Tire Carrier/Speedo & TPMS Adjustment (NH)

Hi All,
Ordering new wheels/tires tomorrow (15" MB Razor with 33x12.5x15 Duratracs) and I've got two questions: 1. What will I have to do for my spare tire carrier to work? 2. Is it better to pay the $275 for new TPMS or buy a procal? I have a 2010 Islander with stock 32" MT's.

Thanks!

Unless you are doing heavy wheeling, your stock carrier should work fine. As for TPMS, I think it's BS. I know when my tire is flat or low enough to be concerned by the way my Jeep handles. Get a Flashpaq to turn it off, change your tire size and get tuning options. Money better spent IMO

AEV Procal $159.

You will need the Daystar bumpstops for the tire to sit on your stock carrier without causing issues. Because of the new back spacing, your tire won't touch the stock bumpstops.

You can retain the stock TPMS by either pulling them out of your current wheels or picking up a set from eBay for cheaper than the shop wants. However, you do need to recal your speedo for the new tires, so the ProCal daggo mentioned will fix that and delete the TPMS if you want.

only one thing to add. once you install the new tires. measure them. just because the sidewall says 33" doesn't mean it's exactly 33", if you want your speedometer to be accurate, take the time to measure.

Very important point, my 33.1" tires were actually 33.25 and my 35's came out as 33.5, so definitely measure.

Hi! I noticed my speedometer was a bit off the other night using a GPS app. Can I just do the same thing and then change settings if reading isn't right or should I just program with my new Procal anyway?
