$100?!?!?! They tried to tell me $80 for one, so I went to Amazon, got a set of FOUR for $35, the tool for $10, had them put one of the sensors in for $10, and then programmed them myself. Cost me $55+tax

Yeah they up charge the parts a little. No worries. I've been goin to the same shop for 25 years for all 5 of my cars. They treat me good. I'm not gonna worry about $45.

Ahhh I see. I try to minimize other hands on my truck as much as possible, if I can find a way to learn how to do it, better believe I'm gonna at least attempt it before I let someone else.

lol ... me 2. I do my own brakes, shocks, Struts etc.etc but sometimes I just say F*ck it. and let them do it. I don't have a tire machine, balancer. They're not gonna do it for free either.

Now you got me wanting to look up those machines online to see if I can get them. Getting this truck a couple years ago has slowly helped me build up a whole workshop’s worth of tools haha

Changing one out requires equipment that I don't have and I figure most others don't as well. I'm with Beater, for that I'll pay someone to do it. I just want the tool for the relearn after I rotate the tires or if I would have to ever get the sensors replaced. But I would have probably bought the actual sensor elsewhere to save a little.

True

When I had 4 snow tires done for my Mustang I gave the shop the 4 OEM tpms, the wheels and tires. They charged for just mounting and balancing .

When I had the one tpms go out on the Truck I was also getting a inspection so I was like ... just do it. It's good to use a shop that you trust. My kids have crashed several cars over the years and they ve saved my butt many times with towing and whatever. Quick call and they went and got them right away.

They even let me do burnouts in the parking lot right before they put on my new tires

Lol ... and no way. Not only that but it’s a stick. Most kids don’t know how to drive a stick today.
