    Hey guys, these TPMS from Rock Auto (linked below) run as low as $100 for a set of 4. I just called my local tire shop and they sell them for $320 for a set. AM and CJPP both appear to have sets for about $150. Would these Schrader ones be fine for my winter wheels/tires, or am I missing something here? Are they any different than what AM/CJPP sells, besides not having the activation tool (which I've read isn't needed for my 2018)?

    I ordered them, so I'll let you guys know. Maybe it'll help the next person that searches this. I will say that they printed the shipping label within about 30 minutes of ordering!

    Yeah I did get the 315MHz, hopefully that is the correct one! Weird that there are multiple frequencies.

    315 MHz is the correct frequency for your GT.

    I saw some of those too, they were tempting. I wish there was a way to test these sensors I bought without putting my winter wheels/tires on and driving around for 10-20 miles, unnecessary wear in this heat on a tire like that.

    Had no issues with a brand new OEM set I got for around $30 from eBay.
