    TPMS Question

    So with the tpms system that bmw wheels come with now days, is there some counterweight on the other side of the wheel to offset the weight of the tpms sensor? So if you change your wheels and transfer the sensors onto the new wheels, will you need to add a counterbalance on the other side of the wheel from the sensor to balance it?

    No. they only weight a few ounces. Tire balancing during installation will take care of it.

    Exactly and some aftermarket wheels include TPMS hardware.
