I’m 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
