2013 Rubi Wheels on a 2009? (TPMS)

Anyone know if the new design 2013 Rubicon wheels are backward compatible with my 2009 TPMS? I'm needing new tires and I might just go for a full set off of Craigs List.

I'm wondering the opposite. Have a set of AEV wheels and older TPMS sensors that I want to put on my 2013. I'm hoping I don't have to buy 5 new sensors. Any one know?

Just use your 2009 TPMS modules on the new wheels....

Maybe, but would need to pay to have them switched out and then the old wheel set will be less valuable without them. Googling around, it seems the 2013 TPMS has a new part number & different freq.

So I would think the older ones will not work in a 2013 then?

Common sense would tell you that. I have a set of wheels with TPMS sensors in them from a pre 2013. It would be nice to not have to buy another set of sensors and re mount and ball tires and wheels. I will just mont them and see what happens. If I have get a new set of sensors for them so be it. I will report back with my findings.

I traded my 2010 jk in on a 2013 and had the dealer swap my aftermarket wheels/tires from the 2010 (with 2010 sensors) with the stock 2013 wheels/tires with the 2013 sensors. (So to be clear, now I have 2010 sensors on my 2013 and the dealer has my 2010 with 2013 sensors.) Neither TPMS works with the wrong year sensors now, if that makes sense. I'll have to buy new sensors for the 2013 when I upgrade to larger tires. The dealer was going to charge me like $500 to break down all 10 wheels and tires to swap the sensors and they said they couldn't promise that the sensors wouldn't get broken when the tried removing them. Hope that helps.

Schrader makes most of the tpms systems and they switched frequencies in 2013. http://www.schraderinternational.com..._11-13-12.ashx


You can use the catalogs and cross reference places to get part numbers. For switching the sensors use service kit 20018 (2.54 @ sams club) DO NOT PAY THE $29 at the dealer for each one.

I had all of my sensors taken out of my old wheels, and put in the new wheels with all 10 wheels mounted and balanced for under $30 at my local sams club.

Yeah, they obviously just didn't want to mess with it. It's a pretty busy dealership. I think the actually were hoping that each system would "learn" the new sensors, not knowing they weren't compatible.

Well, while my 2013 is under warranty, I'm going to have them work on it so I don't have any voided warranty issues. From what I've read on here, Chrysler dealerships love to deny warranty issues. :P At least until I lift it, then it sounds like I'm screwed.
