    Kind of confusing...

    Going to put the wheels and tires from my truck to my wife's Tahoe. And put hers on mine.

    I am then going to get new wheels and put them on the truck because I want my wife's tires with the new wheels.

    I can get the TPMS sensors synced to the truck on the new wheels. But my wife's Tahoe will still have my wheels synced to my truck as well...

    I am planning on getting them synced to the Tahoe at a later date, I just can't take both of them to discount and she doesn't want to spend all day at discount and take both up there because we live an hour away...

    Is there any problem in having both sets synced to the truck for a few days while I wait to get the Tahoe synced at a later date?

    Hope that made sense

    I just bought the tool called EL-50448. It is a bright orange tool from Amazon. Came in 2 days. $80 CAD.

    I've programmed 3 sets of tires already from 2006 and up. It says 2010+ only but I just used it on my 2007 NNBS Sierra

    Another stupid question, I bought some wheels with tpms sensors on it, how do I know they work on my vehicle. Dude that had the wheels said they were off an NBS and they are going on an NNBS. Didn't recal NBS TPMS being a thing.

    The NBS trucks never came with the sensors only the nbs suvs but all GM sensors run on the same frequency. Only difference is some have the snap in rubber stems and some have the bolt in metal stems. In theory any GM sensor can be programmed to any GM vehicle that supports tpms.

    Seems like the frequency is 315 mhz on the majority of sensors. Will this tool only work on GM or will it work on other makes too?

    There is only two frequencies 315 and 433 mhz, GM uses 315. The tool will work on both.

    Actually the 05-06 suvs had them as options. They were available on the Tahoe Z71/LT, Yukon Denali/XL and Escalade.

    Thanks. After I posted I did some searching and found that most are 315 in the US

    Just wondering, did they eliminate the air down method?? My 2011 Sierra works on that method.

    I've tried that before and it didn't work for my new sensors. They actually had to be ACTIVATED since they were brand new, your method will work for if you swap rear tires to the front so your system knows which tire is where

    I also have 3 GM vehicles in the house hold.
