Default Disable TPMS

Hi everyone Iím new to the KK and bought one on the weekend looking for a new toy. Iíve previously had a TJ JK Rubicon a KJ and a JKU sport.

Iíve purchased a 2011 Limited V6 and already want to mod it. Itís tyres need replacing and one of the tyre pressure sensors isnít working.
Iím thinking of going down to 16Ē rims as tyres are cheaper with better availability choice and price. I donít care for the TPMS really so was thinking of just disarming them rather than replacing the sensors.

Whatís the easiest way to do this? On my 2014 JKU I changed the wheels over and as the new ones didnít have the pressure sensors fitted the system just diactivated itself. Can anyone confirm if this will work on the KK?

The guys that are replacing their rims with 16 17Ē are you installing the sensors into your new wheels?

I swapped the sensors over to the new wheels. Had to replace the stems though.

I seen some new general grabbers on gumtree in the 255/60/18
Seems like it might be easier to stick with the 18s and just replace the one sensor

I replaced the wheels and tyres. Simply transferred the sensors over.
FWIW I've had 3 occasions where the sensors have saved my butt.
I wouldn't travel without them.

I took the sensors out and changed the stems to rubber in my steel wheels. I also keep spare rubber TPMS stems in my tyre 'bush repair' kit with the plugs and patches, and compressor.

The Jeep KK TPMS isn't so bad for lowering pressures in the bush. It chimes once after starting the car, turns on the yellow Tyre Warning light, and on my Limited, displays the tyre pressures in the Info text display. (Which is great, cause it tells me if my Sturm deflators are not set right!) After that, you can change the info display back to default, and there's no constant beeping. Just the yellow tyre pressure warning light reminding you that your tyres are 'low'. But I have found I need to pump them back up to over 2.2 Bar and drive for a little bit for the yellow warning light to go out. Then I can let them back down to 1.9Bar and everyone is happy. But I have to go over 2.2Bar to get the warning light to go out.

So just to update how I went, Iíve ended up buying 4 brand new General grabber ATs in 255 55 18 after I found a really good deal. This size is the same rolling diameter as the stockers so wonít cause any issues with the stock high. Although Iím still getting a lift soon 🤣
The TPMS sensor problem was resolved when I swapped the spare rim onto the car so all warnings and beeps are now gone. Car drives well and canít wait to take it off-road soon.
