Important Tire Rotation Note. When rotating tires that are equipped with TPMS sensors, it is important to reuse the TPMS Transmitter Tool to recalibrate the sensors. By rotating your tires, you are changing the physical location of the sensors and your car's computer will need to update to be aware of this location change. Failure to do so will result in inaccurate and incorrect low tire pressure monitoring.

Installation Time: (approx) 1 Hour
Difficulty Level:Light to Moderate mechanical skill required.
I purchased the sensors along with rims and tires. After awhile I started getting the TMPS sensor going of then it would be ok, for a short while. I called AM and the customer service rep sent me a knew ... one. When I went to the Tire Barn, (local tire shop), the service tech had a digital tool and walked around the car. According to it, all sensors were working. So he removed the tire and the sensor had fallen off. Apparently the sensor completely cracked. I had removed the Shaker 500 and installed a Kenwood DDX773BH Receiver, A Data Link MAESTRO ADS-MRR INTERFACE Module and A DATA LINK CONNECT FACTORY INTEGRATION ADAPTER. This allows me to see a detailed graphs of the instruments on the car. I now have a picture of all four tires with their air pressures. A the kicker is on great stereo package that lets you adjust your music my better. Thanks to the Customer Service Rep for helping me out, WHOEVER HIS BOSS IS, HE SHOULD BE GIVEN A RAISE. Thanks for all the Help. American Muscle RULES!
It works! Easy to install, great price. What more is there to say.
Fitment with Saleen S281 20" wheels! I have 2010 Saleen S281 20" wheels installed on my mustang. Would this sensor fit the wheel? And can I install only one sensor and use the oem for the other wheels? The reason why i want to install it on one wheel only is i changed installed new tires recently and the guy who changed broke the sensor on one wheel.
It will work it replaces you rubber valve stem or your brocken tpms sensor.
If I purchase new tires and have them installed at a local shop along with these sensors, would that shop likely have the required Sensor Sync Tool already, or is this tool specific to these sensors?
The tool is specific not specific to these sensors, and most shops do have a sync tool, however, I would recommend speaking to your local shop and checking if they have a sync tool just to be sure.
Is it possible to reuse the factory sensors when installing new wheels?
Yes stock TPMS sensors can be interchangeable with our aftermarket wheels and tires as the valve stems are the same size.
Will the 2015 TPMS sensor work on a 2012 Mustang?
No, you want to make sure you get the correct TPMS sensors for your year mustang. For a 2012 mustang you will need the Valve Stem-Mounted TPMS Sensor (10-14 All) found here: http://www.americanmuscle.com/tpms-sensor-2010.html.
If I order my new wheels and tires and have them order already mounted and tire pressure added, how would I go about installing the TPS Senors? Or would they already be installed since I am ordering the tires already mounted and balanced and everything on the wheels?
Valve Stem-Mounted TPMS Sensor (10-14 All) has to be installed during the mounting and balancing process. If a wheel and tire are mounted and balanced, and one needed to install a TPMS sensor, then you would be forced to un-mount the wheels and tires, install the sensor, then re-mount the wheels and tires.
Hello, I currently have a 2008 Mustang and a 2013 Mustang that I would like to interchange the use of a set of wheels and tires. I currently have the band tpms sensor for the 2008 which I have just learned do not work with the 2013. I would like to have both versions mounted on the wheels at the same time so that I can use on both vehicles when needed (these are track tires). Will they interfere with each other? Will this work?
The TPMS Sensors use different frequencies, so there should not be any interference, however, since we have not tested this set-up, we would not be able to confirm this, I apologize.

These units have broken off the stem at high speeds while on a race track. (160 mph).

Very easy to program
These TPMS sensors had the shop guys asking what manufacturer they were. They said they've never had sensors respond to programming faster - the car was honking the horn before the handheld machine was beeping. Very impressed

I got these with a set of Cobra 10th Anniversary wheels and according to the installer the rubber was too tough to fit into the wheels. He had to remove the rubber portion and use their own so that they would fit right. I am not sure if it was the wheels or the rubber on these, but I think it was the rubber. If you are installing these on your own you might need a new part, if not then the shop doing it might be able to swap them out without issues. I did buy the TPMS transmitter and there wasn't any issues getting them to sync up with the car.

This product worked great.
Will recommend this product to all my friends. Glad I chose american muscle.

what not to buy
After it was installed and set, it fail to send sensor the tire pressure and then would not reset.

Great time saver!
If your looking for 2nd set of sensors for a summer tire/wheel combo, look no further! They work perfectly with the stock system. I had mine thrown on by tIres Plus and it was really cool how easy they sync to the 2012 Mustang. As the tech walks around the car horn sounds to let you know when its sync'd to the Tire monitor system.

I installed on rims before going to tire store
I bought rims and TPMS valve stem from A.M. I had tires mounted locally. I then used the A.M. TPMS transmitter tool on each wheel as prompted.

Quality TPMS Sensors
Got a set of these when I got new rims and tires. Seems like a quality sensor and cheaper than the OEM sensors. Haven't had any issues so far. I have the TPMS sync tool as well so I can sync the sensors to my mustang and is very straight forward.

Worked as expected, but two sets have failed in less than 6 months
Originally purchased a set of four with a set of wheels and tires, but the sensors failed within a handful of weeks, despite successfully re-syncing them to my Mustang multiple times. I've synced sensors on many Ford vehicles, so I know it wasn't the syncing methodology. A replacement set was sent to me, but the same thing ended up happening. After a couple months, one or more of the sensors yielded a "Tire Pressure Sensor Fault" randomly. It doesn't appear to be related to tire pressure, length of time since the sensors were last synced with the car, or outdoor temperature. Perhaps it's bad luck with the inventory, but sadly I'm not interested in spending an additional ~$100-$160 again to get the tires re-mounted and road force balanced with a new set of sensors. I haven't hit any potholes, curbed my wheels, or abused the tires in any way. However, I won't give the product 1 star, since they did work for a number of weeks. That said, at this price point, I would have expected the sensors to last at least a few years, similar to the OEM sensors.

a must have
These are a must have for your winter wheel exchange to keep that annoying dash light off they were easy to install in the garage at home.

Need new TP sensors? Get them!
I'd swapped out my wheels for another set with a broken set of pressure sensors so I had to get new ones. Not only were these priced fairly (like most other parts at AM), the chrome stems really look a lot better on my new rims than the stock, black rubber ones you usually see on wheels! Although the ad says the transmitter tool is required, I had (a major tire company) install my sensors and they were able to sync them with their own equipment. That said, I'd also gone to two other local places first who wouldn't even install them for me. If you're going to a local shop or think you'll need them when you rotate your tires, I'd go ahead and get the sync tool.

Great product, great service, I would like to see you carry the service kits. The sensors can be moved to another set of rims, but the rubber grommet should be changed.

If you get a wheel that won't beep, drive around the neighborhood a little bit to "wake up" all of your TPMS sensors. The deflate / wait / reflate method didn't work for me and is a pita.

These sensors do the job
Good quality.Nice chrome valve stem and cap. Had no problems syncing sensors to computer using Ford sync tool. Bought a set to go along with wheels purchased off of Ebay.

And looks great with chrome wheels!
The new TPMS sensors are a must - I ordered them with a new set of chrome wheels and with the chrome caps they look great. Be sure to get the transmitter tool so you can re-train the system in minutes and avoid a trip to the dealer.

The sensors were simple to install, it added a couple minutes for each wheel during tire mounting. The instructional DVD that comes with the sensors is so basic, you will be rolling in two minutes.
