Im using the Doran HD 360 as well. In making your decision you might want to consider the lifecycle of the transducers that go on the tire. I got between 2-1/2 and 3 years out of my sensors. They have a battery in them and are a sealed unit. You can't replace the battery. Once it dies you have to buy new sensors. I just replaced 18 sensors at around 900.00 CAN. I didn't realize id have too buy sensors every 2-3 years. Other then that it's a great unit. You might want to compare other units sensor replacement costs.

I have a Hawks Head TPMS system on truck only and I would suggest you buy a different system. I am not impressed with it at all!!

I got a hawkshead system for Christmas after 5 weeks I sent it back because 4 out of 10 sensors quit working, I was passed to 30 day money back guarantee so they just replaced the sensors. I've had it back for 3 weeks and seems to work ok but some sensors sometimes won't update for a couple of hours. I'd recommend having a tpms but not this one.

I like my TST (Truck System Technologies) tire pressure and temperture sensors that work great. I had to add a repeater to pick up signals due to using wheel stainless steel wheel covers on my super singles.

I've been using Pressure Pro for about a year and a half. Works pretty good. I do have a problem in the winter with moisture getting into the sensors and giving me a false reading. It's only happend twice. I just removed the sensor and reinstalled. Otherwise I love them.

In January 2000 I installed PressurePro and it still works! Thats 12 years and the battery's are still working, I can't believe it myself, they said maybe 5 years then send them in and they would rebuild them with new battery's but so far so good. They have saved me lots of money in tire life, and also saved me money for tire rims when I did get flat's.

It's not a TPMS but my buddy uses Crossfires for quick look at his pressure. He likes that over the TPMS because it ties the two tires on each axle position together and has a quick read display on it.

I heard someone call it an Eagle Eye the other day. He prefers that because it still requires he walk around and look at it and from time to time put the gauge on it to verify it's telling the truth. He figured it was cheaper that way than a TPMS since he does a full walk around pre-trip and post-trip and also does a quick walk around every time he stops.

He loves the system and I'll probably be getting it once I get the truck operating properly again.

I think you mean Cat's Eye, not Eagle Eye. I'm just sayin'.

I just installed the Tyre Dog system and works great although the batteries that came with it were cheap and I have to replace them with better ones.

If you have a TPMS were you screw the sending unit onto the valve stem, I would put some diselectric grease on the valve stem treads. The valve stem treads are usually brass & if the sending unit threads are a different metal, they will corroid.

I use the Truck System Technologies (TST) units. They screw on valve stems and deliver pressure and temperature. They just announced they have new sensors with valve stems on so you don't have to remove the sensor to adjust pressure. They work great on all 6 of my tractor tires. Every once in a while one is not being received by the receiver, a reboot usually takes care of it.

Early this summer, having had "winter" pressure in my tires, it alarmed to warn me of over-pressure in my drive tires. It's nice to have the information available, especially since I have super singles.

Make sure you have the repeater to make signal stronger and not loose readings.

Ok I now have the same company one as Dan. I got it at the Truck show for $399 for 6 of the ones that go inside the tire. So far so good

Make sure you get the right valve steams. I got the short ones and cant mount the two on the front yet. I called the company and they are sending the longer ones. Also get the repeater, you are most likely going to need it.

I have a pressure pro system. When I decided to switch to supersingles I was not doing it without a monitering system,that way I can see an air loss before it strands me on the side of the road. I love my system and do not to plan on running a truck without them
