Default Tpms

My TPMS has aluminum stems. Have not seen plastic ones. Main problem I see is when you get an alert it is for a MAJOR pressure drop. I have installed an aftermarket TPMS to the stems and it reads tire temp and press at all times. It can read 22 tires (like I have that many) but it does monitor all the tires on my truck and trailer (8 in all). It saved me from a blow out recently as I had run over a nail, lost 7 psi in a trailer tire and was able to pull of the road, add air and get to a Tire Kingdom for a repair just down the road.
