    06 air pressure valve stems replace ?

    I have a 06 T&C with 50,000 miles on it and I am going to put new tires on it. What do you think, should I replace the air senser valve stems. now or let it go I just bought the van at don,t know much about the history. It does have the original tires on it. I hear there is batterys in them that can run down.
    Thanks for any advice you can give me

    If it were up to me I would replace them. I think they say they last fives years, so you got so time, but while you have the tires dismounted, to me it would make sense to change them. If not in a couple of years when they go bad, you will have to pay someone to dismount and remount again in order to change out the stems.

    That's what is nice about the older vehicles, they don't requires special valve stems.

    yes I have checked the prices they aren,t cheap but if one goes bad its not cheap to have it replaced a year after you put the new tires on

    Vehicles with TPMS seem to require that the TPMS be rebuilt when new tires are put on, so says my WalMart (government rule Walmart says they follow). This only replaces orings and other "wear items." I did not replace my TPMS sensors as I expect them to last at least through the next set of tires (10 years seems to be the industry standard).

    Lots of rust, leaking steering rack, bad rear AC condenser coil, rusted (and replaced) rear brake line. Looking forward to the next failure/defect that this Chrysler will bring into our lives.
