    JKU tpms

    I purchased a set of used 17" wheels that do not have TPMS. I'm searching online for a set and it seems like the prices are all over the place from $50-$250. I obviously don't want to put a set in and only to find they don't work after having the tires mounted and balanced but I also don't want to buy the $250 ones if a cheaper set will work.

    Anyone have any input on where I can pick up 5 that will work with a 2015 JKU? Do I need to check serial numbers or something???

    Thanks in advance for any help on this!!

    Call the dealer ask for part numbers and then check amazon and eBay. I just did this for my truck dealer wanted $280 I got em for $120 online

    I think 2017s use the ones that have 433Mhz transmission frequency

    They are the 433 Mhz. I bought mine off eBay. Pretty cheap less then a 100$, But I also learned there are two different size valve stems.

    This was the number on my 2014. I think they are the same. Got them on Amazon.

    JKU tpms

    I actually went with the ARB TPMS system. My jk did not come with the tire pressure read out. Just the dash light. I used my procal to turn off the OEM tpms and then installed the ARB TPMS. I can set the pressure warning at what ever value I choose. When we air down for week long trips, I drop it to 15. On the way home I reset it to 28. Itís nice knowing the accurate pressure at any moment.

    JKU tpms

    I happen happen to be in a process of swapping wheels now, for about 3 fíing months now. I have one TPM out, hereís the number off of my 2014. I am sure itís the same part number for many years and models. You can buy TPM ready valve stems from Discount Tire or any other tire shop, make sure to get the screw on type. About $7 a pop.

    If itís possible to install TPMs without interference with the rim, I donít see a reason not to swap them into new wheels.

    Here amazon search for that part number

    I ran one Jeep with no TPMS, and used the Procal to zero the system. The other I put them in the aftermarket wheels. Iíd run them, personally. Iím generation X, so most of my life I didnít have TPMS. Itís nice to let the computer check your tires, though.

ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
