I was too cheap to buy Hyundai tire pressure sensors to install in my winter rims. I missed having the tire pressure readings always at hand so I ordered this aftermarket system. Is shows tire pressure and temperature for each wheel. I don't understand the reason for temperature because the sensors screw on to the valve stems so are actually reading air temperature but it's there, 4 times...lol. Bar or PSI measurement can be selectable. It turns itself on when it senses vibration.
It sits on the dash and charges by a little solar panel. It can be charged by USB too. It gives low and high pressure alarms too. The button batteries in the sensors can be changed as well. Not bad for 25 Canadian dollars, shipping included. We'll see how it holds up over the winter.

As with the old-school red / yellow / green screw-on indicators, anything that holds open the valve on the valve stem to read the pressure can leave you with a flat tire. You can get non-OEM TPMS sensors, and the installer should be able to clone the ID numbers from your original sensors so the vehicle is happy.

So far no leak issues. The sensors are not much different than the valve cap it replaces. Sure, I could get sensors to go inside the rims, but not for $25. :p
