Gotta go Faster
Was just about to order a set of 19 x 9.5 drift wheels from Latemodelrestoration.com. Should I bother getting the TPMS kit if the set is mainly driving too, at and from, the track?

These really work, not an idiot light but readout of each wheel - pressure and temp.
Splatter said:Guys! thanks for the all the advice about 18 in wheels!! Down here in Chile the only real track/street tire I can get at a decent price is the Dunlop Dirreza ZII. Its a great tire but they dont come any wider then 285/30-18, two inches lower diameter then stock, that and the only size they will have in stock for the American muscle cars in Chile is 275/35-19. I get a hefty track discount as they are trying to introduce the dunlops here. That and the possibility of getting a 15in disc set has me sticking to 19in for now.
If I was in the US i would get 18 inch wheels !! The bonus is I have the only Boss 302 at the track!!

pufferfish said:They do not need kinetic energy to work. I have had a set of tpms in my canister all year and never needed to "shake them up".
I'm not sure how this rumor persists but there is nothing moving inside the sensors.Splatter said:Hmm, I though these things get their charge from the kinetics of spinning around in the tire?? How do they keep sending a signal if they are in a pressure jar??
