Tpms

Found a nail in the sidewall of my tire. I took it to a tire dealer and they would not patch it, said it needed to be replaced. I thanked them and left. I need to find a shop that can patch the tire. Some shops will yada yada yada and try to sell you new tires. I had a sidewall patched years ago and it held up fine. I just need to find a place that will patch it. I dont know much about TPMS. Does a sensor need to replaced if the tire is patched or do they just re-use the one I have? Is it an OEM part or can I just go to Autozone and buy one if needed?

nothing will need to be done with it unless your removing it from the rim to another rim.

Good luck finding a place that will do a sidewall. Never seen a place that would touch one especially after that whole Firestone/Explorer disaster. No reputable shop will do it.

The shop I work at won't patch sidewalls nor will any shop I know. The patch may look fine when they do it, but as soon as the tire is aired up and a load is put on it, the tire will stretch and the patch will rip right off. After that your lucky if the plug stays in the hole. As for TPMS sensors, all they do is measure air pressure and report those pressures to the computer. If pressure is to low, your light comes on. TPMS sensors only need to be replaced when the batteries die (7 years, give or take) or if they somehow get broken. Hope this helped.

No way in hell would I patch a sidewall and run that on my vehicle.

Your last tire with a sidewall patch may have lasted just fine as you said and certainly there is a chance that the damage to this tire would not cause any long term problem.

Then again there is a good chance that it might fail catastrophically while doing 70 with a truckload of family and friends.

It might be ok to use as a spare as long as one remembers that spare has a sidewall patch and then only uses it in an emergency at low speed just long enough to get to the nearest repair shop.

Of course it's your call.

I guess I will have to lower the spare from underneath the truck and see if that will suffice as a permanent replacement or if its a truck donut made for 50 miles..........

What is the difference between a flat from a hole in the tread area and flat from the sidewall when you are driving. Would one of them tend to be catastrophically My tire still has air in it along with the nail.

The main reason most tire shops won't do a sidewall repair, is the failure rate of the repair is rather high, due to sidewall flex. In your case since it's just a nail and not a cut, you could probably get by with having a tube put in the tire with a patch on the nail hole (good luck finding shop to do it), no TPMS on that wheel with a tube. Your spare is a full size mounted on a plain wheel with no TPMS sensor.

Sidewalls are not as thick and don't have steel belts protecting them like the face of a tire. They also have to deal with side loads when turning and constantly compress and stretch with every tire revolution.

As someone that drives around on public roads, don't try to hack this...do the right thing. If not for your safety, for the safety of other drivers.

I wonder if my tires came with road hazard warranty?
These tires are originals with 14k on them.

Get out your owners manual packet and look at it. There should be a tire brochure there.
