TPMS seals or new stems when reinstalling?
 
I have read and read but unable to get a clear answer. I am switching wheels, and moving my TPMS sensors to the new wheels. Do I need to buy a set of valve stems or just a set of seals when I have them installed in the new wheels?

The parts are on me to get, just want to make sure that I am getting the right thing.

Everything I needed came off of my stock wheels.

I'm 50/50 on just reusing what is on there now. Current stems only have 30,000mi, so it's very tempting.

All wheel/tire shops have the necessary rebuild parts for the tpms. Just take your wheels/tires to a shop and they will handle the tpms. It's not much, 5-10 bucks for the parts they replace. I think it's a law or something, they have to install new seals.

I guess I'll grab new stems for them to put on, but that delays my tire changing until Thursday afternoon since I went with chrome stems and they have to be shipped :sad::LOL:

I just bought new wheels for my truck and they came with new chrome valve stems but not the type that need to be used with the TPMS. Where did you get your stems JHemi1?

I ended up not getting chrome ones. The part number on O'Reilly's website (http://www.oreillyauto.com/site/c/de...2317&ppt=C0337) shows chrome

but black rubber came in when we ordered them. I just went with the black rubber stems, you really can't see much of them anyway, so it looks ok with the chrome clad wheels.
