    Who bought their MR125's from TireRack? If so, did they install the TPMS, or did you have to have someone install them?

    I bought a set of wheels and tires from tirerack and if you purchase TPMS, they install and mount and everything. Ready to bolt on. Then you either go to the dealer for TPMS synch or buy the ford tool, Motorcraft TPMS19 for $30 and do it yourself.

    Here is what tirerack charged me for a set of TPMS sensors, etc. For me it was a deal because it saved the time and cost of doing it locally and now I have two sets of TPMS. ;)

    4 315MHz Tire Pressure Sensor In Stock $32.00 $128.00
    4 Optional Black Metal Valve In Stock $4.99 $19.96

    Here are the steps I used that worked successfully. It might take you a couple tries to get 1-9 right. It did for me. ahha

    1. Make sure all tires are inflated to the vehicle specifications.
    2. Make sure ignition button is OFF then press and release the brake pedal.
    3. Hold the ignition button down for 2 seconds, release it, and then tap the button once. The vehicle should be OFF. Hold the ignition button down for another two seconds, release it, and then tap the button once.
    4. Hold the ignition button down for two seconds again. The vehicle should be in RUN mode, engine off.
    5. Press and release the brake pedal.
    6. Tap the ignition button once so the vehicle is OFF.
    7. Hold the ignition button down for 2 seconds, release it, and then tap the button once. The vehicle should be OFF. Hold the ignition button down for another two seconds, release it, and then tap the button once.
    8. Hold the ignition button down for two seconds again. The vehicle should be in RUN mode, engine off.
    9. The horn should sound letting you know the vehicle has entered into TPMS relearn mode.
    10. Place the top of the FORDTRIGGER on the sidewall of the driver's side front tire in the location of the valve stem.
    11. Press the button of the FORDTRIGGER tool. The vehicle's horn will sound letting you know the sensor has been learned.
    12. Once the horn sounds, move on to the passenger side front tire and repeat the process. Each tire should only take 30 seconds or less.
    13. After the passenger side front tire has been learned, continue on to the passenger side rear tire and finishing with the driver's side rear tire.
    14. You may now turn the ignition to OFF. If the horn does not sound, the sensors were learned successfully. If the horn sound twice, then the process must be repeated because there was a malfunction.

    Update: I was ready to switch over to the mr125's today, but had a weather delay...so I set up and bled the jack and waited for Brown:poop: to deliver the TPMS trigger...so it will be tomorrow...and I can't wait to rid the car of the Potenzas and the heavy OEM wheels and the road noise...my gods it is like driving on the rims...

    So I installed the mr125 with the Michelin Pilot Sport tires..........not balanced, having a thumping sound, and a high end humming at 80mph...and btw razorlab, the TPMS instructions worked to a tee...no problems...anyone else experience sound or vibration after installing the mr125's? This is a big bummer....and the road noise sucks too!! What is a man to do???

    I don;'t know if they're louder than stock but I have NO vibration or thumping at any speed to over 100 mph... you mention NOT balanced. Have them checked!
