tire pressure monitoring system and older subaru wheels
Im thinking about picking up a set up 16" legacy gt wheels, the "snowflake" ones. And somebody put a bug in my ear about it being possible that an older set of subaru wheels that weren't designed for the monitoring system would make it not work properly.
personally i dont think this is the case, b/c regardless of the shape of the wheel or when they were designed, the tire pressure monitors checks tire pressure and that is it. Not what its encased in.
I can understand that if i went to a larger wheel and a lower profile tire things would change a lot (i.e.tire pressure requirements and clearance issues) But in my case the only thing that is changing is the way the wheel looks, not the size. Heck im even using the same tire that I have on there now because they only have 3k miles on them
What do you guys think?
