Upgrading wheels and tires from stock. Do most people pull the TPMS out of the stock wheel and reuse or buy new ones? Or do you just delete it and live without it ?
13 and 14 are the same frequency. 12 and earlier are different. Dealership can not reprogram for the wrong sensors.Ive read that the frequency changes sometimes from year to year. Not every year, but it it changed recently. I got some new ('13) rubicon take offs that did not come with TPMS. When getting them put on my '11 JKU they switched over the old sensors to the new tires and everything worked great. They said it was a pain in the ass, but they got em moved over. I think the new '13 sensors would not have worked with my '11 jeep. But, I'm not sure, I think the dealership can reprogram your car to be compatible with different or new sensors, or just turn it off.
I could not give a crap about tire sensors, I just didn't want the little light flashing at me all the time.
Agreed. I plan to do the same when I get my JK.
That's not entirely true, they caught a tire on my wife's car when she was on her way to work and picked up a small piece of razor blade. Luckily it caught it before it got flat enough to cause a handling problem or blowout. BTW, I had checked them less than 24 hours before while changing the oil and rotating the tires. I like it and will keep it in my JK, in fact I did when I got new wheels and tires.TPMS was designed for soccer moms who don't know how to check tire pressure.
