TPMS in new tires or AEV Procal

About to purchase some new wheels and tires. Going to go with 33" Duratracs and wondered if I should pay tire shop to pull TPMS modules from stock wheels/tires to put in new ones, or would I be better off putting that money toward buying an AEV Procal. I have read other discussions about how people air down their tires to get a better ride on the street. Did not know if going from 35 psi to around 30 psi would make the TPMS go off? If it does I would think having the Procal make more sense. Just wondered what everyone thinks? I have a 2011 JKU manual transmission. Thanks.

I'm running 33" Dick Cepek Mud Country on a 16" wheel (305/70R16) @ 30 psi and will tell you that will set off the TPMS annunciator (dealer did the lift and wheel/tire so it came with TPMS sensors installed). It's set somewhere around 32 PSI as besti can tell. I'll be getting the Procal as well.

I would have them pull out the TPMS stems, valves, and all parts and then sell them on eBay. The AEV cost $149 and is well worth the price. I took out my TPMS when I got my 33s but haven't gotten the procal yet. I have to put up with the warning light on my dashboard which is not fun. The TPMS systems cost about $100 each so you could easily get enough money from the sell of them to buy the AEV and other candy for your jeep. You'll be able to set your computer to zero psi and never have any warnings when you air down or your pressure changes.

Run without the sensors and get the ProCal. If you have the sensors, they are usually set higher PSI than what most guys run their MT's at. Also, if you air down for off road, it will also set of the sensors. So, save the money and forgo them...

Straigh dope--it'll also correct your speedo, adjust your tranny (auto), setup different driving lights and set high idle for off-road power/winching/inverters-etc--unless-

You're talking about a 2012 jeep-then good luck

Thanks guys. I think I will pull them and try to sell 'em, sounds like a great idea. Looks like I'll be buying myself a procal.

If this forum wasn't showing me so many ways to spend my money, I'd consider. See that you are running the MB72's. How is their finish, the pics look like they have a shine. I have been comparing them to the Pro Comp 7069's and the Pro Comps seems to be more of a flat black, or is this just the pics I've been looking at?

I just disabled my TPMS today with Superchips flashpaq. Really easy to do.

The MB72s are offered in two finishes, a matte black and a polished "shiny" black. I have the matte flat black.

Yes, as stated above the MB72's come in a matte black. That might be your best option. We have found out that the Pro Comps are hard to come by in JK friendly sizes...

^.. thanks - I was just pricing wheels/tires locally and the TPMS at $55 each is a little high.. I will be getting the AEV procal likely first and not using TPMS..

Yes, I would go that route. For $149.99 with free shipping, it is a great place to start!

Thanks, I was surprised how much they were. I plan on keeping my stock wheels for winter( since NW indiana/chicago ) is pretty rough on wheels with the salt. I looked for tire/wheel combo's locally - I didn't see package deals on your website? do you offer pre-mounted tire/wheel combo's

Marc,

Yes sir we do! The stock and prices change so often that we have yet to find a good way to add them to our site, especially with all the options. BUT, we can get you setup! Feel free to PM or email us and we can get you taken care of, even with the ProCal!

-Jason
