I don't know of any tire sensors that you would lose by going with aftermarket.  As far as I know nothing is specific to the rims or tires.  Don't quote me on that though.

Well I have been driving around and have had no rubbing problems at all. Also the Tek seems to handle much better now with the wider tires. I don't feel that floating "boat like" feeling that it used to have.

The actual MPH off is 1.6 to fast

When I am going 60 MPH, I am actually travelling at 61.6 or basically less than 2 mph over. Being in Southern California I have never seen or personally been pulled over for that small of an increase. The way people drive here I am sure 1.6 mph is not going to get me a ticket.. If it does, I will be shocked!

So for now I am enjoying the new rims and tires.. The Tek really turns some heads now, especially with the new stereo..\\\

Now to just keep them clean....

Down side..

  Your also racking up miles on the ODO that much faster also. :cry:

Might want to keep track of that if the time coes to sell or have work done on your Tek.

If he is showing 60 on the speedo and is actually going 61.6, he is saving miles on the odo.  (about 2.7 percent from his numbers)  Sure this won't make much of a short term difference, but it is saving him milage on the odo.  Larger diameter tires will also reduce his gearing a bit causing a hair slower 0-60 time.

Hey,
 The tire sensors are part of the wheel bearing assembly. No affect on replacing rims.

"The actual MPH off is 1.6 to fast"

He is doing 60 and his speedo is showing "61.6" if I am reading into this correctly.. Thus I was correct..

i have an 04 rally I went to the local tire store, looking for upgrades in wheels and tires, I was told that the 17" wheels and fortera tires are vehicle specific, for the aztek, envoy, and new bonneville because of an off set.  I was told that around the end of april there will be new technology in tires and wheels from top manufacturing companies.
