    TPMS (changing) when putting on new tires

    When putting new tires on my car the tire dealer wanted to change TPMS sensors with a rebuild kit for $14 per tire....is that normal to replace them when changing tires?

    Mine were fine when I went and had tire put on but I'm assuming that I will need to do this the NEXT time I get tires. I think the batteries are geared to last 3-4 years

    If you go from Steel wheels to Alloy it's the norm as the angle of the stem installation is different. Discount tire (America's Tire on the West Coast) charged me $8 per wheel........but that was last August so perhaps the price has increased since then.

    Smile Changing Rims - Calibrating TPMS

    I have 4 alloy rims equipped with TPMS sensors as well as 4 steel rims (for winter) equipped with sensors as well. Can I switch the rims over myself and calibrate the sensors without having to go back to the dealer? Or does the dealer have to calibrate the sensors each year when I switch out my rims?

    I have the same question. Eagerly awaiting a solution!

    According to my guide the sensors will need to be flashed with a scan tool. If you have a Discount Tire or America's tire near you they can do this for you. Call your local store for details.

    Is there any kind of tool to buy to have on hand to save a trip to a store? I don't have either any where near me.

    Your dealership and any reputable tire shop will have the scan tool available. The TPMS system on your CR-V is advanced and requires a Tech-400 which you can purchase but runs around $1900.

    TPMS and new tires - what did they do?

    Ok, I've read nearly all the TPMS threads and I'm lost. I just put on 4 new tires. Same factory wheels. I paid a fixed price per tire for the everything - balancing, mount, disposal, etc. (and perhaps something related to TPMS?) Does the tire guy have to do anything when installing just new tires?

    My daughter owns a CR-V and tells me that her local tire place charges a TPMS service fee. What the heck is that?

    The only time reprogramming is required is if you swap rims over. If all you did was have new tires installed on the existing rims they don`t touch the TPMS. If you have two sets of rims...one for summer ans one for winter reprogramming is required.
