Subaru WRX / WRX STI 2008, TPMS Sensor by Oro-Tek™, 1 Item. iORO TPMS sensors are a drop-in replacement for the OEM sensors. The two-piece sensor/stem design allows for easy maintenance as the stem can be replaced independently of the electronics. Because they're adjustable for angle, they'll install in virtually all wheels, factory or aftermarket. To ensure proper operation, 4 sensors (one per wheel) are required.
- Three sensors cover 90% of the vehicles on the road today
- Programs to your vehicle with exactly the same procedure your factory sensors would use
- Sensor is detachable from the valve stem; if only the stem is damaged, replacement is simple and inexpensive
- Angle of sensor to stem is adjustable to fit a wide variety of OEM and aftermarket wheels
- Operates with factory scan tool identical to OEM sensors
- Use new sensors for your winter wheels and tires instead of swapping sensors twice a year
- One year warranty for all sensors
Maintaining your tires at the correct tire pressure will make your tires last longer, improve your handling and braking, and save on gas. Keep your factory-installed federally-mandated tire-pressure-monitoring system working properly with these universal TPMS sensors from iORO. The factory sensors have a battery life of roughly 5 years or 75,000 miles, and are relatively easy to damage. These sensors will work exactly like your factory sensors, including reprogramming them to the individual corner of the car when they’re replaced or the tires are rotated. They’ll fit virtually all aftermarket wheels, because the angle of the sensor is adjustable relative to the valve stem so they’ll lie flat against the inside of the wheel. In addition, the valve stem on iORO sensors is a separate part, and can be replaced independently of the electronics, which will save a lot of money and hassle if only the valve stem is damaged by road debris, corrosion or a careless tire technician.
Federal law prohibits a tire/wheel technician from disabling the TPMS system. So if you buy new wheels, either custom wheels or winter wheel/tire assemblies, he isn’t allowed to give you your car back until the TPMS system is operational. That means either re-using the original sensors or installing new ones. The labor charge to move the old sensors is nearly as much as buying four new iORO sensors, with fresh batteries already on board. Don’t waste money by trying to reuse old sensors!
ORO-TEK has been in the tire-pressure monitoring business since the very beginning in 2006, when the NHTSA first required TPMS systems be installed on new vehicles. The California-based company estimates that over ten million TPMS sensor will need to be replaced annually, as more new cars with sensors hit the road. OROTEK is heavily involved in efforts to educate tire and wheel technicians about specifics on installing and maintaining TPMS systems in the aftermarket industry, but in educating the public about TPMS systems, and the federal guidelines governing their installation.
