So I have a slow leak in 2 of my tires. I took it to the dealership and come to find out 3 of the TPMS sensors are leaking. They ordered 4 new ones and are installing Wednesday.

Just wondering if anyone else has had this issue.

I never had a problem with mine but I have heard that you should use a kit when you remove and reinstall them (if you've had your off). The kit is cheap compaired to the cost of the TPMS. Maybe that would take care of the leak.
Make sure you purchase TPMS rebuild kits. (should only be a few dollars each).

The rebuild kits replace a few rubber grommets, the valve cap and the valve core. These parts need to be replaced anytime you move
your TPMS sensors from one wheel to another. It is also recommended to install the TPMS rebuild kits anytime you replace your tires.

Rebuild kits are p/n SB-20032 and are available at: http://www.alltiresupply.com/p-SB-20032.html

Just tried to put Mopar TPMS's in four Weld wheels. They won't fit. Not sure what to try next.

Yes, I have one that is a slow leaker. It is on my snow tire rim (OEM 18"). It has a tiny longitudinal crack in the aluminum stem itself. The crack is big enough to lose about 5 psi per week.

I repaired it with a little epoxy, but don't know how long it will hold up (my snow tires are off now). I'll likely have to buy a new one.

The TPMS's I purchased for the snow tires are the exact ones that came with my car and are installed on the same type rims my car came with.
