Will TPMS from 350Z fit 370Z rims?

Will the TPMS sensors from a 2003 350Z with OEM 18ís (Touring) fit in an OEM set of 18ís from a 370Z? Iíve been searching forums A LOT, but have yet to find an answer.

350Z OEM size:
rear: 18x8 (offset +30) 245/45/18
front: 18x8 (offset +30) 225/45/18

370Z OEM size:
rear: 18x9 (offset +15) 245/45/18
front: 18x8 (offset +43) 225/50/18

The used set of 370Z wheels Iím considering come with TPMS sensors, but from a lot of searching in forums, Iíve been reading that the 370Z sensors canít programmed to a 350Z, so Iím hoping I can reuse my 350Z sensors by installing them into the 370Z wheels (hoping theyíre the same threading, length, straight vs 90 degree type, etc).

Also, with the OEM 370Z wheels, will I need longer wheel studs? Again, Iíve been searching lots, but canít find any answers. I know I will need 370Z lug nuts, and from what Iíve found online, it seems I *could* use a spacer in the front, but that would only be to make the wheel come out for looks, but would not be required to keep everything within spec.

I would really appreciate any help with this - thanks!!

Check with your local tire store on the TPMS- they should have a programmer that'll tell you whether it'll work. Not sure about the wheels...

Yes, you can retrofit the Z34 wheels with the Z33 sensors. And if you're lucky, your car won't even know the difference. But if it does, no real issue. The tire shop (or you) can do a TPMS re-set, no big deal.


No need for longer wheel studs. And you already know about the lug nuts.



You DO need front spacers to get the high offset Z34 wheels down into an acceptable range for proper use on a Z33. Generally, a 20mm spacer is needed, depending on which Z34 wheels you're running. Based on your specs, I'm guessing the Base model wheels which, as noted, have a +43 offset. Run those with 20mm spacers giving you an effective offset of +23, perfect for Z33. (Note, the Z34 wheels mount and rotate on the hub, no problem, no interference without spacers - but what it does to steering response (and secondarily, looks) - dumbs it down - is unacceptable, IMO.)


PS Not like I expect the OP to return.... so many people on this forum pop in, ask a question, then disappear, wasting people's time. Ehhh... This poster hasn't been on since the day the post was made weeks ago

Why ask if one doesn't really want an answer??

My apologies - I had an immediate death in the family, well two actually since just after Christmas, and so this no longer became a priority. I do appreciate all the input though.

I ended up playing it safe and getting a set of 2007 350Z rims - both for offset, and potential TPMS compatibility.

I will probably mount the 2007 rims (with the already mounted used tires), and see how annoying the no-TPMS warning light becomes, and then either move the sensors over and have the wheels rebalanced, or wait until I need new tires and then have them moved over, rebalanced, and get an alignment done. Hopefully the sensors won't break when removed from the original rims, as I've read this to be an issue as well with some.

Thanks to all who posted!
