radiant barrier under tin roof

I've read where radiant barriers intstalled in attics will only increase the surface temperature on a roof by 2-5 degrees F, however this is on a shingle roof. Does anyone know if it is a bad idea to install a radiant barrier to the under side of a truss on a tin roof?
