    Can I use the tpms out of my stock steel rims 16" and put them on 17'' alloy sport wheels?

    Thanks

    The sensors have different mounting angles. The shop will either try to flip them 180 degrees, or they could use tpms straps...

    what kind of straps are you referring too? Is this something any tire place should be aware of - Kramer Tire, Firestone, etc?

    Thanks for the link.

    Kramer Tire just told me they wouldn't do it because I could crush the sensor if I get a flat. Still looks like a better solution than paying $100+ per sensor.
