    Default Aftermarket Rims/Tires and PSI Sensors?

    How hard is it to put the sensors on new rims and tire off of the stock ones? I have an 07 silverado, and just thought of that.

    They are very easy to change. Keep in mind the PCM knows the location of each sensor so if you change that location you have to tell the PCM that you did so. On late vehicles this can be done without a scanner but no so with older vehicles. Check your owners manual as it will tell you how to reprogram them.

    Here's a picture of a sensor:

    when you go to install them make sure to get a rebuild seal kit for them or they will leak
