Where did you order the wheel and how much was it?Nicholas said:Just received my 17 X 7 Alloy wheel and the TPMS valve today to mount a full size spare in the trunk. Waitting for information about the cost of the Michlein LTX M/S tire from a local tire dealer and should have it all together by the middle of next week at the latest.
Where did you get this info? Is it in the owner's manual? I've read it a couple times, but I didn't see this in there. I just bought a set of take-offs to be used as full size spares. If they need to have the TPMS sensors disabled before we can use them I need to figure out how to do that.Kodiak said:The TPMS system is not designed with a 5 channel receiver. The system will be confused if an additional wheel is installed transmitting a signal. Depending on the orientation of the wheel, the rear receivers may miss-interpret the reading from a spare wheel with a TPMS transmitter stored in the rear trunk.
A service part wheel should be used for the full size spare without a TPMS sensor installed. The dealer should be able to help you locate the necessary parts and install the wheel for you.
