an air compressor available to renters. Now I forgot my other point! Oh....with all this talk about tire gauges (I know it was more about the accumulator tank than tires) I'm surprised that the topic of those "infra red"(?) gizmos that read tire temperature and anything else. I have never had one and never really saw the need. Do any of y'uns use one?Cheers Barry T

For tire systems, are you using flow thru sensors or cap sensors? Seems to me you can read tire pressure with flow thru. The cap sensors require them to be removed, it that true? The borg and tts are comparably priced. I requested from tts how often the sensors reports back data. The borg is every 5 minutes. TTS has color display for additional $30.Thanks for the info.
