Tire Pressure Sensors

I have the standard 16" steel wheels on my 2010 Jeep Wrangler Sport. I have bought a full set of 17" Islander / Rubicon wheels to put on it. My question is this, will the TPS units from the 16" wheels switch over to the 17" alloy wheels? The nice parts lady at the small local Dodge-Jeep dealer is not sure....
Thanks in advance,
Phil

Should not be an issue. You will just have to go through the sensor position relearn process. It is in the manual.

The parts lady is kinda special then Even then, ask SERVICE for service questions

They shouldn't even need to do a re-learn, but you may have to. Some sensors throw a code, some don't. Either way, easy to do, and then you're on your way! Enjoy- Mark W.

Thanks Mark...The service lady sent me back to the service dept and he told me I would have to get the numbers off the rims and that way the service lady could better find out for me because he had no idea

No kidding! I tried but you guys here answered my questions!
Cool

Wow- where are you located? That place is mod-clueless! If you plan on lifting, going with bigger tires, etc., I'd try to find a new place, or at LEAST talk to them about how they'll handle warranty claims. That's sounding like my awful local dealer- a 1.5" lift on Briana's JK, and they tried to deny an engine claim- WHY?! Because it's lifted. Moving on... Mark W.

Mark,
I am here in a small town in north central Indiana. As far as lifting it, for now I am keeping it pretty much stock. Gotta be able to drive it into my low clearance shop and get under the door frame. I may do a lift later, just have to wait to see if my HD Softail sells.
I wonder how a small lift causes the engine to have issues? Some dealers are not too informed on reasonable, let alone good customer service skills!
Phil
