ZCP Wheels

Guys

I'm seriously considering with parting cash for a set of ZCP wheels. What is the crack with the TPMS as i don't understand how it works and do they come with the wheels?

Thanks

Here in the UK there is no sensor in the wheel itselfs, The TPMS works off of rolling radius differences. You will have not issues what so ever. I change my wheels to ZCP's

Has sensors (cv joint/hub normally) that work out circumference of tire/wheel you reset it in the settings on idrive then if it changes ie low air pressure the circumference reduces bringing up warning on the screen
Makes changing rims hassle free bro

More or less everything to be honest.

Di you get them from a main dealer + how much + waiting time etc or buy them online ?

Any issues with tyre pressure monitors (guessing no) ?

Just FYI I've got OEM 19's on Conti 5P's but am thinking to go the whole hog with ZCP splitters, wheels and mirrors when the next tyre change is due.

Thanks,
Ken

I bought them from my local dealer 1650, I waited 4 days.

There are no pressure sensors. see previous posts.

I fittted Conti 3's and thought they were better that PS2's
