After i drive for an hour or so the pressure will rise to about 95-98 psi and the temperature will rise to around 100įF. I know the EEZE tire is giving a good reading on the pressure, I've checked them hot and cold with a manual and digital tire gauge. I know they are going to heat up and build pressure, just seems like a lot of difference in psi and temperature. Is this normal? Thoughts? 19.5" tire.
Put a piece of tape over the screen and problems solved. They did the same thing before. Only worry if psi falls below 40 psi.

Tape over the screen hides the display so no worries over pressures or temps.

How would Nitrogen help somebody who races for a living?

Now, Helium, that I could understand. Might reduce the weight of the vehicle by 0.11 pounds. Just enough advantage to win the race.

But, you could get the same advantage by urinating before getting into the drivers seat.

If using the tape just remove the TPMS instead!
