Don't bother unless you really can't stand that light being on your dash. I can't justify its 160$ unless you get flat tires often or have leaks haha. I've ran my wheels all summer without TPMS sensors.I bought a set of used snow tires and rims but they did not come with TPMS sensors. I'm about ready to get them mounted, any recommendations of decent sensors? Should I even bother?
Dumb question . . . as long as you swap back to the summer tires with the TPMS when it's time for the inspection, shouldn't this be a non-issue? Here in Maine we also have the annual inspection and I suspect having the TPMS light on would be a reason for failing the inspection, but since my car is due in May I typically have the summer tires with the TPMS back on at that point.From what I've heard, if you live in Vermont you WILL need them as inspections next year will not allow lights being lit in the dash. Gotta love the yoyo's in charge.
How would that work. If all tires are equally low then the ecu is going to think they are good.Funny I asked the salesman if Subaru used TPMS valves or just went by a comparison of the wheel speed sensors like my GTI did and he told me they don't have TPMS sensors.........
True if all 4 tires were equally low, you wouldn't get a light. I have no idea how the law is written, but I know both my sport wagon and GTI were calculated through the wheel speed sensors. I had the joy of experiencing a flat on the wagon when a lady decided that she wanted to use the lane I was in giving me no choice but to move onto the shoulder. I saw something laying on the side of the road like a converter shield or something, but didn't have much of a choice but to run it over. About a quarter mile later, the lights and bells went off and sure enough, I had a flat RR.How would that work. If all tires are equally low then the ecu is going to think they are good.
All newer cars have some sort of tpms. I believe it has been mandated
