After Market Wheels

Guys when you replace stock wheels with aftermarket do you have to replace the low pressure sensors, or can you just remove the fuse? The sensors are crazy in price. Options and or ideas? can the stock ones be put in the new wheels?

Thank you. Do you have to put them back in? I know there will be a low tire light come on, but there has to be a fuse for that? Thanks again.

No you don't have to put them back in, but how low is your tire pressure?

You can't pull a fuse. You need a programmer to adjust the computer. You're going to need one anyway to reprogram your speedometer for larger tires anyway.

You don't need to replace the entire sensor...but you should replace the stem. Stems are very cheap...maybe 5 bucks each at the most. Your tire shop probably has the stems.

Thanks again guys. For sure I would replace the stems with new ones. I just did not want to invest in the new sensors, to expensive. As far as knowing my tire pressure, I always relied on my hand held device, I trust it much more. Thanks again.
