    4 yrs out of road pilot 4s I changed to road pilot 5s not much driving till after Christmas , I changed to Dunlop road smart before the 4s which I did not like at all , could feel the road coming up the  pegs and handle bars  change after a few weeks , bought a tyre pressure monitoring  why I don't know but I like gadgets

    Iím intrigued by that gadget. Do the caps come off easily to put air in?

    Cool  :062:

    But the temp of the cap is not really the temp of the tire I suppose.
    As long as the pressure is correct, that's the main thing.

    Just a caution, always use metal valve stems as the rubber ones will fatigue with TPMS.  Several choices out there.  Most convenient ones are t-stems, which will save you from removing the TPMS sensor when wanting to air up.

    @raYzerman THANK YOU, I never thought of that , I was looking at them in the bike shop when getting the tyres fitted , back to the old dust caps for now
