Are TPMS vehicle specific?

Ive got a guy that im going to trade rims with but wanted to know if the tpms sensors are vehicle specific. I was hoping we could just trade rims and tires and not have to jack with the sensors. I just dont want to switch them and then us both drive off and get the TMPS CEL light.

the superduty TPMS are set to a higher pressure. Otherwise they are not specific. Ford is only using about 3-4 different sensors right now. So if you are going superduty to superduty it should not be an issue. If its something else...you may have problems.

Yes, the computer tells what sensors are in the tires and you cannot change them out, I've tried!!

Do you think it would know the diff from one superduty to another.

this should not be an issue. May just have to reactivate when they get to your truck.

With the little TPMS puck. You have to tell the computer which sensor is where.
