Great info - my GP has the indirect system, so this is all new to me. I was reading a car review in Automobile magazine and they mentioned a price for changing summer tires to winter tires, and there was an additional cost for remounting the tire sensors, but I can't remember the cost.They are attached to the valve stem and the attached link will tell you more about them and also show you what they look like.
Yes. It will alert and indentify which tire is low and will also alert you when the TPM System itself is not functioning properly.Here's a question - with the Malibu system, does it warn you if one of the tires dips below a certain psi? Or it just lists each tire pressure and you have to monitor that for problems?
I take it you have a 2nd set of wheels with your winter tires???I've been told that it is part of the valve stem which is one of the reasons why tire change rates are going to go up. It is more time consuming to transfer these pressure monitors for a tire change. When you have your tires changed twice a year like I do (for snow) I hope the price doesn't increase too much!
I don't yet. I haven't found a good set of 18" snow tires, so I may need to buy new rims and tires; with that said I'll need a second set of monitors. Either way this is going to be expensive.I take it you have a 2nd set of wheels with your winter tires???
I don't see any reason to remove the valve stem just for a tire change.
I have a friend in Texas with a new Chevy truck and has two sets of wheels and tires. He put monitors in his spare wheels and said it did not cost much.I don't yet.
