Can you omit/delete the tpms? I think I`m gonna go for the aftermarket wheels after all but don`t want to pay an additional 224+ for the tp sensors. You would need to mate them to your system anyways...PR...

I have two sets one WO the light comes on off and on, No alarm. I put a spot of clay over the light and go. I leave the sensors on the wheels I use on the highway in the summer the most. My MB's. No way yet to omit, even a dealer can't bypass it. MC

i think you can reuse the tpms sensors on your new wheels. i think you just have to go to the dealer to reset the system. i haven't put the sensors into my new wheels yet, i'm used to the tpms light on though.

only thing is if I buy the wheels online, I have the tps`s still in the stock wheels/tires and don`t want to really seperate them.

is the light bright, and where is it on the dash?...Thanks...PR...

when the new wheels get there just take them out of your stock wheels and put them in the new ones when you get the tires mounted... yes you can swap them into the new wheels

Gotta be a way to just disconnect that light and the beeper. Unless that then throws a code!

Gotcha, that def makes for a whole different situation. The light's in the upper left corner... IMO it's not that bright, same as vdc, abs and all those others

it's actually really easy to access the gauges if you want to, pop off the surround, pull back the black plastic with the numbers and such on it, and then put a bit of electrical tape over the back where the light for the tire pressure would shine thru.

Ya know that might not be a bad idea, Did you do a how to tear up the dash Picture story dragonplayboy? Shame on ya!
The tape will work, My brother pulled the lamp and it does toss a code and still beeps. He had to measure the resistance of a installed lamp, match it and solder in a resistor of that value, naaaaa not me. But the tape sounds cool. Plus, I think the alarm is shared alarm so don't try that.

For the guy getting the new wheels, I might consider removing the sensors and sending them to the tire and wheel place to install in the wheels. Because, once you dismount, you jack up all the balance you paid for and I can just bet they have better maintained machines and more experience than a local shop. Just to get you thinking. If you do Insure them for $500, that is about what they are worth for 4. MC
