Does anyone else have some American Outlaw wheels on their vehicle? Did you have to put them on with regular valve stems? and not use your tire pressure sensors? I am in the process of having the Outlaw Buckshots I won it the competition from Discount Tire put on and they say that the valve stems on the sensors don't have long enough threads. So I either mount the tires with no sensors or don't sue the wheels. Hmm, anyone know a solution? Any way to turn off the tire warning light?

What do you mean a smaller tube? The tire sensors don't have long enough threads to fit through the wheel.

Still not fiollowing you. Smaller chunk of pipe? Is there a stem that acts as an extension?

They are referring to the thread where the person took pvc pipe with a valve stem installed.
Then you put the TPM sensors inside the tube and glue pvc caps on and seal it all up tight.
Let it dry the proper amount of time and air up the tube to like 35psi and keep this tube in the cab of the truck, like under the seat or where ever.
Sensors happy, truck happy, no dash light on.

Well you would think they would know what they are doing there . . . .

^-- Just what I was eluding to.

Like I said NCFronty, I'd consult DTD on this, maybe they had to use some special spacer or whatever to install the factory TPMS on those rims?

Let us know what you figure out.

FOund out in 2 seconds on mine own why they didn't work. They broke my first one, so they tried a new one. Well....the new one's nut has the threads start further up into the nut (see pic) Hence the reason it was not grabbing the thread, or the tech thought the stem was not long enough!!

Wow! I knew something wasn't adding up. The Nissan Dealership should have the correct rebuild kit for your sensors so I would go back and have those sensors put in.

Yes, I went back down there. They are being totally cool. They ordered a new "nut" and will do the work later this week or next. The sensor they got from parts was with the new nut style. He ordered one of each of the 2 nuts that came up as parts possibilities when ordering just in case. The ironic thing is, my tire sensor lights have never come on.:comphead:

The tire shop I used when I swaped on the colts said mine were seized and explained that they might break, buddy was cool enough to show me what he meant and I said just go for it....snap goes the tpms whatevere I can live without it. If for some reason they dont fit on the buckshots and you get them off in one piece throw them in the spare tire to trick the system. Beats having a pipe bomb riding in your truck.
