Special expert tools make it easier to install and remove sensors. They also ensure that the nut and valve for the sensor holder are fixed with the correct torque.
For mounting, you can choose either an aluminium or snap-in valve (rubber valve). Separate sensor versions are available for both types of valves (to ensure that the valve and sensor are compatible).
A snap-in valve is generally cheaper and easier to install than an aluminium valve. However, it should be considered that, because of the centrifugal force, a snap-in valve can not be used at maximum speeds above 210 km/h. Aluminium valves are suitable for speeds > 210 km/h.
Please note: the valve should be inspected every time you change the tire. This involves replacing the valve insert, valve cap, nut, washer and seal. Special service kits containing the necessary spare parts are available for this maintenance procedure.
