I bought a set of almost new rubicon wheels and tires. The tpms sensors are still in the tires. My wrangler, 2015 unlimited, will not read them. Is there something I'm missing. Been driving on them for 2 weeks now and nothing.

What year Rubicon are they supposed to have come off of?

Are you sure the transmitters are still in the wheels? (Transmitter is in the wheel, sensor is on the Jeep).

Have a tire shop scan the wheels to see if the sensors/transmitters are there and if they are then they can read the frequency to see if it's correct and also battery life. The tires don't have to be broken down. The shop can also quick synch the system through the OBD port if everything is correct.

Thanks all, they came off a 2016. He told me they were still in there. I'll take it to the local tire shop and have them scanned.

A 2015 should definitely read 2016 transmitters. It would seem more than likely to me that they are not in there. If you have a good sized air compressor (not the little 12v job) and a ratchet strap you can check on it yourself. Remove the spare, air down the tire (remove the valve stem). Then pop the bead at the valve stem, and look inside. You don't have to pop the bead all the way around.

Then using the ratchet strap around the tire put pressure on the tire with the strap so that the bead of the tire is in contact with the wheel. Then put air in the tire to pop the bead back in place. You can then either let all the air back out and insert the stem or fight the air flow to reinsert the stem.

I have seen countless techs air up new tires and if you have ever noticed the tire machines have clamps that put pressure on the tire to put the bead in contact with the rim. A good air compress will allow you to put air in the tire faster than it can leak out and then you hear that satisfying pop when the bead goes home.

I learned the ratchet strap trick on a tractor tire that had leaked down and then came off the rim.

Here are several sources for the transmitters (they do call them sensor/transmitters):

If you shop Amazon, you can register your Jeep by make, model and year. Then when you click on parts it will tell you if they fit. It is pretty accurate, but nags when you buy a part that is not designed for that year but will work anyway. Like when I purchased the H4 eCode lights and adapter to replace the stock wimpy headlights.
