TPMS rebuild with new tires? Needed or Scam?
I am getting rid of my Cooper Zeon LTZs tomorrow. One has a huge bolt through it and another has a small hole in the sidewall. Getting two replaced so I am gonna swap them all out since they ride loud as hell on the highway. I am considering 265/60/R18 Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revos. I want something a little smaller and more highway freindly and they look like they will fill the bill without looking too wussy. These coopers look awesome, but they are loud and they drop my fuel economy by 4 mpg.
Anyway, Discount wants to charge $60 to rebuild the TPMS sensors with the new tires. Apparently they just started doing this. They act like it is mandatory. I think that sounds like a big pile of crap. Nothing is wrong with them and they are not ever touched so why should they go bad? This sounds like a scam to me. Anyone else have experience with this.
