Hey all, first time poster here. Just signed up for this forum and it looks like it's full of great information. I have owned nothing but Chevys since I started driving (1991) except for a Dodge Ram from 1998-2004 (great truck too, BTW - never had any problems and it was an SLT 4x4 Quad Cab. The 4WD wasn't for show and that truck took a beating. I dumped it off at 166,000 miles at an auction, someone got a great truck) and will forever remain a Chevy driver.
Just had a new son born on Saturday (3 kids now) so we are going to be upgrading the crew cab to a Suburban. I am trying to keep the truck however and not sell it, it has been good to us.
I have a question and I am not sure if I read this thread right. I have a 2007 Silverado crew cab LS that has the TPMS and just bought the 20" OEM 5 spoke chrome wheels. However, they aren't equipped with the TPMS. It looks like I can swap the sensors from my stock 17" tires into these 20" though.
I have tried to locate this valve kit listed above but cannot, and I also do not know who the manufacturer is on the sensors currently on the truck (haven't received the 20"s yet so the 17"s are still on) . I called the dealer and of course they want me to buy 4 new entire sensor kits at $75 each and when I asked if the manufacturer was Dorman they played dumb or sincerely didn't know.
My question is can I buy these and swap them out:
If not, should I buy these:
Any and all help would be appreciated. Thank you!
