Where do you guys see it for $50? All I see is $100+ on ebay for set of 4.

I do all of my busniess with them so yeah they did it for me earlier this morning. All they said is "they didnt do it here" haha. And it works great the warning light went off and low tire pressure from the display.

My situation is odd. I have 4 new aftermarket wheels no TPMS just in spare and the TPMS warning has not gone off. The 4 stock wheels are in the garage where I park. Today I drove car to work and parked at work all day and no issues still ---odd.

How are the one's from tire rack coded to the vehicle?
Are you in GTA? were your rims and sensors both OEM? I have aftermarket rims and appreantly the OE sensors wont fit.

I bought a set of used set of OEM TPMS sensors for my aftermarket wheels. I took the sensors to Discount Tire to see if they could clone the new sensors to my current ones on my stock wheels. The guy scanned the new sensors and said that they were already programmed for my car.
