Info needed for TPMS on 07 GT/CS

Let me know if my knowledge is correct please. The tire pressure management system obviously detects changes in tire pressure and alerts you when it is low. I just recently found out that the TPMS is located around the inside of the rim. I busted my rim a few months back and bought a new duplicate rim. So, this means that the new rim/tire is not being monitored. How would I go about putting the TPMS sensor onto the new rim and make it work as inexpensive as possible? Also, does it still work if I put new tires on?

If it was a from-factory stock replacement rim it should come with all the equipment the original wheel had. Whether it is hooked up or not is a different story, and some aftermarket wheels have them as options and some don't, but you should be able to buy replacement systems or sensors if new wheels does not already have them installed, and it should be relatively inexpensive, since it is just the sensors and not the entire system. The sensors measure the pressure in the tires, and should not be affected when tires are changed if they are generally of the same specifications (i.e., as long as the tire does not physically interfere with the sensor).

If you need to buy a mounting kit. The dealer charges an arm and a leg for a band. I work at a dealer and it's even too expensive at my discount. I bought a set from eBay and works great. They also sell individual bands.

not sure this is clear from the previous replies:

you should be able to take the old sensor out of the old wheel/tire -- first remove the tire from the wheel ; you will see the "band" wrapped around the wheel in the middle ; I am not sure exactly how it attaches, but there should be some screws or something; so remove it

then you have to remove the tire from the new wheel and install the band in the new wheel -- same as above only backwards

I am assuming you still have the old wheel, and that the band/sensor inside was not damaged -- if that is not the case, then you will need to buy a new compatible sensor; you can get them from the dealer or from e-bay, just make sure it is compatible with your car

A tire shop should be able to remove and remount tires on the wheels with the sensor installed, but it's probably a good idea to warn them that it is in there

Oh, I did not know that -- yeah, sucks big time since he is in Afghanistan

In that case, I think you can get the stem mounted style sensor, that is compatible with the 07 car? But it will need to be "synched" to the car, maybe you can get the tool for that, over here in the US you can have a dealer do it, but not sure over there
