Aftermarket rims and pressure sensors
How about some feedback on successfully changing the sensors to aftermarket rims. I have a 2007 Chevrolet extended cab. When the factory Generals wore out (20K) I went to new tires on Cadillac rims, stayed with 17's, and when the Michelins on them wore out, to 18" aftermarket rims and noisy Nitto's. The tire place I bought the Michelins would not change the sensors from rim to rims, so now and then I do without. I have a new set of tires and want to put the sensors in the 18" aftermarket's. Anyone have any success with this? Do the sensors have batteries that go bad in them?

Change my without any problems. Took the sensors off my 18" stock rims and had Discount Tire put them on the 20" aftermarket rims. No problems, no issues. Those sensors are expensive! One of them did go bad on me, had nothing to do with the change b/c they were on my aftermarkets for 2 plus years, just went kaput. Anyway, $70 bucks to replace new. If you don't end up swapping them, then you might consider selling them.

I haven't done it, but I was told that it's not always successful to swap from one wheel to the next. TireRack.com sells them in sets for about $160, though, aftermarket.Kevin Singleton '09 Z71 - PA ZRT - kevindsingleton.com
