Yes! That's another problem I need to consider.
So now there is a sensor on each tire, if I buy the tire from AM and then put them on my car, the original sensor will not work, that means, the tpms on my car will not work either.....I checked the owner's guide, but I can not understand it clearly...

I think I need to explain a little more.
Now my car is already equipped with tpms, and it says that there is a sensor on each of the tire. Now I can not see the sensors unless I remove the tires. If there is anything wrong with the tire pressure, the warning lamp will turn on.
So if I change the new tires, and on the new tires there is no sensor, or the sensor does not match the tpms on my car, the tpms will not work? Am I right?

I don't see why you couldn't drive without them. All they do is irritate me.

They're designed for people too lazy to check their tire pressure

The tire store who changed my stock wheels to aftermarket wheels took the sensors out of the stock wheels and put them in the aftermarket wheels. No charge. If that is the direction you want to go, prearrange the work with them. Don't let anyone sell you new sensors unless there is a definite need to. This advice came from the tire store I had do the work!

Keep in mind, it MIGHT be legal to not use them in your area. I just want you to check before you spend your whole budget, and then they tell you they can't let you leave without some over priced stuff.

So you might be good without, you have to check your local laws.

Haha man, Don't be irritating, everyone have his own opinion.
So you mean I can drive without the tpms?
To be honest, when it comes to my vehicle, I am not lazy~because I love it. If I have the tool, I will check the tire pressure once a week.
I think I need it only because I do not want the warning lamp turn ON all the time...
Also one friend told me that tpms is not useful....

They can usually be switched over but sometimes break if theyre not new. Only buy if needed.

Thank you! But if I change the tire and wheel, I think I need new sensor if I replace them by myself.

You could always put the new wheels on and later on when you have a little extra money take it to a tire shop and they usually can reprogram the tpms to work again.

That's also a good solution. I think I need to make a plan...

It would be pissed at me all the time. I run my rears at 28 for normal street driving.

Agreed if he can afford it, or if he could wait till he got the money saved up then not have to worry other than gettin them programed

I reused my stock tires so I had my dealer do it. Good thing too because they had to use the tirebuster at their Porsche shop because their standard one wouldve scratched my rims. If youve got painted 18" or larger wheels, be careful who you use.

So maybe I would consider to do this in a tire shop.... I know changing a wheel and a tire is not hard and it is a good skill to study, but it may come with other problems...

Haha , if I do not have enough money I will consider not to change the tire and wheel because security is first for a student like me....

So you means that the sensor now on my car may not fit the wheel from AM?
I think I will get 19" wheels.

Go to the place that would do the work for you and ask them if they can install without t p m s sensors. If they do it without, get a written quote including them writing that you do not need sensors, as in a price with and a price without.

If they will do it without them, then do not.get them and do it yourself. Since that place does not do it, it would be unlikely it is legally needed in the area. I say this because I didn't notice you confirming or denying the legality of them in your area.

Oh, make sure your quote is free at first, some auto places try to rip off individuals not native to the US.

Haha, thank you! You thought a lot about this.
I have already asked the Firestone here, that man told me that they could help replace the tires and wheels, remove the sensor on my old tire and then put them on the new tire, make the alignment, all included. It will cost about 70 dollars. It is not a quote but they answered me paciently.
I think they will not rip off me because my friend went there several times.
but maybe alrefire will be disappointing...maybe I will not replace the wheels by myself...
And, my friend drive away without the tpms...so here is not legally needed.

You might could ask them if they would care to show you how to change the wheels when you take your car, that way you can still learn how to.. I'm sure firestone wouldn't care to teach you

I would get the two quotes in writing, so if in the future say you run codes and you get it checked for emissions, r something crazy happens, you have a scape goat. BUT, i like to play better safe han sorry. If it doesn't seem to be needed in your area, then it sounds like you got your answer friend
