Oh man that looks fantastic! Well done. Glad to hear they fit. Did you have any issues with the tire pressure monitors? Do they communicate with your jeep? I have heard that they changed the frequency in 2011. Thanks for your reply. I'll have to pick those wheels up!

Hey Flyboys after you put those tires on did you need to recalibrate your speedometer? Just curious.

The whole TPMS thing is bs, my shop said $6 a tire as long as everything goes perfect. If one breaks it's like $100 for a new one thru them. There is a member on here that sells them much cheaper tho.
And I agree with old smoke above, I don't need more dummy lights. I am able to take care of my tires without sensors. Would really like to b able to turn these off!

Thanks Flyboys. I'll have to recalibrate my speedometer like you did. And Bigdlensch, it's not about depending on the TPMS, it's about keeping options working if possible. Just cause I don't use my CD changer, doesn't mean I'm just going to ignore it. My thoughts.

I'm running the 255/70 18's with RC spacers- no rubbing at all (also 2" lift). Love the new tires, but I did notice a slight decrease in acceleration.

Looks good. The lift makes a big difference.

I just did bilstein 5100s and i cut the bolt. With air tools it;s not needed, and i am in the rust belt.
If you put an air gun on the nut and it just spins, the ball joint is done for anyway so you can just cut it off and repalce it

I just put 2013 Rubicon rims on, and i used the rubber stem sensors that came with the rims and they communicate? Well 3 outta 4 do. All 4 worked for 2-3 days, then the front passanger side started working when it wants too.

Is there a sensor in the spare tire? i have an 07 CRD, and it tells me what the pressure is in 4 tires, nothing about the spare?

Good to know, thanks I will cut it off then.

From what I understand as long as the JK rims are pre 2009 they are on 315MHz as of 2009 they went to 433MHz as for the WK "The TPM system operates on either a 315MHz radio frequency (2005-2007 Grand Cherokee) or a 433MHz frequency (2008-2009 Grand Cherokee)" from wkjeeps.com. So as long as you get wheels off the right year they should work.

Hey Redliner. My Jeep looks just like yours only I have the white letters to the outside. I am having a little bit of rubbing on the inside frame/fender area and just wondering what kind of RC spacers you are talking about. I guess I need them.

RC 1.5" spacers, I have ZERO rubbing.

Wrangler or Grand Cherokee?

Redlyner, are you talking about your TJ or GC? The Grand Cherokee photo I am looking at in your post does not appear to have 1.5" spacers. I have a set of those that I tried on my Grand Cherokee but they caused the tires to rub on the pinch weld and stick out a little too far. I would need to add rubber fender flares on my Jeep. I was thinking something like a 3/8" or 10mm spacer might fix me up but I don't know.

I do hate this two frequencies for the tire pressure sensors. I have a 07 and 08 and I wish I could swap tires between the two and keep the system working. I wonder how hard it would be to update to the 07 to 433MHz. The wife hates it when lights are up on the dash. I just ignore them.
Anyone running 275/70/18? I think that tire looks really good on these Jeeps.
