Hey all,

bought tires before for all of my previous slks (320,350). My 09 55 has those tire pressure sensors in em. is it just a matter for my tire place to unscrew, replace tires and screw em back in? then i just reset the tire pressure sensor from comand or does the dealer or something else need resetting? thanks!

:confused:Wish I could help, but I have no experience with tire pressure monitors. I'm old school and feel they're an unnecessary expense for something I don't need. How many miles on your 2009 SLK 55? Already need tires?

Jbanks, I replaced my rear tire with Goodyear F1 Asymmetric 255/35R18 (a tad wider than the original 245) and the vehicle has TPMS. The tire shop mainly removed the old tire, placed the new ones, spin balance on the computer guided machine and mounted them on the vehicle. The TPMS component on the wheel remain as is, no need to remove/replace or do anything. No resetting was required on the instrument cluster.

I may have replaced my rear tires a few hundred miles early with tread depth between 3/32" and 2/32", about 12 to 13K on the odometer.

Tire shops usually charge more to mount tires on TPMS equiped wheels as they have to be carefull not to damage the sensors. You should 'reset' the system using the instrument panel menu after making sure that the air pressure is correct in all tires when they are cold.
