Tire Sensor's

When you all bought new wheels and tires did you get them with sensors as well? Or did you just use the ones from the old set-up?

I can get 5 Pro-comp Wheels 17x9 and 5 Duratracs 33x12.50 (32.8x11.8 really) with sensor's mounted and balanced for $2400 shipped.

Is the sensor deal really that important when going with a bigger tire?

Or should I just go with the Wheels and move my factory tires to my new wheels?

When I got new wheels I had the sensors relocated to the new wheels as well. Since I went with a 35" and knew I would be running the tire pressure lower. I also got the AEV Procal to adjust the TPMS threshold. Otherwise It's going to nag you about low tire pressure warning. It all depends on what tire pressure you are going to run.

Long and short of it.

You don't want to drive around wit the light on.

If you decide you want to run those tires at less than 35 psi and don't care about the TPMS, than you need a procal ($150) to turn off the TPMS light.

A more optimal setup would be to install tpms (move existing sensors over or buy 5 for $120 off ebay) and a procal and set the threshold to 25 psi and run the tires above that.

Adding TPMS later means unmounting the tires, installing sensors, remount and rebalance - so you have an additional cost with that.

If you are ok at running your tires at 35psi, add the TPMS and skip the procal.

The procal will correct your speedo, but 33's aren't much biggen than 32's. You didn't state your current tire size - (if your Jeep has the old small 245/75/16) - you want to correct the speedo - get the procal.

Working TPMS has a benefit, but it's can be expensive and frustrating if temperamental.

If you want the sensors, then get the package with them already installed. The sensors are inside the wheel. That means that your tires need to come off the wheel (or at least the bead broken) which might require them being balanced again. The other alternatives are to buy an AEV Procal for $150 to set the tolerance to zero, or live with the light on your dash.

Heh Heh, I've had my Hankooks set from 5psi-various to 35 and I haven't seen/heard a "peep" for over 2 yrs !

The AEVPM is an extremely useful tool--many other reasons forit-

I didn't bother with the sensors. I get one chime on start up and a tiny yellow light. I'll gladly deal with that over $200 in sensors

I am having mine transferred. They have save the day more then once for me so I am having mine pulled and put in the new wheels. Not sure what a rebuild kit is but Discount Tire threw a set in with my new tires for the transfer.

Didnt get them installed. Used the extra money saved to buy a superchips programer. You will need this to adjust the Jeep for the new tires anyway, and with this you can turn off the TPMS.

That was the quote from 4Wheelparts.....

Ultimetly I go from being confused from one topic to another.... I finally got the lift issue taken care of and now its a sensor issue...

I am leaning toward just getting the TF lift from Northridge with exhaust spacers and the new bolt replacement and just going with spidertrax wheel spacers and using my factory wheels and tires....

Or the Northridge deal plus just the wheels which are $709 for 5 17x9 Procomps and using my factory tires for now....

When whoever installs the lift shouldnt they be able to take the old sensors and put them on the new wheels since the tires arent getting bigger?

You didn't post your year.

The '08 and '09 sensors have a sleeve that unscrews for removal. Sometimes that sleeve corrodes and seizes - making removal difficult without damage.

The newer ones look easier to remove and install easy.

Whitey - I was jut thinking the same thing. I'm getting new wheels and rubber and skipping the sensors. I'll just go old school and look at my tires and check the pressure occasionally. Like we all used to do anyway.

I think I'm doing the same... I won't be going off-road that much anyway... I will just check occasionally as well..

Anyone have any links on all black 15's? I want to try and get wheels/tires/lift with my loose cash I have for my jeep...

So links on 15's that will fit my '12 JKUS would be awesome...
