Yes, I think I've realised that now..... thanks for your help so far!

I've got a bit of time to research until my rims arrive, the current short list:

Cooper AT3 LT275/65R18
Mickey Thomson ATZ LT275/65R18 (not sure if these are still being made?)
Bridgestone D697 LT265/60R18 (a bit small! And expensive!)
WildPeak LT275/65R18 (Tread looks good, not sure about the side walls)
BFG LT265/65R18 (Meh!)
Nitto Terra Grapplers LT275/65R18 (Maybe)
General Grabber AT2 LT275/65R18 (yours look good!)

Sizes are per websites, but could be different options are available....

Re: 18" Wheels and AT Tyres

i was thinking about getting a set of 18s and put all terrains tyres on them for off roading and swapping back to the 20s for the road.


is it just a matter of getting a set of tpms eg
Dodge Chrysler TPMS Tire Pressure Sensors SET OF 4 Free Shipping | eBay

for the the new wheels ?

do i need to reprogram the computer to recognise the new tpms sensors everytime i swap wheels or would they just get recognised and read properly in the dash ? it would be a pain to have to goto the dealer everytime i swap wheels ?!

8. Perform one of the following to make the system learn the new sensor ID:
a. Use the TPM-RKE Analyzer, 9936, with the Scan Tool to program the WIN with the tire pressure sensor ID. This is part of the TPM Diagnostic Verification Test.
b. Once the vehicle has remained stationary for more than 20 minutes, drive vehicle for a minimum of 10 minutes while maintaining a continuous speed above 15 mph (24 km/h). During this time, the system will learn the new sensor ID. This is part of the TPM Diagnostic Verification Test.

Re: 18" Wheels and AT Tyres

If you are only going to use these 18inch rims for offroading and letting pressures down, you may decide it isn't worth installing sensors in them....

Oh I disagree. The sensors are valuable in both sets of my wheels. There's no fuss... swap rims and the TPMS pick up almost immediately.

Cheers,
Steve

Re: 18" Wheels and AT Tyres

the tyre pressure just gets recognised when you swap wheels ?

You missed option B

Yes Fireball. I think this information is early WK2 perhaps?

I'll reconfirm shortly... I'm due to refit my 20"s this week. That said, I'm certain that I had revised pressures within kays of fitting the newly assembled 18"s.

Cheers,
Steve
