    2011 GSA tire replacement question

    The owners manual says the TPS location is marked on the rim. I cannot find the mark. Anybody know how to locate the TPS?

    I also wondered if you can use dynabeads for balancing with a TPS system in the tire.

    Thanks,
    Ken

    Oops, please move to hexhead.

    Hey Ken,

    Moving to Hexheads...the TPS is part of the valve stem assy.



    There is a dyna bead question as well,

    Dyna Bead site says their product is safe for TPMS.

    Dynabeads and TPM

    I have been using Dynabeads on my '09 GS with TPM for the last three tire changes. No problems, TPM function continues normal operation, good wear characteristics on the tires.

    Thanks everybody. I will try the dynabeads when I change the tires next week. The Karoo rear tire just barely made 3500 miles on 80 % pavement. On to Tourance this time.

    Try Shinko E705. I get 7-8k on rear, 8-10 on front, and a pair costs $160 delivered. I always used Tourance, but the price of Shinko cannot be ignored.
