In advance, I tried searching to find a good answer, but was unable to.
I've just ordered my new Lift&UCAs. I was about to pull the trigger on a new set of tires and wheels (DuraTracs and ProComp 8089s) from 4wheelparts.com. Then it occurred to me that they will be mounted/balanced and shipped ready to go, but with no TPMS (I have to assume).
So, I'm wondering what others have done when ordering online. I know I can just ignore the TPMS light, but I'd really rather just convert it over so that it's functional. However, if 4WP is going to doing all of the work, is it going to be all for not if I have to bring it to a local shop to install the sensors? Basically, will they have to take off the tire and redo the balancing that I'm already paying 4WP for?
I have considered just buying the tires from a local shop (they've said they'll match online prices with shipping included), but after looking at wheel options, I'm a bit hesitant. At this point, I'm tempted to order the wheels I want and have them shipped to the shop for mounting/balancing. I plan to go there anyway for my alignment. It just seems pretty complicated and I was liking the idea of Installing the Lift and wheels/tires all at once and then driving down to have the alignment done.
Any suggestions or facts that I've simply overlooked?
Thanks in advance.
