2018 JGC Altitude Rims on a 2015 JGC Limited

Hello all, I need some help. I bought a complete set of wheels and tires that came off of a 2018 JGC Altitude and installed them on my 2015 JGC Limited. Apparently the sensors on the Altitude rims aren’t compatible with my vehicle. I drove the vehicle at least 60 miles. Anyone know if there are any issues with replacing the sensors with compatible ones? I called the Jeep dealership and the service advisor didn’t appear to know what I was talking about but he said that he wasn’t sure if they’d fit. Please let me know. Thanks in advance.

They changed the sensor in 16' I believe. All you need to do is get a set of the correct sensors for 11-15 and swap them in and should be good to go.

Thanks WindyCity. Yeah, so I found the below link where it stated that they changed them for the 2016. So there shouldn’t be any issues with fitment?

No issues, the SRT wheels are a little different, but otherwise not a fitment issue. You should be able to get a set of four OEMs on ebay for less than $100 (the 2015 compatible part numbers are also listed at wk2jeeps). Or buy them from the tire shop, they probably would use programable ones which sometimes are flakey when used in a WK2.

Thanks ColdCase, I appreciate it. I was going to go the route of buying Mopar sensors and having them installed at my local Goodyear shop, however they don't install customer parts at all (called multiple shops to confirm). They wanted $145 per tire which included installing their aftermarket sensor, balance, and reprogram. I think this may be my best bet, as there aren't too many tire shops I trust around here. I'll get another quote from another dealer as well. Thanks again!

Don't know your location, but try and find a small tire shop they should have no problem installing your parts. That seems like a lot of money when sensors can be found for pretty cheap on ebay,etc...

Small shops here charge maybe $20 per tire if you provide the sensors. There are some shop chains that sell expensive $125 sensors, however. You can always just drive without the sensors and old school check tire pressure now and then. Are you still using the other wheels? If not you could try swapping sensors, but the shop may say they are too easy to break.

The Jeep will not need to be programed as it automatically detects new sensors.

My 2005 TPMS didn't work in my 2011. They have a differing MHz signal. 315 vs 433.

I have some new SRT knockoffs going on the front this week. Discount Tire will put my sensors in, I think. I actually did already. You can DIY, just need that tool and some dish soap to pull them in.

Thanks for the replies you guys, I appreciate it! I think I may buy the mopar sensors and take them to another shop. $145 per tire is a ton of money considering I only paid $400 for rims and tires. The tires only have circa 10k miles on them. Or trying to drop another $500 or so just to install sensors. Now to find some mopar sensors for the low. Thanks again everyone!
