pmustang Posted January 8, 2011 Report Share Posted January 8, 2011 Will try to make this as short as possible, in my head its a book. Okay, have a 2007 Shelby, Have bought 4 new rims (from a co recommended by a board member), Have bought (as kindly recommended here) the swap over bands to re-use my own sensors. I am going to have the tyres removed from the stock wheels and then take off the sensors from the stock wheels and then put them on the new rims (same size as old ones) and put them on the car, Easy so far. Okay, the problem, I have removed the rear pair of stock wheels to track the car with other wheels/tyres on. Now I don't know which wheel is for which side (the originals) in the rear. Not really dying to put them on to find out with the weather so crap. How sensitive are the sensors? Can I put the original wheels and tyres next to the ones currently bolted on the car and start the car and see if the sensor light comes on in the dash? or does it take driving the car or actually having them bolted on the car when driving for them to work/signal the dash light? The reason I ask is that I live in the UK and live in a rural setting and the car is very clean, if I take it on the road it will need a 2 hour wash before I can put it back for the winter. Any advice welcome. Just trying to get the right sensor on the right corner as I am informed that if you swap them side for side they will act as if the tyre is flat and throw the light on in the dash. thx.
