Only of your car is equipped with TPMS and you want the system to function with your new wheels

Thanks for the reply. I believe my car has this because it sometimes comments "low tire pressure in spare." Is there a thread on this so I can stop asking so many questions? I just need to know if I need to buy new sensors. I just bought the Nitto Invos today. I just want to do this the correct way so any other advice is appreciated. Thanks -Chris

I'm sure you can find some additional info on this forum. A current thread on this topic is as follows: http://300mclub.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=29499. It contains a link for TPMS on Amazon and a suggestion by FireM how to get them cheaply using a discount online. Additionally, here is a link for some on eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/350512703917?_t ... EBIDX%3AIT.

These things aren't cheap! Based on the eBay price, they are over $35 each. You may be able to get them cheaper following Bob's (FireM) advice. Good luck!

Thanks for the reply. I will purchase these if I need them but can I just use the ones on the stock wheels or do I have to buy these in order to install the 20s? Where exactly are these things located on the wheel?

They're inside the tire, a part of the valve stem. You can have a tire shop pull your current ones out of your OEM wheels and install them on your new wheels, but then you'd have to repeat the procedure if you instead to reinstall the OEM wheels for winter. I have my originals on my OEM wheels in the basement, and a new aftermarket set on my 20" wheels on the car. I suggest getting Schrader brand instead of Dorman. I bought four Dormans May 2013 when I got new tires, and two of them crapped out by May 2014.

The other downside to this is that if you are getting a message that the trunk sensor has died, it's likely that all are close. The trunk goes first because it's farthest from the sensor. I would put a new set in the new wheels if I were you.

Thanks for the advice. I had my hdc3 18 sub sitting in the trunk so it first said the message about being "low pressure" and then the second time it told me to "remove magnet from spare" so I am just hoping it was the magnet messing it up but I still may buy some new ones just in case. I am now curious how to install a large system in the trunk if it recognizes the magnet? I thought it was crazy how it recognized a magnet in the trunk but I am new to this car so it amazes me everyday. Thanks again -chris

Thanks for the advice. I will now purchase the Schraders instead. Does anyone have a link to where I can buy them? I have a ebay account if needed I just want to make sure I buy the correct ones.

In the thread I mentioned (and linked to earlier - http://300mclub.org/forums/viewtopic.ph ... 9&start=15), there are two references. One is to ordering Schrader from Advance Auto with online codes. Also, this link was given to Schraders on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss? ... ader+20028.

If you do a little homework on this site, you can probably find most everything you need to know without even needing to ask. Good luck!

You should also be able to get them from RockAuto.com and use a 5% discount code available in the RockAuto code thread here. If you go with AAP, be sure to look for discount codes. I always check RetailMeNot.com for various codes offer a percentage off the price, or free shipping, etc.
