Default Oro-tek wheel sensors

Just received new aftermarket wheels sensors. They are manufactured by Oro-Tek. Very nice build quality and the stem can be seperated from the sensor. They are adjustable to conform to numerous different wheel profiles. The stems are actually nicer than OEM.

My cost was 38.00 each which was the factor to go this route instead of oem. I have been assured that they are 100% compatible with the gm system or money back. Very well made unit just as oem. The company has been making tpms systems since 2006. The vendor is not a sponsor so just do a search for oro-tek in google and you will find them.

New wheels installed today with the Oro-Tek sensors. They setup just like the factory units and preform identically, no issues.

Found another company that makes aftermarket sensors as well. Orange electronics. Google if you would like to find a vendor.

just a thought: it works better in search engine if you type in "TPMS" after the company name.

Are you asking about programming the sensors? They setup using the same tool as the factory sensors and the exact same procedure.
