Buying new tires

So I'm buying new tires from AM in the next couple of days. I am buying the Charcoal AMR rims (20s). Wanted to know if there's something that I should prepare for or any tips on anything. I have heard that people are having problems with the sensor (Something about honking the horn?? Lol). Wanted to know what you guys know about that and if that's a common issue?

You need to have TPMS (tire pressure monitoring system) sensors put on the new rims or else you will throw a dash light. You can have AM install them for you for an extra $200 i believe, this also comes with the training remote and how to video. Or you can have a tire shop remove them from your old wheels and install on the new ones. You will probably have to pay extra labor and buy a rebuild kit for them. I chose to buy new ones, since I will be using the stock rims/tires for winter.
Pairing them is extremely easy it shows you step by step on the video. Takes 60 seconds. But yes there will be a series of horn honks.

Call discount tire. I believe they sell them. Cant find a link directly to it, but whenever you order tires from them they add it to your cart at the end. Honestly if you are buying a package deal from AM, your better off just buying new ones. By the time you pay someone to take the tires off the rims, install your tpms sensors, and then remount and balance them, your probably going to be spending more then the $200 you would from AM. Plus then you have a pairing remote for the future.
