^I had the same experience a couple years ago with the inexpensive OEW type. Just ordered a set of the Beru ones from them. Going on the car next week.

How do you code out the TPMS? I don't have durametric and really don't want to mess with it.

Yes, I tried everything with the EON sensors from OE wheels and it's junk. I had a tire shop read the sensors and the battery is fine.

I'm returning them or disputing them on my credit card.

I may just order a set from Tirerack, $280 and I know they'll work.

I bought Beru sensors from Tire Rack last time after the OEW cheap ones didn't work reliably. The ones from Tire Rack were fine but when I went to purchase another set from them Thursday, the site said they didn't carry them for my vehicle. I didn't call to check, just ordered the Berus from OEW.

I recently ordered new tires from Tire Rack and Beru / Huf sensors from OEW. I simply did not want to fool around with other sensors to save a few bucks. Everything has been installed and working perfectly.

Where are the "Beru/Huf" sensors from OEW? When I plug my 09 911 into their site I'm only seeing two options, and neither have those names. There is only EON or ORO-TEK. Here is the link: OEW TPMS

Thanks!

It's a problem with their search engine. Drop the model year and you will see them: http://www.oewheelsllc.com/TPMS/make/Porsche/model/911

Those ones are great, that's what I put in my car last tire change and they worked out great.

Nice thanks. I can either get those or some OEM Porsche ones with valve stems from 2012 for under $200. Not sure how much life they have left so makes for a tough decision!

Also, are TPMS sensors "always on"? Or are they only on when connected to the car? So if they are my winter wheels, the battery is not being used when stored in the summer? If so, may help the battery last longer. Just a thought.

Thanks!

Well crud. I ordered what I thought were the "good" ones from OEWheels and just had them installed but they said they aren't communicating with the car.

I purchased these: http://www.oewheelsllc.com/RDE001-43...rs-for-Porsche

It says 997 2007-2009 so I thought that was what I wanted for my 2009 C4S. However maybe I got mixed up? Anyone know for sure?

Thanks.

I got OE Wheels orange ones for my 997.1 - installed in my winter setup and synced within 20 miles. Occasionally they will all randomly go blank, then will come back on, but no TPMS warnings.

I'm not sure if I followed up on this but OE Wheels has terrible support. The cheap EON sensors from OE Wheels don't work with my 997.2. Instead, I bought sensors from the Tire Rack, ~280 so it's cheaper than those OE Wheels one listed above. They synced up in 1 minute and have performed flawlessly. I just called Tire Rack, gave them my Year Make/Model and maybe VIN and they just sent me what I needed.

A lot of OE Wheels discussion but anybody else try TPMS 24/7? (https://tpms247.com/). I bought four of them for 25 bucks a piece. They work fine and haven't caught on fire yet.

These look like the EON brand that OE Wheels sells for $144 for a set of 4. What year car do you have? Assuming the reset went fine? Buying a set this week and can't decide...

There's a difference between 997.1 & 997.2. That TPMS site has the 997.2 sensors at $50/piece HUF brand.
