Tire Pressure Sensor Question
 
Just purchased a 14' Sahara. Want to put Mickey Thompson wheel/tire combo on her. My concern is the Tire Pressure sensors. Can sensors be added to any wheel I choose or are only certain wheels capable? Thank you in advance for any help.

should be able to be added to any wheel they attach to the valve stem if im not mistaken. You can have a tire shop swap them over from your current wheels... or have new ones installed when you buy your new wheel and tire combo.

When i bought mine i just ordered them with my combo from discount tire, they installed them and were ready to rock and roll.

Hopefully that is the case... planning on calling a local tire shop tomorrow to confirm.

I know plenty have swapped them before. You should be good to go!!!

Some aftermarket wheels will not accept sensors. Procal is the only answer.

The Supchips FlashCal will also allow you to change and even turn off the TPMS. Depending on what tires size you're going with, you may be running a much lower pressure than the system likes. So even if you get the sensors switched over to the new wheels/tires, you may get the light. The Flashcal lets you change the settings to get around that.

Let me know if you have any questions or would like a quote!

Looking at getting Mickey Thompson 32x10.5R16 possibly 15's. I like the Mickey Thompson Wheels as well but would look at others that might accept the tire pressure system. I want a wheel/tire combo that with fit with no lift.
