Re: Off Road 18"s

The Prado system sounds crazy.... if he has his story right.

Re: Off Road 18"s

That's what I thought. He was adamant that it wouldn't work without knowing the location of each tyre. I knew I was right but he had me second-guessing myself for a second there.

Cheers all.

Re: Off Road 18"s

Nah, in the Jeep there is a sensor receiver located near each wheel arch. So it knows the TPMS signal it receives is for that wheel.

This sounds like a lot of work/design. This would cost more than a regular system with a single receiver and seperate codes for each TPMS. It is unusual for Jeep to spend more money in the design.

Has anyone done a wheel swap to confirm that the pressure information stays with the body location rather than the wheel location ?

Re: Off Road 18"s

Better than that, I've seen the sensors above/behind the rear wheel arches.

I've also just smashed on four new TPMS into new wheels and immediately had the pressures follow.

Cheers,
Steve

I was about to say I had done a full rotation including a spare with a sensor, but then realized, while they all work fine, I didn't change any of the pressures to see if it showed up on the correct wheel. Almost as good though, is that I have slightly lower pressures in the front, and that's where they show up. Having said all that, from all I've read and seen, I'm sure that there is no need to identify individual sensors - else what the one on my spare have to be?

Thanks Steve, you've answered a question for me. I have Jeep OEM wheels with TPMSs on my trailer so that I can rotate them with the car and carry fewer spares. I wondered if they would be picked up but apparently not if there are no sensors on the trailer. It's no big deal but good to know.

I can't believe that Prado TPMSs are positional. That would make tyre rotations quite impractical. I'm sure the guy has it wrong.

I've done a number of rotations on the Jeep with no issues. However, it takes a bit of time to pick up a new wheel and the wheel has to be spinning.

Re: Off Road 18"s

My guess is that this TPMS system the tyre guy experienced on the Prado was some aftermarket rubbish. Either cheap eBay crap or overpriced dealer fitted garbage.

Re: Off Road 18"s

I can see a post or two about the Maxxis Big horns. Does anyone have any picks or feedback on them?

Re: Off Road 18"s

Based on other fitments, I reckon you'd want to be running them as a second set of shoes mate. They're pretty noisy when new, and head towards atrocious if allowed to wear badly. Plan on frequent rotation to keep the wear related noise half manageable.

Cheers,
Steve

Interesting observation Steve. I hadn't realized just how much difference wear makes to road noise. My BFG's started out a bit noisy at low speeds, which I think I said back on this thread somewhere. But having now done a bit under 20,000km, and about a third worn, the noise up to about 65kph is loud enough to make me wish I'd kept the khumos on an mother set of rims. They're not noticeably worn in any way unevenly, but were somewhat better after a wheel rotation. They are chopped about a bit by the Kimberley roads though. After a six wheel rotation, I have new tyres on the rear, so it seems the fronts are the culprits. Interestingly, I have had a number of sets on my Landcruiser, and never noticed the noise at all.

Do they scrub at all? Got quoted $309 a tyre fitted for them.
Was using them as a dedicated 4wd tyre. Originally I was looking at the BF AT tyre but thought if I am not really using them on the road much as I have my road tyres, that I could go something a little more aggressive.
