New Tyres fitted- What to look out for?

Postby 06Megane » Tue Aug 19, 2008 7:15 am

Hi
I'm getting a new set of tyres fitted to my 06 Dynamique this weekend, what do I need to look out for as far as the tyres pressures sensors are concerned?

Normally they are fit new valves when replacing tyres, but aren't the sensors in the valves.

Any one give advice on this?


Thank you

I havent got the system myself, but i think that if you look at the valves on your wheels at the moment, there is a different coloured ring on each one. You need to make sure that the valves arent changed obviously and that they stay in the same position, i.e dont change wheels because this messes up the system.

Yes the valve is an integral part of the sensor so they cannot replace them, make sure they don't charge you for this!!!!

Have you checked out some of the online tyre website to see if you are getting a good deal on your tyres?
