So I went to get some new wheels mounted for my JK and they told me they couldn't reuse the TPMS sensor they would have to cut them off since they are the rubber style. Is this Correct????

Yeah that's what I thought. He insisted that this wasn't the case and that they only re-use the metal TPMS sensors. The thing that threw me off was that this was an authorized installer from discounttire.

Don't believe that crap he's feeding u. Those sensors are about 75.00 a piece there trying to get more money out of u. The full metal ones are one piece u have to replace the hole thing if there broke. The rubber ones are two piece. They can replace the rubber part for about five a piece from the factory i changed my tires out on my 12 and haven't had any problems what so ever from them. Ur sensor will go off at first but once u get down the road the light will shut off. If the tire pressure is right

Just replaced my wheels/tires last week - they reused my TPMS sensors. No problems at all.

They only need to replace the rubber stem, not the actual sensor. Some wheels are not TPMS friendly, the angle of the stem hole could be wrong. If the sensor is positioned incorrectly a low tire or deflated tire could contact it. It also makes mounting the tire more difficult, this is the #1 reason they wont do it.

That makes sense. If they would have explained it to me like that, I wouldnt have second guessed them. Thanks:thumb:
