TPMS sensor is much more expensive than $10. OEM TPMS sensor, part no. BHA4-37-140A, is $101.03 MSRP each. Most popular aftermarket sensor, Autel MX-Sensor 2 in 1 (315MHz + 433MHz) clamp-in TPMS programmable sensor is about $30 each. If you want new TPMS sensors during the tire change at Discount Tire Store, it’s about $60 each for BH SENS TPMS sensor.TPMS sensors in the wheel are typically on the inside of the wheel but integral with the valve stem. ⋯ I recall the cost of the sensors (with built in batteries) was about $10 each.
$10 usually is for a standard rubber valve stem, or a “rebuild kit” from Discount Tire which includes the rubber grommet, retaining nut, core and cap.
Finally there’re many different types of TPMS sensors. Make sure to get a TMPS sensor which is Mazda compatible, or pre-programmed to be Mazda compatible.
