TPMS Question

I purchased a set of 2013 Rubi take off wheels and tires without the TPMS. I want to leave the sensors that came with my 2010 Sahara in the original tires and use them as a set if road tires. Will running the Rubi take offs without the sensors cause any warning lights?

Thanks!

Yes, you'll get a low pressure light on the dash. You can purchase a Procal to turn the light off ($150) or put sensors in the tires. Sets can sometimes be had for around $60-$100 off ebay. Then you have to pay for remounting and balancing.

or just ignor the light or stick a piece of black tape over it.

Thanks got the response. I like the black tape option but buying new sensors for the Rubi take offs is probably the smart thing to do.

I would argue the ProCal is the smart thing to do. They sensors do fail over time and have to be replaced. Plus, if you air down going off-road you never have to deal with the light or pinging noise again. The ProCal can do lots of other useful things as well such as recalibrating the speedo for larger tires, adding DRLs, etc.

Just a heads-up on the PROCAL option...
I took the tires/rims off my 2012 and bolted them up to my 2013. Because the sensors on the 2013 operate on a different frequency than the 2012, I threw a light. The PROCAL wont clear the light, no matter WHAT I set the pressure to. Until I pick up a set of 2013 sensors, its the black tape technique for me.

Don't know what you did, but I check procal to -0- and shut off light and chime for 2012 wheels mounted on 2013 JKU.

Once you get the price for the sensors and installing them, which means dismounting the tires and balancing them, you'll discover that purchasing the Procal is actually the smart thing to do.
