    For you boys having problems with your TPMS not fitting wheels.. I put some new rims on the wifes Scion XB and the TMPS would not work on them. I took a piece of ABS and glued a cap on one end and a threaded cap on the other end, I taped the one end cap with a bicycle fill valve, threw all the sensors in the tube and presurized it to 40psi and threw it in the trunk. No problems, No light! There is more than one way to skin a cat.

    I can see this being a problem if you ever have your car searched like at an airport and they find this pipe bomb like device.:eek:
