Default 18/19'' wheels

How will this affect my speedometer? If anything.

If you use tires with the same diameter there won't be any change at all. For example, on your 18 in wheel you can run 255/45-18 tires and keep the same 27 inch diameter as stock. I wouldn't go beyond the 18 wheels. The tires get very thin and feels like your on solid rubber tires IMO. I went with some 2010GT500 convertible wheels that were 18X9 1/2, used the 255/45-17 Hankook v12 tires and am very happy with them.

Did you get a TPMS sensor put in them? If so, how much was it?

I bought the TPMS kit from American Muscle for $149. It included everything needed including the reset tool. I installed them on my rims before I took them to have the tires mounted and balanced. I also needed the steering limiters made by roush. Got them from AM for $10. They were so easy to install and did the trick with these wider tires and rims.

I have those rims, with the 555 Nittos, great combo!! I got the TPMS sensors with them, AM installed the sensors and mounted the tires...All I had to do was mount the tires on the car and reset the sensors. AM has a tool that does that for you, along with instructions. It really changed the look of the car and really helped the handling.
