Winter Wheels - but new Juke has TPMS

Post by red-juke » Sun Nov 13, 2016 4:56 pm

Hi there,

My wife has been very happy driving her 2010 Juke on Winter tyres and wheels for the last couple of years. We bought genuine Nissan wheels (same style as the original set) and fitted Winter tyres - fairly straightforward at the time.

Now, the old car has done just over 73K miles, so time to swap it for a newer model, and we've got a Nov 2014 (facelift) Juke in the pipeline.

But, my understanding is that TPMS was introduced in 2014, so I'm wondering if anyone knows for sure what I need to make our existing Winter wheels work with the new car. I assume I will need to buy 4 x TPMS sensors and have them fitted to the wheels. I see there are quite a few people selling sets on eBay, but I'm wondering if there's any "coding" needed to pair them up to the car, or do you just fit the Winter wheels and reset the TPMS in the car, and it self-discovers the sensors?

Has anyone done this? I did have a search on here and a Google around, it seems that some people just don't bother with the sensors, and drive around all winter with the TPMS warning light on - I'm not sure I really want to do that.

I suppose the "safest" option is to order a set of TPMS sensors from a Nissan dealer (once I have the VIN number of the new car), and if there's any problem, at least I can take the car in there for them to sort it out...

Hi
I have just done the same on one Juke last year and have just purchased some 18 inch Nismo wheels for my Nismo RS and am fitting them on Sunday
with a trip to the dealers on Monday to get them programed to the car.

You need to purchase 4 new TPMS sensors from Nissan you also need to order 4 nuts as these do not come with the sensors.

All this will come to around £200.00 including Vat.

When you have fitted your new wheels with the TPMS sensors on to the car you need to go back to Nissan to get them programmed on to the car.

This we be charged at approx £45 - £50 plus vat.
Once this has been done you can reset the TPMS and the light will go out and all will function correctly.

When you put the Summer wheels back on the car you should be ok as the old sensors should still be remembered by the ECU.
That as what has happened to me and I have changed wheels twice now with no issues.
However I have heard some times the dealer removes the old sensors from the ECU in this case then a trip to the dealer and another £45-£50 charge
to re code is required every time you change wheels.

Another way is to just put winter tyres on your existing rims using the same sensors. You might need to buy 4 new valve seals these are £5.00 each plus vat from Nissan. Any tyre place will charge around £40-£50 to do this.
Another option is to buy some spare wheels fit winter tyres and normal valves and you will just have the TPMS light flashing on the dash.

Hope this makes sense.

Thanks John, that's what I will do. We're picking the new car up tomorrow, so I will order the TMPS sensors (and nuts) from our local Nissan dealer, and get them fitted on the winter wheel set.

Probably a bit late now, but I suspect you can actually get away without the TPMS - they only work when the wheel is rotating, so the system is set up to ignore wheels if the tpms isn't transmitting. Depends on whether you are bothered for the tpms being in operation on your winter wheels.

One of those hidden costs though - I believe the tpms batteries have a useful life of 5 years and the batteries aren't replaceable, so you have to replace the units. Have to say, £200 for 4 isn't bad at all - TPMS warehouse are quoting £72 inc vat each, pre-programmed.

On the first Juke I fitted winter wheels and tyres on with new TPMS valves on the TPMS light on the dash flashed on and off all the time.

I am having mine fitted on Friday so can re confirm that the dash light flashes, until my trip to the dealer on Monday morning.

I have all the nissan part numbers if any one requires them

Follow up question

If I "rotate" my wheels swapping front to back, diagonally, assuming the tyre pressures are set correctly will the TPMS system recognise the valves correctly ?

I assume that they will be OK but wondered.

Yes it will find all 4 sensors.
In my handbook for my Auto Nismo RS to change front to rear every 3000 miles but not swapping diagonally just front to back on the same side.

Hi

Can anyone who has had tyres changed on a facelift Juke with TPMS answer a quick question ?

I've had 19.5K miles out if my front tyres and they are down to 2.5 - 3mm and I want to replace them fairly soon.
I think I might give Avon a whizz, as recommended by actd but wonder about the valves.
Is it the valves that are "special" and if so do the tyre changers retain those valves and re-use them with the new tyres ??
