    TPMS sensors - what would you do?

    Hey, so I just recently put 26's on my Escalade and they did not come with TPMS sensors, therefore now I get the annoying message every time I start the car "service tire pressure system" (or whatever, something like that). I wouldn't mind having the sensors, but the ridiculous cost of them (plus installation) is just too much (literally going to be between $300-500). Does anyone have any ideas? What would you do? Just go without sensors and live with the error message? Can I disable the message or disable the whole TPMS system? I've even looked at getting some used sensors (maybe $60-80) but still looking at around $200 just to install them. Someone else has got to have gone through this. Let me know your thoughts, thanks!

    I got my 26's by trading a guy for my stocks (he had just bought the truck and it was for his wife so he didn't want the 26's). Even if I still had my stocks it would be $25 per wheel to uninstall them, and $25 per wheel to install them, plus the fee to program them to my truck. So well over $200.

    There is a thread here on how to reprogram yourself. I think the manual explains it too. Not too sure on the latter

    Most places don't charge anything to program them. I know NTB doesn't.

    If the older Escalades are like the other older models, all you need is the key fob and a STRONG magnet.

    I have purchased hundreds of tps sensors on ebay for $50-$100 for a set of 4 of them for our wheel company, I would get the sensors, they are even more important with larger wheels.

    Like hcvone says, on eBay for cheap and have them installed. I had a set of these out on my 24s and they work great. Discount tire does the programming for me during the swaps for free.

    Thanks guys! I appreciate all the help. I live in Seattle and I am not sure on the part number, I was told the traditional "valve stem" units would work for me. Here is a link to my wheels http://www.carid.com/borghini-wheels...e-1223032.html
