Reporting back. The Scorpions have been pretty good on wet pavement, slush, horrible ice, and a few inches of snow. We've had less than normal snowfall this year so I don’t have any experience driving in deep snow with them. Dry pavement is the problem...while ride and handling are fine, they make an ungodly amount of road noise. I was hoping they be quieter after they'd been broken in a bit, but after ~700 miles, no change. I wouldn't recommend them due to the noise alone.

Most shops are reluctant to pull TPMSs from one wheel and put them in another as they can easily break. New OEM sensors are about $60 a set off ebay.

There is no reprograming required. The Jeep will discover and remember the news sensors with a few miles of driving.
My WK2 is a 2011.

My WK2 is a 2011. Think that will work? If switching the TPMS sensors over is that big of a deal I'll likely just pass on these. The Bridgestone Dueler RHS tires aren't my top choice. Just thought for $300 bucks for five basically new tires, plus those wheels with the TPMS sensors already I'd take them.

My number one priority is I want a QUIET TIRE. looking for suggestions and advise on your experiences !
Another good option is the Continental TerrainContact or Grabber ATP. Both have similar, less aggressive tread patterns, but do well for USDA roads or light terrain.

Those newer JL wheels sensors won’t work in a 2011.

Darn! Appreciate the info. Looked like the same part number for the 2019 JL and the 2011 WK2, so I was hoping I'd get lucky.

Oops, never mind. Actually just confirmed with Tire Rack that the 2019 JL Wrangler TPMS sensors and the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee TPMS sensors are exactly the same part and will work on either vehicle!

Interesting, I thought 2011 WK2s used 56029398AB or the 68241067AB sensors where 2016 - 2019s used 68252493AB or 68313387AB. Maybe I was mistaken about the JL. They are all 433Mhz sensors but otherwise not compatible.

According to the response from Tire Rack the 2011 Grand Cherokee and the 2019 JL both use Manufacturer Part #: 56029398AB so if I want to swap those over it should work fine. Hopefully that is all legit (and this information helps someone else out too.)

Frustrating that Jeep doesn't have more consistency across systems, but I do understand the later WK2 model years offer more information, so I'm assuming that is why the different part number is required.

Well never mind. Did my detective work and called the seller back and suddenly the wheels don't actually have TPMS sensors any more. Sigh... Back to square one.

Yeah, my bad.... looks like parts books says one sensor fits late model Grand Cherokees, Compass, Renegade, where the other fits early Grand Cherokees and all year Wranglers.

2012 Grand Cherokee wheel fitment

Hello Jeepers I see there is a fitment fourm but I cant find anything on if 18x9 wheels with -12 offset wrapped in 255/70/18 will fit on my jeep with a 2.5 Rough Country lift I have a feeling I'd have rubbing with these?

A -12 offset pushes the wheel out 3 inches from OEM, beyond the fender.

Dunno, there are photos around here somewhere of something similar.
