Make a pressure vessel using 4" PVC and sealed ends with a valve stem, put your old TPMS sensors in there, and inflate to proper tire pressure and reset the light. Keep this in the truck or use a metal tie to attach it to the frame under the truck or in the bed. It will keep the light off on the dash and you'll still have the sensors if you ever decide to use them.

You can also use a wheel barrel tire for this.

Search is your friend. There are a number of ways to turn off the idiot light including cutting power to the TMPS computer, or removing the LED from the display.

I disconnected my light , instead of installing a wheel under the rear or taping over the light. Search "Disabled my TPMS on my 2008" ,I have pics and instructions.

I do not, I didn't do it and still have all the sensors in my wheels. There was a write up a long time ago but I couldn't find it! You basically buy a short 4" or 6" PVC piece, 2 end caps and a standard tire fill valve. Drill one of the end caps for the valve, place the 4 sensors inside the PVC pipe, seal up both ends and put some air in the system. Then you reset the TPMS to that pressure and as long as it's in the truck, the light will stay off. You can do this with a wheel barrel tire also, just break the tire off the rim, put the sensors in the tire, remount and fill it up.

Another option is wheel straps. They strap the sensors to the center of the wheel and allow you to use standard valves to fill the tires. It's basically a big hose clamp that holes the sensor to the wheel. This allows the sensors to remain functional in the aftermarket wheels.

Just turn the sensor 180 when installing them on the new wheels. The only thing you have to be careful about is when installing new tires you'll have to drop the sensors into the tire before breaking the bead.

I know they will go in my new wheels. I'm just thinking my stock take offs will be worth more if i leave the TPMS in them. I ride motorcycles so i'm used to checking my tire pressure often and don't really se any point in having the monitors in my new wheels.
