I ordered a GT on Monday night and have a replacement set of rims in mind once the car arrives. Because its a 5 speed, I've been told it could be awhile. Can anyone tell me if the 2007 has a tire pressure monitoring system or something to that effect, and am I limited in which rims I can install on the car? If there is a system, can I override it? Thanks for any assistance.

Look in your owners manual!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it has a picture of it. You can't overide it. Ford P/N for new strap kit 6F2A-1A193 A thru M they have kits for 14" thru 24" rims. The system is Federal mandated for 2007 and beyond all makes.

You can't override the system. I looked and asked about it. My car had 20" rims on it before I even purchased it (the dealer had them installed) and they didn't do anything to make the TPMS system work. But I know there are straps and sensors out there. You should be able to use the sensors from the stock wheels and buy a different size strap. I don't know where the best place to get them is, but I know www.tirerack.com has them, although they look pricey on there. Your best bet would be to go under the tire section in here, there are a lot of questions on there. Colin from the above website has a wealth of information too, and he won't sit there and try to sell you their parts. Oooorrrrr, you can just suck it up like I am and hit the "reset" button every time you start the car to clear the TPMS malfunction warning.

thanks guys. It's a bit clearer and will check the referenced websites for more info. Now I can't wait to get this car as this site and pictures have become additive. It's become part of my nightly ritual.
I've also seen guys on here take all the sensors off the factory wheels and stick them in a PVC tube with a tire valve on one end and pressurized to 35psi. I haven't tried it yet since I have other plans before wheels, but that seems to be the cheapest and easiest way to make it work. The sensors are not smart enough to know where they are on the vehicle, just that they have to be within so many feet of the reciever since they are RF signals. They all just strap the tube in the trunk somewhere under the carpet or to the underside of the parcel shelf.

It's not fast, but it looks good getting there.
