Check this out:

Smartire @ Tire Rack

I think this is what he is referring to - actually seems pretty cool, but not that helpful e.g. for the track since accuracy is +/- 1.5 psi

Question

What about street use. Is there a balancing situation where more lead weight is necessary. Do you figure the Tire-Rack sensor bateries will last? Is there a more accurate sensor than Tire-Rack? Is Tire-Rack sensor and fastner mechanically strong enough to last? What are Tire-Rack's sensor weaknesses? I am considering a set....Ron

Cool

Roland, your good friend carl sells these. he may even have a used set floating around. you know... usual story... only used Sundays by a grey haired *old* man and never been much over 200 mph. To th eothers... seeing as carl has gone 198 mph with these fitted, we can assume balancing is not a problem.
