New Wheels - Need new tire sensors?

I will be getting new wheels for my new wrangler sport "17. When I buy new wheels does that mean I have to get new tire pressure sensors? Is that part of the wheel or the tire?

Also, I need help choosing between the two. What would look better in person for the black wrangler?

Yes, sensors are extra. I like the mambas more.

you can reuse your old sensors on your new rims or you can get a procal and delete the need for them.

Yeah, you can delete the system, but in N.Y. if you get your vehicle inspected, you need TPMS to be functional. Also, Tire Rack can install them when you purchase the wheel and TPMS. TPMS costs about $150 for four of them.

Thank you. So although I have to have tpms because I live in NY, can they use the same ones on my existing wheels?

Thank you! Lastly, what is a reasonable price for putting new wheels on a new car only 60 miles on? Including reinstalling tpms and all.

to mount and balance tires on rims I would say anywhere from $20-$30 a tire, unless you are buying tires and wheels at the same time then most will do it cheaper. But to carry a them into a shop I would expect to pay $20-30. All reputable tire shops deal with tpms all day long so that is no big deal for them as they have been pretty standard since about 2007 or so..

I called the shop and they told me $18 to mount and $18 to balance. So this sounds like it is probably a bad deal for me...

it is all dependent on where you are. $36 sounds high per wheel but if you can not do it yourself you have to pay to play. Shops have to make money to keep their doors open. You could buy the equipment and do it yourself but unless you have some experience changing tires you will think $36 is a pretty good deal. I have changed many in my life and unless you have a good tire machine it is a lot of work.

I would rather not take my stock rims/tires apart incase I want to reuse them or sell them. Anyone know where I can get a set (5)of TPMS sensors for a reasonable price? I already have rims/tires waiting on the jeep now. Are the sensors pretty universal or is there a specific one I need?

I have a 2014 JK Rubi X on order, just trying to get everything ordered and here before the jeep comes in.

Thanks,
