Tire Pressure Sensors

What happens if I buy new rims and tires and don't put in any sensors? With my 35s on my stock 18s I just have a low tire pressure sign when I started it, until I change it to something else, and I always have the little light on. Is that all that will happen if I don't put any bands or sensors in my new tires and rims?

The light on the dash will stay illuminated. I did the same thing.

"Tire pressure monitoring system fault" message in the display center. Can be cleared by hitting "reset".

Yes, same thing will happen.

Thats partly why I picked the Interco SSM16. They are to be inflated to 65psi so im hoping when i swap the sensors to the new wheels and tires that I wont have any dash lights. That would drive me nuts.

If the tire PSI matches that of the PSI rating printed on the driver side pillar sticker, and you have the sensors installed in the new tires, then they will work without tripping the TPMS signal.

You may have to use the little TPMS control to tell the system where each sensor is located (which corner). But not positive about that.

Can I take my sensors off my stock rims and put them on aftermarket rims? Where is the sensor at on the tire?

I wanted to let everyone know what happened with my sensors. When I installed my wheels and tires on my truck I had a sensor light and couldnt get it to go away for several months. I needed to tow my car trailer so I switched to the 210 tune and all of a sudden the light went away and I have gone back and forth from the 210 to the 275 and it has not come back on at all....

The sensor is on a metal strap, kinda like a big radiator hose clamp wrapped around the rim. Approximately 180 from the valve stem. The sensors can be put on and size wheel as the straps are typically custom fitted to the rim size if they have the strap material and tool to add them or by using the adjustable strap, which is the big radiator hose clamp I describe. You can buy adjustable ones or universal straps from eBay and online vendors.

Curious. Are the tires the same PSI as the door sticker or different?
