TPMS from steelies to alloy wheels

Have an 09 altima with steelies.

If I buy aftermarket alloy wheels, will the TPMS from my steelies fit the new alloy wheels?

Any idea what angle the steelies are?


Thanks

There shouldn't be any fitment problem.. I worked at a Sears Auto Center for a short time and never had any problems transferring the sensors.. The shop may recommend that they be rebuilt because the seals on the sensors go bad often.

Transferring the sensors shouldnt be a problem at all. I swapped mine from my steelies to my new wheels. Like Dubya said, where ever you go, most likely they will make you purchase the service packets to replace the seals on the sensor. I work at Costco in the Tire Shop and we REQUIRE you to replace the seals on the sensor when swappin them to new wheels. Just like all gaskets, once you break the seal, it never seals the same again so its just a safety precaution. Luckily, through Costco, our seals for our tpms are only $1.91/wheel lol.

P.S. Some wheels will clearly state on the website that they are not TPMS compatible so that may be somethin to look for also.

Today, most aftermarket shops manufacture parts according to the exact fitment note as described in the case of OEM. I am trying the aftermarket parts for last two years and up to date, I never had any complaints against any of the part regarding the fitment in the vehicle. So I think aftermarket is also best solutions for buying the parts and you should try it once. When it comes to Alloy wheels, then I must say that many aftermarket shops provide information on the fitment notes of that particular part in your vehicle, so you need not to worry about the fitment.
