TPMS sensors. Life?
I still have the original functioning TPMS sensors on the 2009. I figure it has got to be near the end of the battery life. How many years are most people getting out of the original OEM units?
I'm also close to needing a third set of tires for this vehicle which now has about 85,000 miles on it, so this would be the time to get new TPMS sensors. I buy my tires online and use an independent garage to mount and balance them. Since I have a full size spare, I will be getting 5 sensors. It looks like I can buy the Denso 550-0103 sensors for $25 each plus shipping from an online E-Bay seller. Any thoughts on those?
