If I order these from Tire Rack without tire pressure monitors installed, will I have to deal with a permanent dash image constantly reminding me of no or low pressure, and/or a continuing beep or other error message? If so, is there a way to turn these off? Or will I be OK?

Thanks guys.

Just lights no sounds, it is ok. I am driving like this on my winter setup, no other issues. They are not accurate on Jeep anyway, many times flashed on highway in error on mine car.

You have the V-6 according to your profile, and therefore you do NOT have the HD brakes (those are V-8 only). 17" rims should fit. I went with 18" rims on mine just to be sure and I don't remember much (if any) price differential (even though there were more tire choices in the 17" size).

IMO, the TPMS sensors from TR are very reasonably priced; I went ahead and opted for them. Any amount you might save by getting them elsewhere would likely be eaten up in having them installed.

Re: wheels without TPS?

Techno - thanks. I have reached the same conclusions for the same reasons you mention. I intend to go with the 17" wheels because of the tire selection and also because taller tires always have seemed to work better for me in snow. I am actually considering going narrower than the 265s, perhaps 245s.

I've done business with Tire Rack for over 30 years now, so I guess I will probably trust them to do the whole package. Just wish they had a better selection of wheels. I'm fine with the OEMs, but dealers are ripoffs. Does anyone have a good (cheap) source for the original equipment - 17 and 18 in. - wheels?
