Default Whete to buy TPMS Sensors?

I am about to get a second set of wheels and want to know the cheapest place to get a set of TPMS sensors. The cheapest I can find is $170 and I don't want to pay that. I have read a ton of threads on the TPMS and only can find people going to the tire rack which is expensive.

i just the hell with it & went to Discount Tire, also called American Tire
on ebay they are cheaper, but then you have to get them installed & activated

you can also pull yours out & put them on the new wheels

What do you mean activated? I can't just buy a set online and get them installed? I found a set on eBay that I thought about picking up.

Do yourself a favor & do not buy UNIVERSAL sensors or no name sensors from Ebay. There is a lot of garbage in the market place & they can cause intermitant TPMS lights. Stick with Schrader (which makes the OE sensor) Dorman or VDO. Yes, once you get new sensors they will need to be initialized with a tool such as the Bartec, Atec or factory tool.

Are those sensors for your specific application? Dodge used three different sensors for the Dodge Ram from 2009 to 2012. If they are not for year make & model they will not work.

I have no idea lol. I have a 12 CC sport with the Sport 20's. so how can I find the correct number I need? This small stuff aggravates the Sh*t out of me. If these wont work can anyone find a set that's cheap that will work?

Anyone else have any input? I don't want to pay that much for sensors if I have a choice.
