ADHESIVE PATCH FOR MOUNTING OF TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SENSOR

Standard tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) sensors are mounted in the base of a wheel valve stem. At high vehicle speeds, high G forces flex the valve stem and may crack the valve body.

     A TPMS wheel mounting patch would secure the tire pressure monitoring sensor to a wheel (Figures 1 and 2). The sensor could be an integral (non-removable) part of the patch or could be made removable. The sensor, through an opening in the patch body, would be exposed to the tire cavity pressure allowing the sensor to measure the pressure. The patch would secure to the tire cavity side of the wheel using either a pre-applied adhesive to the patch or an adhesive that would be applied to the wheel or patch prior to mounting.
