TPMS Sensors Available at Tire Rack

Thursday, August 1, 2013 by Zig Ziegler

Since tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) haven't been around long as standard equipment on new vehicles, most drivers have never dealt with having to service or replace them until recently. Whether you're replacing an old faulty tire pressure monitor or purchasing a new set for a Tire & Wheel Package, we have TPMS senors for almost any vehicle.

The most common question regarding TPMS is: "When I buy new wheels and tires, do I need to purchase new TPMS sensors?" The answer isn't always easy, however different options are available. In most cases, it's actually less expensive to buy the TPMS senors from us with your new wheels and tires. A benefit of ordering a Tire & Wheel Package is our free Hunter Road Force Balance. When you receive your new tire and wheel set-up, they can be bolted right onto the vehicle.

Typically, customers that choose not to buy new TPMS sensors move their existing senors from their old wheels to the new. In this case, we often ship the wheel and tire unmounted and the customer will pay a shop to dismount the old wheel and tire to get the TPMS sensor installed in their new wheels and then mount and balance the tires to the wheel. Typically, once you add up the labor to move your existing sensors to your new wheels and tires, it costs about the same as buying new sensors.

TPMS as standard equipment on new vehicles has certainly made drivers more aware of their air pressure and roadways safer in the process. Studies have shown that running tires with too little air pressure is not uncommon. It's been estimated that about one out of every four vehicles on the road is running on underinflated tires. This also means that one out of every four drivers is needlessly sacrificing their vehicle's fuel economy and handling, as well as reducing their tires' durability and treadlife.

Tires aren't invincible. They are made of individual layers of fabric and steel encased in rubber. If a tire is allowed to run low on air pressure, the rubber is forced to stretch beyond the elastic limits of the fabric and steel reinforcing cords. When this happens, the bond between the various materials can weaken. If this is allowed to continue, it will eventually break the bonds between the various materials and cause the tire to fail. Even if the tire doesn't fail immediately, once a tire is weakened, it won't heal after being reinflated to the proper pressure. So if a tire has been allowed to run nearly flat for a period of time, the tire should be replaced, not simply repaired or reinflated.

Shop by vehicle to find your dream set of wheels, and if you're purchasing a set with a black finish, don't forget the optional black TPMS valve parts.

My data shows the 2013 Volkswagen Jetta uses ABS based TPMS so there would not be any sensors for you to purchase. Here is a link which will help explain the difference between Direct TPMS (Monitors in the wheel) and Indirect TPMS (ABS based):

Told TPMS sensor in one P235/55R18 MI LAT TOUR 99T tire bought from you 7/13/10 is inoperative. Cost to replace is $180. Better to buy a new tire w/TPMS? Thanks.

The TPMS sensor is a separate purchase from the tire. The TPMS sensor is connected to the bottom of the valve stem and can replaced and the old tire can be reinstalled on the wheel afterward.

If I buy new wheels, tires, and TPMS sensors from you, will the sensors have to be programmed by a shop or can I do that myself?
Wednesday, October 29, 2014 by Tire Rack Team:
Ty, what kind of vehicle is this for? Some vehicles can relearn the new sensors automatically, while others need to be programmed by the dealer. -- marshall@tirerack.com
