HELP Tires for 05 LT

I am not sure this is the best place for this, but here goes

Now that I've got your attention with the title, I don't want any help with the tires. I have read extensively most, mabey all?? the previous responses to other similar threads. I have concluded whatever tire makes me happy AND tire pressure are the important things. I have decided to go with the Metzler 880 bias ply, [I have had good luck with them in the past] and run with slightly higher than recommended tire pressures. So what am I doing here? Well I am an old fella and don't bend like I used to so I am considering using tire pressure monitors as a concession to my old bones. I would like to know if there are reliable monitors out there and where can I get them?

Thanks,
Austin

I'll second the SmarTire thangie. Matter of fact, I think they're headquartered in Austin's 'hood somewherez.

It just works like it's supposed to. Just make sure that whoever changes your tire knows that there are sensors in the rims.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...
