Test results
CHOICE Expert Rating (%) Expand to view more details.

This overall score is made up of accuracy (70%), display (15%) and ease of removing the sensor to adjust tyre pressures (15%).

Accuracy score (%) Expand to view more details.

The tyre sensors were fitted and paired to the display device as per the manufacturer’s instructions. Tyre pressures were adjusted to 35psi using a calibrated reference pressure gauge, and then readings were taken from the device’s in-car display. The results were averaged and then scored according to the difference from the reference reading.

Display score (%) Expand to view more details.

The display was assessed for quality and clarity of readings.

Ease of removal score (%) Expand to view more details.

The sensors were removed from the tyres to evaluate how easy it is to adjust tyre pressure if required.

Flexibility of alert settings score (%)

Pressure range (psi) Expand to view more details.

The range of pressures at which the sensors are claimed to be accurate. Be sure to choose the product that's suitable for your application. Four-wheel-drives may use pressures below 20 psi, regular road cars usually somewhere between 25 and 40 psi, and some caravans and trailers requiring over 50 psi.
