Changing rear tires... anything special about TPMS?


Recommended Posts

I was going to order my tires from Tire Rack and have my local shop do the mount and balance rather than go to the dealer for this. Then I started thinking/wondering about the TPMS. Is there anything "special" about having the tires changed that it can't be done by a local shop?

There are some instructions whats consurns the transmitters in the wheels, they are very fragile.

Let the air out the tyre.

Push down the tyre at the opposite side of the valve.

Remove the valve-transmitter unit.

Remove the tyre.

Place the new tyre in possition on the wheel.

Push down the new tyre on the valve possition.

Install the valve-transmitter unit.

Put air in the tyre 2.00 bar in the front, 2,50 bar in the rear.

Fit the wheel in the same possition as before on the car.

In normal circumstances, there should by no fault codes.

Regards.

Actually there is no need to remove the valve-transmitter unit. I would, howver, make sure the tyre shop is aware not to get tyre cement on the transmitter unit when fitting the tyre. Just ask them to take care, most shops are aware of the standard tpms precautions.

Had a couple to tyres done, never been a problem.

FWIW, I just replaced all 4 of my tires and was going to buy them from TireRack. I ended up buying them from Discount Tire Company (if you have them in your area). I saved about $200 (The S/H and cost of local dealer putting them). For $100 extra, you can buy a certificate covering all the tires that will get you a replacement tire for the legal life of the tire (tread life). Match right is usually $20/tire.

I went with Yokohama's new H-performance tire S-Drive - all numbers beat the dealer shipped Dunlops my boxster came with. They have been great for my everyday (aggressive) use so far;)
