Hub-Mounted RF Truck

The TyreAid is the only Hub-Mounted TPMS on the market. Its unique features are listed HERE in detail. However, the benefits from the hub location are also listed below.

 

Pros:

  • No need to be removed when changing tires or wheels. The unit is permanently in place and the wheels can be removed without touching the transmitter. Only the hoses need to be disconnected.

  • A hub mount means that the device has no effect on wheel balance. The rear units and trailer units are in the center of the axle while the units on the steering axle often are placed very close to the center of the hub.

  • Moves tire pressure “check point” to a convenient location. The air nipples are now at a very convenient location in the center of the axle. No need to be on your knees to fill the tires.

  • Batteries can be replaced with the unit in place. The battery compartment is located on the outside of the unit and can easily be accessed even with the unit in place. Replacing the battery requires unscrewing the battery cover and will take less than two minutes from start to finish.

  • Easy to check functionality.  Just push the test button located next to the air nipple on the transmitter and the LED will flash and the receiver will warn for a low tire.

  • Low tire warning visible from outside. The fact that the low tire warning is visible from outside without any receiver will encourage the driver to make sure his tires are correct to avoid getting negative comments from the fleet manager and colleagues.

 

Cons:

  • Hoses need to be disconnected when changing tires. Of all the TPMS systems, this is the one that requires the least extra work when tries are replaced or repaired. It only adds about an extra two minutes when changing the tires.

  • The bracket needs to be removed when filling oil on trailer hubs. The oil in the trailer hubs can be seen without removing the TyreAid, but in the case that the oil hub needs oil the three bolts for the TyreAid need to be removed. This will make the oil filling take an extra 3-4 minutes. However, the oil filling is seldom done more than once a year.
