I mounted my wireless tpms receiver right next to my rear view camera receiver on the rear truck glass - less metal to transmit through. Will be making a wide clear plexiglass "business card" style holder to hold them in position - the vhb tape mount shown is temporary.

Of course after I got all the truck wiring done, I found a surface-mount 12V socket that looks like it has a lot of possibilities:

Hoppy 55110 12-Volt Power Socket


Have to scroll way down the page, layout is a bit goofy.

Shouldn't, but I'm sure some of these TPMS systems and rear-view cameras are cheap stuff, and may either create noise way outside of their allocated frequency band (probably harmonics of the desired frequency), or be affected by radio signals way outside of that band.

I used the TireTraker and wheels did not need rebalancing

Used the Tire Traker for three years dual axle on-the-road in Australia. Some problems with signal not getting through and dead sender batteries. But... Warned me of a slow leak in time to have it repaired and once when the Australian sun degraded the tire stem enough to cause a leak. Plan to have on on any trailer I get here
