    I've been searching throughout the site for recommendations/specifications for new TPMS for newer LR4's and haven't seen any direct products/part numbers for stock wheels.

    On eBay, Amazon, Rock Auto, etc... there are listings for 433mhz units but I'm concerned that some may not work. It seems some folks have only got OEM units to work.

    Some are programmable, some need new registration # via OBD II port, some apparently can be installed and just need to go through the relearn process.

    I plan on taking the older wheels (from recent purchase) to a local garage and having the old 315mhz sensors replaced with new 433mhz sensors.

    Can someone recommend a product that works with no programming (or simple programming that any garage can do) for a 2016 LR4 HSE @ 433mhz? Thanks. Marty

    Not sure what mhz, but after being quoted some ridiculous amount for each from a local dealership as usual with the parts department following the LR dealerships' way of charging the customer way "Above & Beyond" what the part should really cost, I ended up ordering a set of four from TireRack for a fraction of the cost, for my '16.

    Needed another set for my winters. I did not need to program anything, simply had the local tire shop installed the sensors when I got the new set of rims/tires.

    No issues at all so far and they have worked just like the OEMs that came from the factory with the truck which are still installed on my other/summer set. So look em up.

    LR, specifically LRNA, needs to realize that their customers are fully aware that they are being over charged for both parts and services by ridiculous amounts simply because of the fact that we can afford it and not that the parts cost that much or that their services/labor offer craftsmanship or exacting standards. In fact, quite the contrary, both the service and the parts, specially the quality of accessories, have become very mediocre and inferior over the last several years.

    The above statement of mine is just my personal experience with LR dealerships over the last fourteen years of ownership and dealing with six different dealerships, all of which in two of the main LRNA markets, Los Angeles and New York. YMMV of course.

    If it were not for the product itself (LR3/4), I would have said goodby to this so called prestige brand a very long time ago.

    Besides the ever fading heritage/legacy with each successive model, and the wood trims, the flashy rims, and the cow hides, etc, which these days you can easily get in an upper trim Kia or a Hyndai (and with probably better quality and straight stitching and craftsmanship), there is nothing really prestigious about the brand anymore.

    Build quality QC levels are no better than an average SUV, actually far worse. There is no reliability (never was actually, but LR3 was probably a half hearted attempt), and there is no longevity.

    And the level of customer care is such that instead of immediately contacting the customers to have a badly designed, faulty part replaced, this part (even after it being recognized internally by LR as a faulty component and even after it being re-designed and revised as replacement by its engineers) actually has to fail first even with the known extreme likely hood of causing a catastrophic engine failure, within or outside the warranty, before LR would address it.

    All because the part failures statistics have to reach a certain corporate threshold first, regardless of how many customer may end up paying out of pocket for such a failure. Yes, I am talking about the slow leaking and therefore hard to detect faulty crossover pipe.

    Plus with the fading/namesake off road capabilities, the vehicles in the lineup are not any different than say, a BMW or an Audi (maybe save the new Defender) anymore. So remind me again what am I paying the premium for again?

    Thanks for the reply. It sounds like you did I what I am attempting to do. Purchase wheels/tires for the winter and install new TPMS's. I'll call Tire Rack tomorrow and get a quote from my local garage to install them. Hopefully the wheels/tires will be back up for sale in the late spring when I move to the new Defender. I want to wait a bit until there is a decent selection.

    I am not sure about 433 MHz, but my 2012 was very picky about which TMPS sensors were fitted for the 315 MHz. My new sensors were quoted at $120 each from Land Rover dealerships, which was about the same as an aftermarket NAPA unit, which did not interface properly with the onboard computer. I ended up buying OEM VDO units from Rock Auto for about $45 and solved all of my TPMS related issues. Apparently you save about $80 for each unit by not having Land Rover put them in a branded card board box.

    I would strongly recommend going the OEM route to save potential issues, but you have OEM options outside of Land Rover that will save you a lot of money.

    Thanks for the feedback. I opted for the BOXI units I saw on Amazon. Part # LR070840. About $124 for 4 sensors. My garage said they'd swap out the sensors and mount on my LR4 for $25-$30 for each wheel depending on how hard it is to remove the old sensor. Fingers crossed for full compatibility. We are getting our first dusting of snow forecast for this Friday.

    Like you, I purchased a set of 433mhz TPMS valves from Amazon for the price of one OEM valve when I installed new wheels and tires on my D5 2 years ago. Haven't had any problems.

    I'm curious what rims you all are using as it's my understanding that the TPMS sensors will only seat correctly in the LR rims but not other (third-party) rims.

    AR077 - do you remember if the shop had to "Wake Up/Activate/Set to Park Mode" the sensors before installation? My understanding is they need to be activated. Then they will Relearn on their own.

    My rims are off of a 2014 LR4 I believe. OEM.

    FYI - Replacement of 315mhz TPMS (were on wheels I recently purchased for snow tires from a 2014 LR4) with 433mhz TPMS. Bought BOXI / LR070840 for my 2016 LR4 HSE. The form factor looks identical so I don't need to rebalance the wheels.

    My local Shell station's Autel MaxiSYS could not see the BOXI sensors so I went to local independent tire specialist who used a Bartec and they said they woke up fine after a little time and showed 0 psi before being fitted to the wheels. Tomorrow I am mounting the wheels on the car and hopefully they will Relearn and pair to the car. Fingers crossed. BTW, i called my Land Rover dealer parts department to verify the part number and they quoted me $200 per sensor. Seriously?
