TP switch

I have a stock JK sport. I am wanting to upgrade the wheels to stock Rubicon wheels, but all I can find are ones missing the TPMS. Do I care? Do I need that? Will the ones that are on my stock 16's fit on the stock Rubicon 17's? I am sorry if I am beating a dead horse, but I couldn't find a thread that talked about this.

If I do buy different tires and I don't have these sensors will I be fighting a light on the dash?

You'd want the TPMS stems - or else you will have the light... I believe the ones on your 16's should work with the 17's from a Rubi. The most likely reason they are missing is because that seller had them put into their new rims.

To be safe on the compatibility - any good tire shop could tell you if you can swap them from rim to rim - but I am 99% confident you can - especially since you're not talking low profile tires, etc.

HTH

You can have the ones on your current wheels put on the Rubi wheels... think you just need a gasket kit or something.

I aired down to 15 a couple weeks ago to get out of a stuck and the light turned on when the first was aired down and turned off when they all got down to 15... plus it turned itself off after a few minutes when I replaced a flat and put the flat on the spare mount... Have no clue how it figures all that stuff out, but it seems to be pretty "smart" from what I've seen so far might just figure out you got no sensors and not come on.

Talking

I bought the Mopar black 17" winter/ offroad rims from a dealer at $83 each. While the tech was transferring the tpms he saw that Chrysler changed their TPMS system to a different one. Which ment that I would had to spend an additional $75 per rim to get the new sensors. I was told that some rims still fit the old sensors from Mopar, but of course, not the rim I want,,,AAARRGHHHHH

Long story short the dealer told me my last option was to ride with the tpms light on, to avoid the costly sensor price. Only flashes for the first 60 seconds after start up , then stays on. Once in a blue moon I get a message from the cluster indicating low tire. No beeps or flashes while driving.

When driving I look at the yellow light as a dollar $$$$ sign for saving $ 200 plus dollars. Time to time I check my presures with my digital pressure gauge, calll me old fashion...lol Just for the new members on here, the spare tire comes with a sensor as well.

After having the tpms in the winter , the light was always on anyways. Froze my A$$ last winter , dealing with sucha sensitive system.

MY 2 cents

You can get an AEV Procal module, that will get rid of the light/chimes/correct your speedo for any size tires you install and change your driving lights/ convert to three blink turn signal-and more !!

Cost $149 and you can use it FOREVER !!

I've used it for 2 sets of tires/wheels (no TPMS)and correcting the speedo==KEWL
