Hey there smart peeps,

I'm looking to purchase used factory mags off of a 2013 smart to slap them on my 2015 pure. I'll then be keeping the steel wheels for my winter tires. I haven't seen the wheels in person yet (only pics) and they look nice enough.
Aside from the obvious warps and kinks, is there anything I should be mindful of before forking out the money? Any not so obvious signs that these have been abused?
What about the TPMS? Will they automatically be read by ShMarty?

As always, thanks in advance for your valued advice!

Since the rims are off a smart, the sensors should work good, unless the batteries (inside the sensors) are worn out. Check the width of the rims before buying tires for them as they are probably wider than your steelies. Make sure they use the same lug bolts as the stock rims (if they are aftermarket rims)

The lady selling them is saying they are 15x4.5 and 15x5.5 with the tires on the mags showing the "proper" 155/60/15 and 175/55/15 sizes... They are smart mags so I assume they should fit no problem? Or am I off in left field?
