Anyone else swap out their 18/19's wheels/tires for the Z51 19/20's?

I purchased a set of Z51 wheels/tires/tpms from a fellow forum member and will be removing my 18/19" and installing these (19/20"). Do I need to do anything as far as having the car relearn the new wheels/tpms or just put the new wheels on and keep flying?

Also what should the PSI be for the Z51 tires?

Thanks in advance!

Instructions on how to relearn your tires sensors, is in the owners manual. If you but new TPMs make sure they are gm parts not an aftermarket. After market sensors are not working right now. I switched my wheels out and love it! Congrats!

Indeed, I found the instructions in the owners manual (page 10-56):

"When a tire is installed, the vehicle must be stationary for about 20 minutes before the system recalculates. The following relearn process takes up to 10 minutes, driving at a minimum speed of 19km/h (12 mph)."

I'll update the thread once I swap out my tires/wheels and run into any snags.

Thanks,

Make sure you get the right part #'d sensors. There are two different part numbers for the 2014 Corvette. One set is autolearn, while the other is not. Should call your dealer and give them your VIN# and they can provide you with the part # for your specific car. Assuming your car has the auto learn sensors, then just install them when you mount the tires and after some driving, you should be good to go. If not, you can take it to any dealer. Most dealers will do it without even checking the car in. The service writers have a tool and are trained to program them on the spot. Takes about 5-10 minutes. Again, can't stress enough though, make sure you get the right part #'s. I was sent the wrong ones and the dealer spent two hours trying program them. Had to dismount the tires and replaced the sensors, then it was a 5 minute process. The wrong part number sensors will not work. There are two sets for the 2014 Corvette.
