I bought a set of Z06 rims and tires.  I put them on my vet and my
service tire pressure system comes on. And my readout on the dash
are blank. But when I put my orginals rims and tires back in it
displays the correct pressure. What can I do to solve this issue?

when you change rims... with TPMS sensors... or rotate your tires.. or reinflate your tires...

you have to reset the TPMS with a special tool at each wheel.... its an RF tool..

so the car knows the individual id code of the sensor...   like bluetooth..   if it did not know..  you could be talking on your bluetooth and it coming out of the guy standing next to you cell phone...

here is an article from vetteweb.. on this site...

one more thing...  some manufacturers have had trouble with the valve stems breaking off...   there are aftermarket brands and OEM supplier brands available at some tire stores...  an OEM supplier supplies parts to the manufacturer..


let me know if you need more...
