#14 of 61 Trouble with my 07 Yukon low pressure tire sensors
Dec 14, 2006 (4:08 pm)
I recently changed my tires over from the 20" to a 17" Wintercat studded tire and rims and also installed new sensors. I got the part number from the dealership using my VIN and purchased the sensors. When the tires were installed the dash tire alarm is lit up and I cannot clear. The tire shop uses the portable sensor and is picking up the signal. do you have any ideas?

There is a learning procedure required for the truck to know which sensor is in which location. Since you have 4 new sensors, none of their "ID" numbers have ever been read by your computer. You (or the tire shop), needs to reprogram the locations of each sensor. It is a processs that requires you to put the computer in "learn" mode, and then let air out of each tire (in sequence), until the computer learns each sensors ID and location.

I've also got an 07 Yukon Denali that currently has 18" wheels. I'm moving to Alaska in May, and a friend has recommended that I downsize to 17" wheels with studded tires for wintertime driving up there. He also mentioned buying them in the lower 48 since they get premium prices in Alaska. Does anyone have any other suggestions, different thoughts, or advice otherwise?

Freight's a killer but the price differential for Anchorage compared to most big cities isn't as bad as it used to be.
I guess you are keeping the 18's for summer? I think I'd wait and get steelies shipped up or find some locally after arrival and buy the studs up there. That's a lot of bulk and weight to haul up unless you are driving up empty otherwise.
Did your buddy tell you to get a Milepost too? They are handy for the drive up.

Yes, I plan to keep the 18s. The military is going to move me so I'm not overly concerned about the weight and cube. I may purchase the wheels here and get the tires mounted up there.
I do have a Milepost. That is definitely a handy guide.

In that case, may as way mount them and ship them from home, unless you have horrible sales tax where you are now.
btw, I had old EAF company all week.

You'd better check clearance before you buy those 17's. I would guess that you would have clearance between the brake calipers and the wheel, but you may not. I'd see if a local tire shop is willing to test this by throwing a wheel on to check.
Only reason I bring it up is that 18's are the smallest stock size on the Denali/Escalade, and I am not sure if GM used different brakes on these compared to a Suburban or Yukon.
#21 of 61 Upgrading a 07 Yukon Denali from the standard 18" to 20"
Mar 12, 2007 (3:17 am)
I purchased a 07 Denali Yukon with the standard 18" wheels I want to upgrade them to the Denali GMC optional 20" wheels. I was down at my local GMC dealer and someone came up to me and suggested I do not change the wheels, claiming there is an issue with some sort of setting for the suspensions or something that needs to be re calibrated once the wheels are changed. Is this true? Has anyone upgraded their wheels and had to change some sort of setting?
#22 of 61 aftermarket wheels oem tire sensor will not fit
Apr 07, 2007 (6:09 pm)
GMC Yukon replace orginal wheels with 20inch aftermarket wheels but the oem TIRE SENSORS will not Fit.Tire shop states oem is to long and seats in middle of wheel, instead seated from angle like in oem wheel. The parts department from gmc states the TIRE SENSOR are the correct one oem from dealer. How can make TIRE SENSOR fit.
#23 of 61 TPMS indicates Check Tire Pressure
May 03, 2007 (12:09 am)
We just purchased a 07 Yukon XL and replaced the standard wheels/tires with 22 inch rims. The TPMS is correctly reporting the new tire pressures, now in the Mid 40 PSI range which is normal for these new tires. The old pressure range is around 30 psi on the placard. The question is everytime the ignition is turned on, we get a "Check Tire Pressure" message on the DIC. The pressures are around 42-45 PSI. Is this caused by the higher tire pressure? Anyone else experince this?
