    Im looking at a set of 20” BBS alloys for my 2015 A5 coupe and I’d like to know if my tyre pressure sensor will still function or will it cause issues.

    Thanks in advance.

    Tire pressure monitoring system
    Many models from Audi are equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system that is integrated into the electronic stabilization program (ESP). This is a system that measures indirectly, has no sensors of its own in the tire and thus adds no weight and requires no maintenance. It alerts the driver in the event of pressure loss by displaying a warning on the onboard monitor. If only one tire is affected, the position of the tire is indicated. The system also detects a gradual loss of pressure through diffusion in all four tires, resulting in a higher rolling resistance and increased fuel consumption.
