TPMS System

Hello all,

I just purchased a 2011 Ford Ranger and it's my first vehicle with TPMS.

I have a set of 16x7 5 spoke rims I want to put on my 2011, right now there are 15" alloys on it.

I've heard the sensor and bands can be hard to get off without messing them up so I would like to keep those tires mounted to the rims.

Can anyone recommend a cost effective solution to keep the TPMS System and make it work on my 16x7 rims?

Does anyone have an experience with aftermarket sensors? Or Factory sensors?

If it were me, I'd see if it can be disabled. I never dealt with Ford TPMS, but I bought OEM summer wheels and tires for him and had the dealer program sensors in them to the car. It was only 50 bucks and it had the light go off which was nice

I've heard the universals can be a pain to program if you end up with having to get new ones. Most that I've seen broken has been where the filler mounts to the sensor. If you're careful enough, you should be some what okay.

There is some sort of mod where you can put the sensors in tubes or something and keep them in the trunk and it'll keep your light off.. allowing you to run whatever rims you want. My brother was looking into it for his Nissan car.
