    Yeah, that's the one. The shipping is going to cost more than the item. I ordered 10 pc boxes for my Toyota, Honda, and Nissan.
    Another source is listed in my comment #7 for $1.60 each, but with shipping, it won't be much saving buying just one.

    Was going to throw some valve stems in but what is the diameter of the valve stem?

    Are you talking about a regular rubber valve stem? That I don't know. Aren't they standard for most passenger cars? Never sourced valve stem on my own. It always came with tire installation.

    Yep/looks like .453 for just about everything.

    Did the deed! 10 kits, valve stem puller, and a couple of valves for my parts drawer.

    One last happy update. Once I knew to set the TS508 to the Prius 2020 setting rather than to Prius Prime, the relearn function worked perfectly. Took less than 10min and went as expected. Can't believe the dealership wanted $180 for 10min of work...

    Congratulations. I just received a promotional email from Autel about updated software. They might have fixed the bug by now.

    I believe a SiennaChat moderator (fibber2) uses the TS508 and recommends it to forum members. He noted he got an excellent deal watching Amazon with sensors package. A note I learned from him: It only can program Autel brand sensors meaning writing ID to the sensors' memories. It can ping and read any brand sensors...

    That said for a long time I was watching the TS601, which includes some OBDII diagnostics scanner capabilities as well as lifetime updates.

    Relatively new products, but not the "best deal", I guess you could say honorable mentions:

    ATEQ QuickSetX- about $250 retail, only 2 years free updates

    Autel MaxiTPMS ITS600- about $495 retail but I bumped into 15% off, with some OBDII functions and lifetime updates, upgradable to Pro (don't know the cost) with full OBDII function but that portion is only given 1 or 2 years of free updates. (I bought this one but don't plan on getting the Pro upgrade).

    Side note! The Toyota 10 spoke rims are made in China and it took about an ounce of weight to balance with an ounce (stick on) on the inside of inner rim and and once (pound on) on the outside (facing inward) on opposite points of the inside of the wheel.
    Just seemed to be a lot of weight to me on opposite points on the wheel.
    Both dots were close together on the tire and opposite the valve stem.

    My son said to look on the wheel for balancing marks from the factory but I do not know where to look .

    Won't know how they drive until my first flat tire.

    Side note my stem valve kits are on backorder>

    Anyone order from these folks and have good results?

    I just checked my record. I thought I ordered mine from them but turned out, I did order from them and I canceled it due to my error in picking the correct part number. I was looking for a TPMS kit for Nissan Pathfinder, but they did not have the part number I should have ordered. . So, after making the wrong order, I contacted them and canceled it. I ended up getting the correct part which Tire Supply Network did not have from a different vendor, Roadrunner Distributing. But it cost more with shipping. Still, since I ordered for our three cars, Nissan, Honda, and Toyota, and 10 each, a total of 30 pc, the average cost was like $2.50/pc (with shipping) much cheaper than one I could find at a dealer or at a local auto store.

    If you only need a couple of them you can get a TPMS service kit from Amazon or eBay.

    I afraid I never bought those tire pressure rebuild kits except directly from the store who repair or replace a tire. (Wish I could share experience with that but I'm afraid I have none. Surprisingly when you get a free flat repair at America's Tire they give one for free).

    ITS600 arrived yesterday. Sure enough it asks for 5 sensors. Bought four from a member here and America's Tire told me one was dead and sold me a new sensor for $60. I put that one on the spare wheel in disbelief. Sure enough the other four are good and the fifth non-responsive. I ping the four spares that I have sitting around, three are low battery and one is good. It wasn't easy trying to find someone to replace the sensor for me on Easter Sunday but I did. Now to see how the system reacts to a properly programmed 5th sensor. (Gonna press the TPMS button under the dash to set the pressure thresholds).

    Be right back...

    Yes, usually the TPMS service kit is included in the fee of new tire installation or any time tire is dismounted and re-mounted. The problem is that if it is not done at a dealer, tire shops sometimes do not have stock of the correct TPMS service kit. If they don't have one in stock, they will skip changing the TPMS service parts. This makes the valve stem to be prone to leaking. I had several tires developing a slow leak due to unchanged TPMS service kits at the time of tire installation at Walmart. After buying the kit myself and taking them to the same Walmart tire center, they installed the TPMS service kit on the tires for free of charge for me.

    Just to update I started the car into READY mode and TPMS light on dash was blinking yellow. No matter how long I press the button it doesn't stop, eventually going solid. I realize it should be Ig-ON and READY-OFF. Tried the button again. Finally plugged in the scanner and went to the back and triggered the spare manually with the tool. It read the 62 PSI and battery OK. Drove around maybe 2 mi and no more warning light....
