BUMP

I just drove 30 minutes to the damn tire shop where they told me they couldn't install my new rims because BMW hadn't released the torque specs for the TPMS after 2004. I thought it was BS but he showed me his catalog and every single car imaginable had specs except BMWs 2005+.

The torque spec for the TPMS is printed right on the unit itself, when you remove the tires you'll see it

You can use a socket and tighten it without using a ratchet, but I would only do this as a last resort... always good to be spot on when it comes to torque. You might also need a TPMS rebuild kit depending on the condition of the rubber gaskets and such. Good luck
