Tire pressure sensors - new to me rims

Postby Joe Smith - September 8th, 2019, 10:44 am

Have a 2011 Escape and got a good set of rims. They have the sensors with the metal bands. I want to put new sensors in so the system will work with the winter Nokian Hakka's on it.
OK to cut the metal bands off and replace the old sensors with new - non banded sensors?
If so, what is one of the better models to use?

For the 2012 I used the Continental sensors. VDO SE10001HP REDI-Sensor. So far so good from December 2016. Should be able to find a set of 4 at a good price on Amazon or elsewhere.

This model has the metal stem. They also offer a less expensive rubber stem model which is speed limited to 110mph? Would probably be just fine.
