I have an 09 Dodge 2500.
My friend is selling his 18x9.5 American Racing Wheels. I like the styling and they were on the same truck as mine, just a few years ealier model but both 3/4 ton 4x4s. He has them going for a decent price, way cheaper than new ones and in great shape.
1st question is there a negative to going with an 18" wheel compared to another size? I have only had 15x10s in the past for 35s on another truck, not real familiar with the new available sizes and pros/cons, I plan on going with 33s and have a leveling kit, would like 35s but don't want to lift it, so I think I can only go 33s. Are 33" tires for 18s excessively expensive or anything like that??
2nd question is my truck has the TPMS Tire Pressure Monitoring. Do I need to take the old sensors out from the stock wheels to get this to work with the new wheels?? And if I run the new wheels/tires at 40-50psi will that constantly set off the sensor compared to the 65psi they run at now? I have the cancel out switch but would rather not have to cancel it everytime I start to drive.
Can I get new sensors so I can sell my stock wheels and tires together, only 11k miles on them, or are the sensors super expensive? It would probably be around $100 just to get the sensors removed from all four of the stock tires and mounted when I get tires for the 18s.
Thanks for the help
