Guide to TPMS: fitted, tested and rated

Wes gives a guide to the ARB TPMS, shows how to fit it, how it works and how it rates.

Chances are you’ve read my yarn about what exactly a TPMS (Tyre Pressure Monitoring System) is, and how it can save your life and your back pocket. If you missed it, you’ll find it here. In the video below, I’ll run through a guide to the ARB TPMS kit, what’s included in it, how it all connects up, how it incessantly beeps at you when you’ve got a tyre with low pressure, and maybe give you a sneak peek at the camper-trailer I get around in.

All in all, the ARB kit is a very straight forward bit of gear, with nothing needed more than a few minutes to read the instructions (read: destructions), then sync it up and you’re on your way. It’s worth mentioning here too (as I forget to say in the video), if you spend a bit of time off-road like I do with lowered pressures, the ARB TPMS also has an ‘off-road’ mode, so you can set the alarm at a lower pressure. For example, I’ve got mine set at 36psi for on-road, as I usually run around there, but I’ve got the ‘off-road’ setting down at 20psi, as that’s my standard go-to for when I’m out on the trails. This TPMS really is a piece of cake to set up and it does its job perfectly.

Anyway, have a look at the video below in which I go through set-up and use of the ARB TPMS, and give it a review; but, spoiler alert, it’s a magic bit of kit and I absolutely rate it.

Let us know your thoughts on our guide to the TPMS from ARB and if you use one or are looking at using one in the future. I’m honestly blown away I’ve never run one until now.
