Should I get the TPS sensors?

I am buying new wheels and tires. Question, should I get the TPS sensors for the tires? If I don't can I use a superchips to turn off the system? This can save me $200 for the 5 new rims and tires.

Thanks

I saved the $200 when I bought my wheels. I'm just living with the dummy light until I get a programer.

You can use the superchips to set the threshold to zero. If you've already got the flashpaq, save your money for another mod.

Save the cash! Once you go wheeling you will air down anyways and the light will just come back on...

Pass on the sensors not worth the money. You wont even notice the light staying on after a while. Just expect passengers to tell u that u have a low tire

Or you can use your old ones in the new rims if you still have them. I'd pass if that wasn't an option.

FUCK the sensors,get yourself a PROCAL 149 bucks and be done with it!
real jeepers don't need a computer to tell them how much air is in their tires.
real jeepers check their shit.

A) Why would you need to buy another set if you have any? They transfer in all of about 30 seconds a wheel to the new ones. Anyone that says different is full of crap!

B) Toss the sensors, they suck. But A still concerns me

I thought that was the case. I wanted to make sure I can turn that feature off with the programmer. I appreciate the feedback.
