mike1158 TPMS is up to you.. but i will tell you this..i just bought a set of 5 for a 2013 off of Ebay for $50... so $80/ wheel ? ?

and i have NO LOVE for STS...they scrathed one of my wife's wheels on her 2011 Grand Cherokee...and after she said no way to them "having it refinished" they replace the wheel...and i caught them putting on a knock off... a JAP reproduction... BUSTED !

I said i want a REAL wheel...and i'm gonna come up there and watch you put it on..and that won't happen until you show me the box...with a MOPAR logo on it.

tires

Best advice is a mom and pop or i went to just tires, they were able to transfer the tpms without a problem although they said sometimes one will break while changing them over. Mine did not break and as like $80.00 Probably dont need any alignment either.

best advice you're going to find right there ^^ do you have any of those tire shops around that patch and plug tires? i'd bet they'll happily mount all five for under $100...

Ex Umbris Currus $150 AEV Procal, set TPMS to 0. Put in cheap rubber valve stems. Done. I hate the TPMS idiot light. You're going to or should air down off road and the light would be on anyway so I'd get rid of it.

i82much If it were me I'd have the regular shop do it and either skip the alignment or just have them check the alignment and make them show you that it is out. You don't necessarily need an alignment just because you are installing new tires, you need an alignment if your alignment is out whether you are installing new tires or not.

Getting Rubi Take Offs Mounted

My uncle drove his rubi straight to the shop to get new tires, lift, etc. He saved his rubi tires with less then 500 miles and gave them to me so when we go wheeling this summer I'll have a bit more traction. I am planning on getting them mounted and balanced tomorrow and here are my options when I called around.

1. STS tire said they would do it for ~$160 and if they couldn't get the TPMS from my tire they would have to order a new one at $80 per. How necessary is this sensor. I check my tires anyway, and don't need a sensor to tell me when I need air.

2. The local non-chrystler dealer said they do it for $20 per tire and a $99 alignment. They never mentioned the TPMS so I am assuming they would swap them or just not bother putting them in, which I don't care about because I can check my own air.

I'm not sure if option 1 includes an alignment, but what would everyone else do? How necessary is the TPMS?
