How to choose a best TPMS diagnostic, activator, program and service tool?

Wondering which tool is best for basic TPMS service or both TPMS diagnostic & service. I have some tips and brand/tools comparison table for sharing.

 

Tips:

  1. Know what functions you want, you need a basic TPMS service tool or a diagnostic & service tool.
  2. Learn the brand reputation, what I can recommend is Autel, Foxwell, Vxscan etc.
