    I have a 2011 GMC 2500/CC with 265/70/18's on it now(factory). I want to go to a 17" inch rim and a 285/70/17 to have an extra set of wheels for summer and plowing. Will this affect the TPMS sensors if the new wheels are equipped with the sensors or will I have to have anything recalibrated? Thanks for your:help: help.

    The TPMS sensors will recaliberate automatically. Make sure the overall height of the wheel and tire is the same or your speedometer will be off. I hope your plowing with the 265s.

    You will have to bring it in to the dealership if you do not reuse the original sensors.
