How to install BMW TPMS

We thought that it would help out them members to go over the correct way to install TPMS in most aftermarket and OEM wheels. There will be slight differences if you have multi-piece or older wheels that are NOT TPMS friendly. They may require an adapter.

First you will need your new TPMS sensor and correct size valve stem.

You should have an extra washer and holder stick with them valve kit.

Attach Torx valve screw to base of sensor.

Insert valve stem into new wheel. Make sure it is a standard valve stem hole.

Add single washer.

Attach valve stem nut.

For BMW's BERU/HUF TPMS set torque tool to 35in/lbs.

Tighten to torque.

Most shops will have a TPMS testing tool to make sure the sensor is activated properly and ready to perform on your new set of wheels.

Done. We would like to thank the guys at ShopTPMS for the great pics. Post up any questions you have. Thanks
