I searched, but I didnt see a thread with this question.

Do you run without the TPMS? I'm looking at two options for 20" wheels right now.

Both are after market Stock SRT8 style Chrome wheels.
Both will come with the same tires
Both are brand new
1 will not come with TPMS and I can save over 400 to get the ones without TPMS.

Is it bad to run without the TPMS for the summer? Will it void any warrantys or anything on my car?

Thank you.

It will usually have 100 people answer you if I say something and nobody had said anything in 5 min or so so that's why I answered even though you knew that.

For the $236, I would just buy the set of wheels/tires from tire rack with it installed because I'd barely save anythign to get them installed after

I think I'll just get them from TireRack, installed and everything, thanks guys

TPMS are the most hideous government required devices to come down the pike in a long time.

It is due to Americans who drive on flat tires and have no clue though, just sayin haha

I will say, as someone who's unnecessarily paranoid about driving on flat tires, it lets me rest a whole lot easier while driving-- aside from the headache they put most people through with regards to maintenance/install etc..

In the case of passing inspection, it seems states have varying rules regarding inspection and tire pressure, but I haven't found anything with regards to voiding the warranty.

TPMS

If the tires/wheels you are replacing the ORIGINALS with require the same psi ,use the tire sensors out of the factory wheels.You can purchase new tpms seal kits at dealer or most parts houses.

I am trying to avoid having them installed after the wheels and tires are mounted unless I can really make out on the deal. I think I'm just going to get the package from TireRack and pay the extra $200 to have them, I feel after some information and talking to other people about wheels, its better to just have it done right the first time

Every time you start your car you will hear a chime and the low tire light will stay on on the dash is all.

And they leak, and they are expensive to replace, and they are one more thing to dumb us down.

FWIW, you can get a full set of TPM sensors for your 2010 on fleabay for $70. The 2010 models use the rubber valve stem instead of the more expensive metal one. I bought a set off fleabay for $70 shipped to my door and they are the OEM factory sensors complete with valve stems, caps and the screws that secure the sensors to the valve stems. If you have a set of wheels with tires already mounted and balanced and then want to install the TPMS you will have to have them re-balanced, as the sensors are heavy enough to throw them out of balance.

Mine were replaced under warranty, but down the road I'm sure they will fail.
What a waste....

tpms

why dont yoy just transfer sensors from one set to the other , not very difficult to do . You would just have to reprogram your system not hard:redcap::fight:
