opinions wanted: tyre pressure monitoring system
i am curious to know your opinions on the tyre pressure monitoring system (tpms). on my car, it gives a set of readings. i checked those readings against a (manual) tyre gauge and got a second set of readings. i tested a second gauge (for three sets of readings), and alas, it gave me a different reading than the previous two. what to believe?
i'm concerned because i don't want to ruin the amg sportline rims with air pressure that is too low not to mention the faster wear on the tyres with under/ over inflation (and to a lesser degree the impact on gas mileage).
i talked with the benzo dealer, and they said 'believe the tpms' as it works well.
(nb - apologies for reposting this question here on the 'general' message board; it is a repost from the s-class forum below. i realised just this morning that this topic is generic to all benzos with the tpms - not just the s-class. i may get greater exposure and more opinions by posting here. cheers.)
