I bought mine new. Read my signature. I have a 2016 Trailhawk with every Factory Option except the remote CD player. Sticker price:
$45,180.00! When the road assistants removed my right front tire, the position on the EVIC read 0. When they installed my full size spare, same tire as the other 4 but mounted on a steel wheel, not a matching aluminum wheel, the position (RF) read 30 psi. My EVIC monitors the 4 positions. It does not monitor the spare; or, at least I have never seen a reading. The OM says that the spare has a TPMS which the EVIC can monitor. In my case, I interpret this to mean it can be read when mounted in one of the 4 driving positions. This is what happened to me. The flat tire was placed in the back. The EVIC no longer read its TPMS. I did not see the Spare Low Pressure warning.
I never would have known any of this had I not sliced the inside sidewall. New tire was $192.00. I never heard or felt anything which would cause about a 4" slit.
Because MT was a deal breaker for me, even though I built my TH on the Jeep site, I could not order MT because it was no longer being offered, and at the time of purchase, last August, 17s were being built. So, my Dealer found my Jeep. It came from Randy Wise CDJR located in Clio, Michigan, just north of Flint. The distance between Fort Wayne and Clio is around 200 miles. The Jeep had 374 miles when I purchased it. I know that my Dealer didn't mention anything to me about the spare, but I suppose that anything could have happened to my Jeep during the first 174 miles of its life up in Clio.
Now, one possibility could be that me having a TPMS in my spare might have something to do with the water in Flint. Might as well blame someone or something.
