New TPMS Solution


Recommended Posts

Myers Tire Supply is pushing a new TPMS solution. I played around with it at SEMA this year and it seems like an excellent and affordable system. Here is the link: http://www.alligator-sensit.com/

 

Rather than having to purchase a new OEM sensor, they sell an aftermarket replacement that can clone the defective sensor. You program the new sensor using a simple little USB pad that works with any computer. They claim to have about 85% model coverage growing to 90% by the end of the year. They are saying software updates will be free. I guess they are planning to make their money on the sale of the aftermarket sensors and accessories (valve stems, cores, o-rings, etc). It looks like a great system with the total start-up cost around $750. The sensors are supposed to sell for around $25-35 i believe. Anyone have any experience with it yet? If all true, it seems to be an excellent solution with good profit potential.

It looks promising, but the website is horrible. There is also the Redi-Sensor by VDO or the universal one by Schrader. The VDO sensor, from what I've seen doesn't need ANY specific hardware. All you do is install the sensor and use your standard TPMS tool to set it for the vehicle. To be honest, they all look promising. I have yet to be able to find out where to purchase them.

From what I've read on the Schrader and VDO, they are mainly covering domestics. They covers almost no imports with their universal systems as of now.

 

This system is the first I've seen that has such wide coverage. I agree that the website is terrible. If I hadn't put my hands on it at SEMA, I wouldn't even consider it based on internet info.

I saw this tool in a shop today and the ower swears by it. Hooks up via usb, and runs a program on the pc. He opened the program and it prompted an update automatically to the software which was good to see that they release updates for it.

      Now that I am not a shop owner, I had to make an appointment to have the A/C checked on my wife's car. While the vehicle was being serviced, the tech noticed a bubble on the tire. I told the service advisor to get me a good set of Michelins.  He said that might be hard since he had trouble getting some sizes and models.  My wife drives a Mercedes E350. 
      Are you seeing tire-related shortages too?
