DIY: tire bands for Air Pressure Sensors
 
vo7888 at my350z.com has a write up on creating tire bands for Air Pressure Sensors. This is a great DIY for those wanting to see their air pressure on their tires on the fly.

Interesting.

You know, I bet once you have air pressure monitors on a vehicle, it's the type of thing that makes you wonder "what did I do without these before..."

I don't think so - just the person at the other forum, linked above.

The TPMS on nissan is similar to BMW/ Mercedes (the only ones I've worked on)? I'm not a member on 350z forum.


Or for a vehicle not previously equipped with TPMS
$176 Not BAD, but I'm not buying ne anytime soon.

There is a cheaper alternative... I've seen valve stem caps at Wal-Mart that will change color if your tire is running low. Sure, you actually have to get outside your car and visually check them, and they won't tell you if your tires are over-inflated, but even though I don't remember the specific price, I'm sure they are a lot cheaper than a TPMS.

Tire Minder
 
Here we go. I found the Tire Minder system for under $20. :thumbup: There may be cheaper versions available. I'm not sure.

I had a set of those once. The 32 psi version. They wouldn't show yellow until about 26-27 psi, and red was down at about 20. Maybe if you got some in 50 psi and tried to keep it in the yellow zone for 44. Then again, I doubt they'd accept the liability of making these for pressure above the tire's sidewall.

Hmm. I don't quite recall.. but I think I used one of them ancient tire thingy's. Reminded me of a rod, sometimes I'd see a gauge looking thing, but... wait are those things still around??? :D

Yea, except they don't recede until they reach about 20psi. then they say your tires are low :mad: My mom used to have some. You can tell when your tires low by that point! When you look at the front of the tire and see that it's squishy you know that you need to put air in it!
