Tiring Mounting & Balancing with TPMS - July 15, 2009, 08:41 PM

Does anyone know of a place that can mount tires to 18 in rims with TPMS? A lot of shops are trying to charge me outrageous prices saying it's difficult to mount and balance such a large rim with TPMS. I went to a lot of smaller shops but all of them can't mount anything bigger than 17 inches or don't know how to transfer the TPMS.

Thanks

Any place can do it. But they will charge you an additional fee for TPMS and possible an another fee for the size of your tires.

I would have to agree but then I see a soccer mom in her old expedition with 3 of the four tires way too low. Completely clueless and then wonders why she flipped her suv in a turn. Blames it on the tires and the manufacture of the vehicle.

The first vehicle I heard to have a tpms was the vette. Owners would complain that they would get a flat and not know it and ruin a rim.
