Soon all new cars will come with tire pressure monitoring systems, and a lot of vehicles have ’em already. Maintaining another computer and mechanical system will bring another set of challenges to professional and backyard mechanics — four sets of wireless, battery-powered sensors all spinning at highway speeds sounds like problems in the making. GearWrench’s Tire Pressure Monitoring Kit will help you with these maintenance tasks.
The kit includes a torque wrench that’ll apply from 12 to 120 inch-pounds, accurate within two percent. An LED and a buzzer let you know when you’ve reached the setting. The kit also comes with the 11mm and 12mm sockets needed for tire pressure management systems, as well as a “valve stem torque tool” that sure looks like the handful of valve stem removers in my toolbox.
The GearWrench Tire Pressure Monitoring Kit sell for about $150.
