TPMS Sensor Replacement

I will be replacing the tires on my Outlook once again very soon. Since it is 8 years old I'm going to replace the original TPMS sensors before the batteries die.
Any recomendations for replacements or should I just stick with GM/AC Delco?
Thanks,
Tim C

Re: TPMS Sensor Replacement

The life expectancy for the sensor batteries is 10 years. I'm concerned that the batteries will die before the next time I need tires and will have to pay for mounting and balancing to have them replaced.

Re: TPMS Sensor Replacement

Just had the tire$ replaced on my 2008 and the service folks (Costco) said mine were shot and I had been getting wonky notices on them so I had them replace them when I had the tires mounted. I might have been able to stretch it out a bit and they told me that but I felt it was better to get them done while getting the tires rather than having them fail in a year and having to go through having them changed later.

I believe they were about $45 each so after the $70 rebate for the new tires I figured I was only paying about $110 for the new sensors.

Re: TPMS Sensor Replacement

Thanks for the info. I am going to do the same thing. Did they stock the sensors? Just curious if tire shops keep them in stock just like they would regular valve stems.

Re: TPMS Sensor Replacement

Ill post my tire change info.
Back in June----got my Versados replaced with new Versados.
These worked out great. they have a 50,000 mile warranty. Im at 60,000 and still had another good 5,000 miles left.

They were down to 5/32. I was not at the wear bars yet.
I had a 4000 mile trip July.. may as well have new tires on.

Also had them put in the TPMS sensors I got on ebay (New Car take off's)

Versados- 4x. ($161.70)..........$646.80
Computer balance 4x. ($10).....$40
------------------------------------
$686.80
CA 9% tax.............................$58.20
-------------------------------------
Out the door price on tires....... $745




TPMS sensors on my Traverse- these were the factory originals with 111,308 miles on them- now 7 yrs old... never an issue with them.
But age wise-- time to replace while the tires are off the rim.

TPMS sensor R/R $5 each....................$20

GM TPMS sensors on ebay.......$53 (for all 4)


$818- total for new tires and TPMS sensors.




The TPMS sensors I bought on ebay.
they are new car takeoffs- according to the seller that sells many of them.
These are GM parts- not aftermarket.
For $53...... sure-- Ill take them.

6100 miles later---- no issues with the replacements.
