Just an update, the RAM sport wheels that I got had TPMS sensors (assuming OEM ones), which worked on my truck.

No programming required. The truck detected them and I was good to go.

It's been my experience over multiple ram trucks, that OEM, out performs the aftermarket in TPMS sensors. So for this item I only buy Mopar sensors.

Every aftermarket sensor I've had drops out so the truck stops reading it, is far from accurate and if it does work, only last a couple of years.

I have OEM sensors in my 14, 15 and 16 rams and have no problems. All are original sensors so the 14s are coming up on ten years old.

If you noticed in the image above, the 2009 Dodge Ram, they used both the 315 MHz & 433 MHz tpms.

After that, they only used the 433 MHz TPMS
THE RAM DT & DS will not usually use the same TPMS

such as:

4X BRAND NEW ORGINAL OEM TIRE PRESSURE SENSOR TPMS 68293199AA-AB

Specifications:
Manufacturer Part Number : 68293199AA
Frequency: 433 MHz
QUANTITY: 4 PCS

FITS THE FOLLOWING VEHICLES:
2019-2022 RAM 1500 TRUCKS
THESE ONLY FIT THE DT (NEW STYLE). THEY DO NOT WORK ON THE CLASSIC.

Im so cheap I just turned them off on MY12 and set them to 0 on the wife's JK. I see zero reasons to waste money on these things.

I verify mine with a guage and then use them and do check them frequently. I find them to be handy and a heck of a lot easier then getting down on my old knee to use a guage on the tires weekly.

strangely enough i have a 21 warlock and my winter wheels (chrome plated 17" steelies) are from an early-mid 4g ram with oem sensors
when i install them in the winter i get the pressures displayed perfectly right off the bat leaving the parking lot

after about 10 to 15 minutes of driving the light comes on and says service tpms system and they wont work again until i install the summer wheels

always found that interesting haha
