Using other wheel dimensions with TPM-System

Hi Jeeper,

do you have experience on the use of the TPM with larger wheel dimensions?
Since I started using 265/65R18 tires stopped working my TPM. Thank you for
your answers.

°lllll°
Have fun out there!

Same thing for me when I put 17x8 Ultra Spline wheels on my GC- no spacers, but 35mm offset, so outer edge of wheel is almost 1" further out than stock. Good news is that while tire pressures don't update, there is no TPMS warning system light on.

The size of the wheel or the rubber has no effect on the TPMS system. Did you use the OEM TPMS sensors or get different ones? I've found that the aftermarket sensors don't always play nice with the system. The Dorman versions in particular are a pain.

I put Dorman direct replacements in mine, no issues at all. The TPMS light on the dash went out after about 15min of driving.

Should have been more specific. The lower frequency 315mHz(?) seem to be the problem. The newer 433 mHz units seem to be better,

I have 245/70-17s that are about 1" taller than stock and with the OE sensors the TPMS works perfectly.
