Just FWIW, the anti-theft rings are completely optional and almost always unnecessary. I don't think I've ever heard of anyone bothering to steal a TPMS sensor.

Agree with that. I just hand tighten the “anti-theft” nut and haven’t used the tool with no issues for 2 years.

Had this one for last two years. It does what is supposed to do. Never lost the sensor reading and battery is lasting for ever. No need to hard wire or plug in.

Yes Kos, I've previously viewed their very well detailed video.


Did you obtain the flow through or non-flow through sensors AND
did you alter the OEM valve stems with after market, single piece, all metal ones or purchase the valve stem extensions listed on the EEZ web site?
Lastly, it appears EEZ offers a sensor programming service (for a nominal fee) for the folks who just need to JUST get back the road in a hurry. thanks. Dave

No. I did not get flow through sensors and I am glad I did not. Pressure reading variation comes from normal temperature change. I do not need to add air to my tires more than 1 time per year. That is when I take sensors off, replace batteries and air up the tires if they need it. Initially I used metal extended valve stem that came with my Alcoa wheels. Not a good idea. When I run over cattle guard grid on road in Utah left inner tire extended stem cracked in the middle from the shock and I got bad air leak. I managed to make it to the campground and installed my spare tire. I had tire valve replaced with normal metal stem and also removed extension from right tire. I realized that I did not need extension. I am able to remove sensor and air rear inner tires without extinction of extended stems. I just figured the way to do it. I have a right air nozzle and I can reach sensor with my hands. As long as I can do that I will never install extensions or extended stems. Just asking for trouble. Programming is extremely easy. Instructions are very clear you will have no problem.

Ended up buying the RVI Tire Patrol system.
Have had it for 6 months now when I picked up my 2019 MB.
Love the big screen, good company to deal with, a bit expensive compared to other TPMS
makes but worth it to me.
No need for antenna or booster, runs on it's own wi-fi network.
