TIRE PRESSURE EQUILIZER

Has anyone tried the Crossfire, or Cateye systems?

I've seen them and of course big trucks have them too.
But the problem I can see on a single rear axle is if one tire goes down, the other will too. On a tandem setup that's fine but idk if I would on a single.

These things only work on dually's, and only on the tires bolted together. You cannot connect them to different sides or axels

Yea? I understand that. I have a dually. My previous statement still stands. I'm talking about not having another drive axle to support the weight of that rear side if one set of duals goes down.

yup one flat will turn into 2 very fast and you will shred both tires instead of just one. And because you dont have an extra rear axle, tandem, you will be SOL.

They advertise that there is a check valve to prevent a double tire failure. Speaking of tire failure if you are not carrying a load how do you know if one tire goes flat?

You'll feel all that dead weight flopping out of balance on the axle.

'Crossfire employs a safety feature that automatically isolates the "good" tire in the event of a blowout. When a blowout occurs, the internal safety valve closes immediately with only a slight loss of pressure to the "good" tire.
In slow leak situations, the valve isolates both tires after a pressure drop of approximately 10 P.S.I.'

'The internal check valve will prevent the good tire from going flat in the case of a tire blowout or a broken pressure hose.' - Cat's Eye

So they've fixed the problem I'm curious to know how it works now in case of dramatic pressure loss.
