    Build a TPMS pressure tank. ie. PVC tube with a valve stem. Works great!

    I broke the bead on my spare tire and stuck all my tire sensors into the spare tire and then air'd it back up to 35 psi.

    That works, but if you ever need the spare to use as an actual spare, you will destroy 4 sensors. Make a pressureised PVC container for them.

    They are taped on the wheel. Even if they did get loose, when the tire spins they get pushed onto the outside and roll along just fine due to the momentum and air pressure.

    did ya keep the original sensors and are they servicable? if so you can do what majority of people mentioned build a pressure chamber outta PCV and install it under truck. or take light bulb out?

    Question Re: air pressure sensors

    Just wondering, but can you reset the TPMS to accept zero PSI. I know some guy's have aired there tires down slightly, then reset the computer at the lower psi, then air the tires back up to normal PSI. Just an idea

    y cant the pressure sensors be used in aftermarket tires? if you can remove them from the stock tires and put them into a custom pressure chamber, y couldent you epoxy them into your aftermarket rims and rebalance your tires? or put a counter weight on the other side?

    You can, depending on which wheels you have. You can also buy replacement for other types of wheels.
