I personally do NOT like these “caps” simply because you are relying on the cap itself to hold the air in. I prefer having two seals on the stem; one the valve core and two a sealing cap (Incase the core leaks).

Side note!
When using metal caps LUBE THEM... I use dielectric grease to help stop any galvanic corrosion, usually if you check your air pressure often this is not a problem. But either way it doesn’t hurt...

I run a Zumo 595 and I went with the Garmin cap transmitters for a TPMS given that I did the Outex tubeless conversion. Could not be happier with the result other than it takes movement to wake them up. On the Garmin I use the Left Front/Back of a 4-wheel setup for the ATAS and the Right for the Goldwing, so I get double duty. Just gives me a bit of comfort knowing that I have the TPMS on board.
