This might sound stupid, but does anyone know if my existing TPMS sensors can be swapped to new alloys? I’m going from current 16” to 17” (still standard Suzuki alloys) Car is 2018 and sensors still appear like new. Many thanks in advance.

I have swapped mine around when getting wheels painted etc.
Also I use 16" Winter Alloys and 17" OEM summer Alloys.
I believe they spark into life when the wheel is revolving and then learn for a while before displaying info on the dash.

Hmmm.. 4 deg driving home last night from work at 01:00am... think it's time to put the winter boots back on...

Yes you can change the TPMS sensors from your 16" to 17" wheels no problem, just ensure the tpms is torqued up correctly to ensure no leaks

Which 17" wheels are you changing to, I quite like the oe 16" alloys

Thanks for the replies, much appreciated! I’m getting a set of mitsi alloys, Karl - black alloys on a black car...

I went from 16 "to 18". And have the original TPMS put on it. Without any problem.

You can see the TPMS on this photo.

Those 18’s look well. Puts my mind at ease, as I really didn’t want to buy new sensors. Now to decide what tyres...😬

Tires is always a tricky choice, depends a bit on where you live and how the weather conditions are. I myself have chosen Vredestein Quatrac Pro Allseason in the size 245/45R18

Probably an all season. Do like the look of an all terrain, but undecided as to what make. Found the existing contis really good in minor off road conditions, despite the 2wd. Must be the traction control. Previous Qashqai would’ve been long since stuck!

Quick update - new alloys & tyres fitted with no problems, no leaks and no warning lights on. The tyre fitter remarked that the main thing was the O-ring/sealing ring on each sensor was in good condition. Fitted winter tyres in the end, they even seem quieter than the original despite having a more aggressive tread pattern.

Not me that's for sure.
I have only ever had Amber TPMS cautions on 2 occasions.
1) I changed a wheel and didn't follow the procedure, once i had re-established the tyre pressures correctly it all worked fine.
2) I got a Puncture in my tyre last July, a nail right in the centre of the tread. We were on our way out for a 4 day mini break, I thought the system was playing up , but no; it was working and detected what it was supposed to be detecting... a puncture !

For me the TPMS-system works fine. It has helped me once when I had a slow puncture. So that's not the reason for bypassing. The reason would be the cost that will come when I need eight* new TPMS-valves in some years.

*Acually twelve since I have summer- and two sets of winter-tyres.

Just found this on Ali-X  https://www.aliexpress.com/premium/tpms-suzuki-vitara.html?d=y&origin=y&catId=0&initiative_id=AS_20200312015009&SearchText=tpms%20suzuki%20vitara
They appear to be genuine with the same part number as Suzuki.
If genuine they are a very good buy, I paid Suzuki £222.00for a set of four several years ago.
I see in the customer reviews that G***N has bought a set, could this be "our" g green ?
