I'd had good luck with the OEM sensors, and those are the ones in the wheels with the new tires. FWIW, while I don't think it's the best design, at least on the GT, if any one sensor isn't detected,...

It took me all of maybe 30-minutes of driving the i3 to learn how to drive it smoothly. If you've never driven it, it's a little hard to picture. When going a steady speed, you're holding your foot...
