Be in the know before switching from OE wheels to aftermarket. Depending on the size of the wheel, you may need to change the Huf RDV valve stem. We’ve compiled a list of RDV valve stem measurements to help you determine the correct valve for your wheel. You can purchase the Huf RDV valve stem here.

We’re adding TPMS relearn/programming procedures for new and older vehicles on a daily basis. We recently just added relearn/programming procedures for specific Chevrolet, GMC, and Cadillac vehicles factory equipped with the Schrader 20107 TPMS sensor and Mini Cooper vehicles equipped with the Huf RDE008 TPMS sensor.
We receive tons of questions asking about the batteries installed in TPMS sensors.
What type of batteries do OEM sensors use? Can a depleted TPMS battery be removed and replaced? How do you know when a TPMS sensor’s battery has failed? What is the life expectancy of a TPMS sensor?
Most TPMS sensors are powered by a 3-volt lithium ion battery. Some TPMS sensors use a 1.250-volt nickel metal hydride battery. The battery is encased in the sensor’s molded plastic housing. A battery that is running low on or is depleted requires the replacement of the ENTIRE TPMS sensor assembly.
One of the leading causes of TPMS damage is from mishandling the unit and its components during the installation process.
Huf tire pressure monitoring sensor (TPMS) and valve stem installation and mounting instructions have been uploaded to our “TPMS How-To” section under “3. Installation Guides and Mounting Solutions.” The mounting instructions are intended to help guide users in the installation of Huf TPMS without damaging the sensor or its components.
Tired of having to go through the hassle of using a TPMS mounting strap kit to install your Ford/Lear banded TPMS sensors?
Huf (formerly Beru) assisted in the design of the Ford/Lear banded TPMS sensor and are now able to use the sensors protocol in their own design.
Huf has released two valve-mounted TPMS sensors that are designed to replace the Ford/Lear 6F2Z-1A189A and 8C2Z-1A189A banded TPMS sensors.
The Huf RDE014 and RDE015 follow the traditional valve-mounted TPMS sensor style and eliminate the need to use a TPMS Mounting Strap Kit for TPMS installation. Both the RDE014 and RDE015 sensors function 100% like the OE Ford/Lear banded sensors and include the valve stem assembly and service kit.
BMW utilizes a Direct tire pressure monitoring system in all of its vehicles. A Direct TPM syste uses tire pressure monitoring sensors installed in each wheel to measure pressure in each of the four tires. Pressure data is then transmitted wirelessly to a central receiver unit. The unit interprets the data and relays the information over to the driver. Modern technology allows TPMS data to be displayed on the vehicle’s on-board computer, with individual pressure readings in each tire. A traditional, more widely used system, simply displays a TPMS warning light (_!_) when the pressure in one or more tires is 25% or more below factory specifications.
