Re: Just ordered wheels/tires. What do I do about the TPMS?
Your at a loss any way you skin it.
If you order the new tpms sensors, you will have to take the truck to ford so they can mate the new sensors to your truck, they will charge you for this.
If you take the existing sensors out of your stock wheels and mount them in your new wheels it will work, but you will have to pay somebody to do a dismount/mount/balance to get the tires in working order again.
Walmart, won't touch alot of the aftermarket wheels. If you have a smooth lip similar to a stock profile they will do the job, but most wheels these days have some kind of step or radical lip and walmart (at least the ones around here) will tell you that they can't do the job because they will scratch the wheels.
I brought my new wheels to walmart for a mount, they rung me up at $11 per wheel, and said it would take an hr.
After 10 minutes they told me they couldn't do the job because of the profile of the wheel. I had to take them over to schwab who charged me $99 for the mount/balance. I also had to listen to them bitch because I bought wheels online instead of through them.
Sold my 07 3500 Cummins to get out of a truck payment.
Purchased a 2000 f250 PSD 4x4 CC LWB XLT with leather seats and 70k miles. Very happy with the new/old truck. SCT SF3. DIY Donaldson air filter BHF. ZooDad. New Greesable xrf ball joints/tie rods/inner axle seals.
