Use old TPMS on New Wheels?
 
Title says it all. Can I use my old TPMS on my new wheels when they get here? I'm ordering some Mamba MR1X's and am trying to save a buck or two. Thanks!

Also, if anyone wants to buy my old Ronin II wheels PM me!! Cheeeeaaaap!

Thought so. Local tire place told my dad he couldn't use the same sensors when he got new snow tires. Told him it was bogus. Just wanna be prepared...

Not worth using old ones if they have more than 70k. They are not designed to last much longer than that, and the labor cost to put on new sensors after the new wheels and tires are mounted will be far more than if you just do it now. I had one bad one at 75k, put on new sensors with new tires shortly after that.

Agreed unless they were changed not too long ago.

Nope. Stock sensors that have been moved once from stock tires to revo 2's years ago. 63k miles or so on them. I'm looking at rock auto for sensors now. Didn't expect an additional $200 for sensors... Any recommendations? They always have good prices and selection. Not sure what the difference is between direct fir and multi-fit...

Direct fit. Had to replace one.

Had the wheels put on. They switched over the sensors without issue. Although after charging me for the rebuild kits for the sensors, mount/balance and black lug nuts it ended up being $300 just to switch some wheels. Ouch!

Hi Kayak83, I'm thinking of replacing the Ronin II wheels on my 2006 Grand Cherokee 5.7 with the same wheels you have. It's a 18" from a Jeep Wrangler.
I couldn't tell if my tpms fit very well on these wheels. How was your experience installing your tpms on these wheels?
Also, they both use 315Mhz sensors. Do you think they are interchangeable? I'm thinking of mounting a tire and driving around just to see if it works.

I sold the Jeep over a year ago. But from what I remember, the shop did a rebuild kit on the sensors to move them over to the new tires and there were no issues. I didn't do them myself.

I doubt the Jeep's computer would automatically learn the new sensors, though. I think they have to add them with a handheld programmer. You might need a tire shop's help after all.

It will relearn them. Takes 15 mins of driving or so but it will
