All,

I just purchased a set of aftermarket wheels for my 98 vert.

Some questions:
1. Can the tire monitoring sensors be moved from the old wheels to the new wheels?

2. How much should I expect to pay to have someone remount my tires and pressure sensors from my old wheels to the new wheels?

3. How long do the Goodyear Eagle EMT factory tires last? I have a daily driver 40K miles that sees a mixture of city/highway driving.

Thanks in advance,
Peter

Peter,
There was a great artical in Vette Magazine (Last Months Issue) on after market wheels for a C5 that may anwser most of your questions. They have a web site, CorvetteMagazine.com, you may be able to find what you need there.

I put 2001 wheels on my '99. They put the tire sensors on the new wheels and mounted and balanced all four for $60. The Goodyear Run Flats should last about 40,000+ miles depending on how you drive. Hope this helps.
