    Default Tire Pressure Monitoring Sensor question

    Hey guys (and gals), just a quick question about TPMS. I have a 2007 NBS Silverado 4x4. It has the aluminum rims from a 2006 on it, not the rims from '07 models. When I bought the truck 2 years ago, I didn't like the stock chrome wheels they had on it, so they put some aluminum wheels from another truck on it. Now, I am wanting to put TPMSs in the tires so that the TPMS will work but the local dealership is telling me that the sensors that are made to fit the '06 rim won't work with the '07 computer in my truck and that the '07 sensors that will work with my computer won't fit on the '06 rims.

    Any truth to this?

    Thanks,

    Mike

    If you buy replacement TPMS sensors for an 07 they should fit on the rim. a tpms sensor is simply a valve stem with a sensor on the other end. It has a battery in it the communicates via wireless signal to a TPMS module. They also have complete kits to add tpms to a vehicle that doesn't have it. Here is a reading that might help you.

    Have you checked a local tire shop or aftermarket wheel dealer that does this on a routine basis, they might have a better answer.
