Thumbs up Re: Best Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems

After 4 months and lots of problems (see earlier post) I finally have my TPMS installed. I purchased the TST ( 507 internal system. I programmed the control unit and installed the repeater under the van near the rear axle (not sure I needed this). The valve stems provided by TST and the brackets supplied by TST did not work for my late 2012 sprinter 3500 dually with steel wheels and round holes. TST referred me to Bill (Borg) Falkenborg who recommended this: Since TST had promised me valve stems, they paid for these valve stems and I paid shipping. It turned out Bill sent me valve stems for early 2012 models (oval holes) and he also said I should not use the mounting brackets that TST supplied. So Bill sent me at no charge new hand-made aluminum mounting brackets and the correct valve stems. I had it all installed by a local tire dealer last week and I am very happy with this system, both the TPMS and valve stems. Here are photos before, during, and after installation:
