    No, but you'll need a strap kit or to program in new ones didn't know if you knew that. I believe discount sells the kit

    Different angle on the valve stem holes. You can try to flip them but everyone told me flipping them makes them more prone to breakage when you install or remove a tire from a rim. Don't know if that's true or not but I just made a pvc air chamber and put my TPMS sensors in it to bypass the light. I lived just fine before TPMS, it's nice to have but not absolutely needed.

    You can basically build a pressurized chamber and air it up to 30 PSI. They don't "work" - as in they don't monitor tire pressure anymore. The chamber is just so the annoing TPMS dash light stays off.

    There are alternatives, like the wheel strap kit that someone else mentioned. No experience with those. You can also pay like $125/pc for alloy-compatible sensors as well...

    If you build a chamber do not make it out of steel ( I did it and it would not pick them up through the metal ).
    If you use plastic make sure it is PVC sch. 40 at least. Do not use ABS it is not made for that kind of pressure needed.
    PM me and I can elaborate a bit. Worse thing is you get the light all the time if you don't put them in.
