TPMS on the staggered 17" polished wheels
I have the staggered polished wheels on my 1SF, and from what I've seen looking around online, the only tire valves with TPMS are rubber stemmed ones.
Mine, which I have to assume are OEM, are metal.
Is the sensor a replaceable part? I'd be just fine with this, because I do not want rubber valve stems.

Re: TPMS on the staggered 17" polished wheels
mckellyb, No, the oem sensor is one unit, I have found these to leak on the o-ring that seals inside of rim. Some time tire shop fails to clean this area. The replacement at Discount tire have a chrome cover over the stem. These seem to seal very well. Danny
