I picked up a new set of 17" Pegs and realized I need valve stems (duh)...oh wait what about my stockers with OEM TPMS in them.<p>So, has anyone bought OEM TPMS sensors for a new set of rims?<br>If they don't cost an arm and a leg I would like to pick up a set of OEMs so the car stays happy. If I didnt have it factory, I would get the third eye setup.<p>How much would this probably run me? Does anyone know a good place that sells OEM stuff like this at a fair price?

Re: To TPMS or not to TPMS, that is the question. (stealthS60AWD)

John at Boston Volvo is good for OEM parts. <p>As for the sensors Volvo does sell a re-attach kit for moving the sensors from one wheel to another. However, the advice from the parts people has been to use new sensors when changing out wheels. The sensors will eventually go bad and need replacing.

What exaclty is your tpms you speak of? Is it just the alert on the dash that no one knows whether or not it is enbaled on their Rs or are you able to see real-time tire pressure for each tire?

It's only the little "oh crap" light when pressure is low. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0">
