Tire cut sidewall - questions please

Well sh#@.

just cut a sidewalk on a new tire. Only 4,000 miles on the tire. I need to shop for a replacement tire. In the meantime I got to thinking and had a few questions. If you don’t mind. These are reference to a new 2022 JLU with BFG K02 T315/70r17


1) is there a tpms sensor in the spare?
2) if I move the spare is it difficult to retrain the TPMS to recognize the tire position?
3) any tire dealers you recommend in the Phoenix market? My dealer of choice isn’t in the southwest.

Thanks in advance.

There is likely a sensor on your spare as it’s full size. Compare the stem on them, if they look the same it’s likely got it.

Im not sure, but many tpms systems will automatically adjust to the position of the wheels. If you go through DT, you can ask them. They can do this if needed.

I have and will only deal with DT. I get the certificates and I have talked to my local shop. If I puncture the sidewalls I pay the $60 for a new certificate and I have a new tire.

There should be one in the spare. Typically there isn’t on the “donut” type spares but the JL should have one just like the JK. Discount tire/americas tire owns the southwest and is who I would recommend. They are headquartered right there in Scottsdale.
Excellent thank you.

They cover your tires from damage. If they can’t repair the damage they fill replace the tire at just the cost of a new certificate.

They also price match and can order tires they don’t have in stock normally. Talk to the Rep here, they should be able to help you out.

Another option is to look on craigslist. Jeep owners a lot of times have brand new stock wheels and tires for sale cheap, because they've upgraded to larger tires. If you're going to a shop though, Discount is the one.

wow, that is a first! I have had two Rubicons with KO2's since 2009, one a JK, the other a JL, never had an issue with the BFG's. Discount Tire is the way to go, certificates are a must for a Jeep; never a worry. Costco will have a great deal time to time, but Discount Tire is a good deal.

Sorry to hear about your cut tore. Thank you all for the recommendations. I may be biased but I would recommend Discount Tire as well. We have over 50 stores in the Phoenix AZ area.

Old thread but

1) JL should have a TPMS in the spare

2) TPMS on JL's automatically calibrates itself for tire location when rotating, after about a mile of driving the sensors are woken up and the vehicle will know where each one is.
