I have 2 18x9.5 wheels that i am putting on the rear of my car so i can run BFG drag radials for better traction on the street and track.I want to know if i remove both sensors from my stock rear wheels and install them on the new rear wheels do i need to reprogram my wheels again.I have been told i do not have to just make sure you keep the right with the right side and left with the left side.Is this correct?

You are right. No need to reprogram, just make sure to keep track which side they came off.

Just make sure when you do it that you use the light weight summer air. :D

You don't even need the sensors for racing. I just did this. I put drag radials on the back....NO sensors.....drove to track, raced ALL day, drove all weekend...about 130 miles. NO problems. DIC displayed 32psi all weekend. Monday I put my street tires back on and the DIC displayed the correct psi. Check out my post from a few weeks ago. Midnight902 has also done this. He even has more info.

:smack Disregard what I just said in the posts above....I thought you were using the drag radials only for track use. If you leave the sensors out I was told that after 100+ miles you may start having problems.:lookinup:

Ya i plan on leaving them on full time for traction on the street,i am using the new Z06 style wheel for the back which will match the front exactly.
