I have an 06 RRS with the TPMS. I just got offered some MY2010 Supercharged 20's with stock MY2010 TPMS sensors installed for cheap. Will the sensors in the new wheels be recognized by my 06?

Nope, the 2010 sensors will not work with a 06-09.

for the hell of it, i called the local dealer and asked the same question. SA thought it might be in a different frequency, put me on hold, then came back and said they should be the same. please don't take that as authoritative and verify on your own before deciding to purchase.

Tell you what, I'll mount the new wheels and see if the sensors work. if they don't, I'll pay for you to send yours to me for the swap.

I appreciate it!

Dave I'm saving you the hassle of mounting them up. Your car is going to throw a fault the same way mine did when I put 2006-2009 sensors on my wheels. FYI I have a 2010 RRS HSE. After finally getting the 2010 sensors the fault went away after a short 10minute drive...

I wonder if they are backwards compatible? your 2010 might not recognize the 06-09 sensors but the 06-09 cars might recognize the 2010 sensors?

Either way, I sold my old set already, so I guess I'll have to have you send your old ones to me and I'll send you the new ones.

Deal?

They sure look identical... But indeed, they aren't compatible across model years. Part #s are different and parts suppliers such as bputah.com list them separate for 06-09 and 10+. :(

2006-2009 sensors:


2010+ sensors:


PS: There is a set of sensors currently for sale in the For Sale / Wanted forum, should anyone be looking for a spare set for a MY2010.

Thanks for the pics Umbertob. Just received a set of TPMS sensors for my 2010 and they (fortunatley) look just like the bottom pic and the FoMoCo type matches. Good job bputah!

what are these sensors about? I keep hearing about it.
What is it exactly?
Tire
Pressure
Monitoring
System

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tire-press ... ing_system

A Tire-pressure monitoring system (TPMS) is an electronic system designed to monitor the air pressure inside all the pneumatic tires on automobiles, aeroplane undercarriage, straddle-lift carriers, forklifts and other vehicles. The system is also sometimes referred to as a tire-pressure indication system (TPIS). These systems report real-time tire-pressure information to the driver of the vehicle, either via a gauge, a pictogram display, or a simple low-pressure warning light.

So if I change the rims on the Range it affects taht TPMS?
where is that TPMS located?
Its inside the wheel and tire. The valve stem on your wheel is part of the sensor. If you get wheels you either have to buy another set or take them out of your stock wheels. Its really not a big deal.

is it easy to remove and place from the stock rims to the new ones?
what happens if I don't put it on the new rims?

They aren't hard to remove at all they just scew on.

If you don't install sensors you'll get an idiot light on your dash that says you have a flat tire.
