Stuck for winter tires!

Hello everyone!

I need winter tires ASAP because i will be traveling to Canada for 1 month in a week and half! I ordered a set from tirerack 2 weeks ago but they have been out of TPMS. They were supposed to receive them already but i called yesterday and they told me that they wonít get them until the 15th! This is too far and i have the option to cancel my order. But i donít know what to do. Should i just order them without the TPMS or will it be annoying through the whole winter? or should i order from somewhere else? (I ordered the Sport 7 rims with the Dunlop Sport 3D tires). Please help me i need them ASAP!!!!

Thanks everyone

You should be able to live without the TPMS, it makes a noise and flashes, and then settles to a constant light. You could buy the TPMS elsewhere though.

I might have some brand new OEM 18s and brand new Dunlop 3D winter tires for sale. I will know in the next 24-36 hours.

Yes, TPMS sensors are different for MY2010+. So you might have a problem.

Check with the forum sponsors... seems as though most have them in stock. I had no problems getting my 2011 sensors from Alufelgen with my winter wheels.
