Has anyone mounted V3 rims on a 2007?

Starting a new thread because I couldn't find anything related to V3 rims.

I would like to mount AP2 V3 rims (2008/2009 model year) on my 2007. Has anyone done this? If so, I need advice on how its done.

Having read the 2009 Service Manual, the TPMS system didn't come into the S2000 until 2008. Because the TPMS sensor mounts onto the inside of the valve stem, the V3 rims have a built-in counterweight in one of the spokes. I'm guessing that it would be well nigh impossible to counteract the built in counter-weights using tire-balance weights. So I'm left with 2 options (I think):
1. Mount non-working TPMS sensors, or
2. Get over it and begin to like the 2007 10-spoke rims

Any thoughts from someone who might have researched this, or done it before?

I have V3 wheels on my MY00 with zero issues. They will balance the wheels when they install the tires.

Thanks for the information - this is great news for me. I guess the tire-balancing weights *can* overcome the built-in counterweights.

They do have to put quite a few on there but they are stuck on the inside and not really that noticeable. They just put the old style stems in it and balance the wheels. I guess you can put the TPMS sensors on if you want they just wont send a signal to anything in the car.

mlc - those wheels look great on your AP1 !

Mick - post some pics when you get them on your car.

It took me a while to warm up to the V3s, but now I love them !

I was not aware of TPMS on the S nor the counter-balance in one of spokes. As soon as Spring breaks I have a set of V3s going on my '05. Now you got me wondering too!

Any photo before and after to share out please ?

I noticed that somehow the topic stopped half way without photos updated. Can you complete it by updating yourV3 wheels on your AP1?
