PostSubject: TPMS question   28th January 2017, 07:53

Hi,

I am about to swap my turbofans for JCW split rim Ronals in black Smile

Before I go ahead can someone confirm what system the Mini uses please?

Does the valve have the TPMS unit integral so each corner is coded to the sensor or does it operate a rolling circumference calculation (done by the abs sensor) as with an old BMW I had.

The reason I ask is if the sensor is in the wheel and valve it will need to be demounted very carefully and I will have to wait until my trusted tyre fitter is available..... if no actual sensor is in the wheel then I will go locally today.

Many thanks to anyone who knows in advance.

Smile

(sept 2011 r60)

Our 2013 Countryman just uses the abs sensor system as do all Gen2's as far as I know and TPMS is on Gen3's.
