    hey all,

    this year, for my birthday, my wife got me a subscription to Popular Mechanics (yay wifey :)).
    so, this month there was a good article on the 2 different types of TPMS systems and how they work. it also descibes how to actually calibrate them and, after reading, it is no wonder why they are so damn expensive to buy and to calibrate.

    anyway, i thought that you all would be interested in reading the article so i scanned it for you all :)

    i left the scans large so that the text was legible.

    enjoy :)
