    Any one have a source for a good deal on the newer TPMS for the wheels, got an aftermarket set coming in the next week or 2 so would be good to find a deal and have everything ready for install. Or has a model/part number that I could do searches for myself?

    Tirerack has them for $65 each.

    If you run more than one set of wheels for your Tesla. you might consider getting the Autel universal 433Mz sensors for $23 each on Amazon. You would also need to buy the Autel hand held tool for about $132 to program them for the use on a Tesla. (The same Autel hand held can identify "dead battery" sensors. Last summer, I had 3 out 4 TMPS sensors that went dead only 18 months after buying them. Apparently, they were fitted with a crappy batch of Chinese batteries. Without the Autel hand held, I would have gone a little crazy trying to swap out wheels, one at a time, with a wheel from a set with good sensors, trying to find that one suspected dead sensor....)

    TPMS.com carries both Huff and VDO for around $50 IIRC. Stock part number for x-reference is 1034602-00-A

    I bought ITM branded TPMS for $35 each from seller megaautoparts on eBay. No problems with them on my winter wheels.

    Nice tip I will do some research on these, the idea of tracking a dead battery is a nice option!

    Do you have a link to the listing by chance?
