    I searched the forum and found conflicting answers in the amount of degrees needed for TPMS sensors for steel wheels and alloy wheels.

    (20 degrees for steel wheels & 40 degrees for alloy....?)

    Does anyone know what the correct answer is?

    Thanks guys.

    I'm not actually sure what you are talking about. But I have found that when the weather turns cold, that my TPMS sensor will usually go off and I have to put a couple extra pounds of air into my tires. So maybe when the temperature goes down a few degrees, then the TPMS sensor sees it as a loss of air?

    I believe the OP is talking about the sensor its self. And the degree at which it sits in on the wheel. :eek:

    OP: I believe you are correct in that the steel wheel sensors are 20 and the alloy sensors are 40.
