    This is my variation of the TPMS mod. I used 3M double sided mounting tape and one of the TPMS straps off ebay. The pics says it all.

    because I am not driving around with a device that looks like a bomb anywhere near my vehicle. Especially since I go to Canada quite often. Its a spare, so I am not too worried about balances.

    Is it possible to space those out at 90 degrees from each other?
    Then balancing wouldn't change in theory.

    Probably but I was more concerned with keeping them together so it would be easier to fit the rubber on. Only one place to really have to watch.
