I run 2 sets of rims and tires. One set for daily driving and one set for Autocross. Until recently, I have had to run my dd tires with the TPMS warning on and TC off and run my Autocross tires with the OE sensors in them, so that I turn off the TC. I bought the Ateq quick set tool, programmed in the TPMS sensor IDs and plugged it into my ODBII port and viola! TPMS warning stays off regardless of which rims I have on. Wanted to pass this on to my other 9thGen owners.

This could definitely help me out when I purchase my new wheels with summer tires. Thanks!

Does anybody know if you can put OEM Honda sensors on aftermarket wheels? Or if there are any cheaper ones that work with aftermarket wheels?

Hello, I was looking at the same tool and emailed the company before because I have winter and summer tires plus soon an autox set and wanted to solve the TPMS problem. They said basically if I had the sensors all awake and knew the ID's for each sensor that I could put in the new ID's and plug it into the car and it would work. So my question is what do you exactly do to switch from your DD to auto x tires?? Do you need to know all the ID's and how hard is it to get the job done?? If you could give me some details that be great as I soon will be doing exactly what you are and would like some advice. Thank you.

To answer the questions above.....Yes the oem tpms sensors do fit on aftermarket rims. I did have to go to a tire shop to have them read the sensors ID numbers. I had to put them into the quick set tool using my laptop and a cable(included with kit). Now, all I have to do is mount the new tire and wheel combo and drive off. Easy Peasy.

No. You will need sensors in both sets of wheels. Every sensor has its own ID and our Civics can only store 4 ID's in the ECU. So what the tool does is allow you to transfer the ID's from the wheels that are currently off your car and put those ID's in the ECU meaning no more TPMS lights. @Blackwidow, Did your Honda dealer read the ID's for you?? Thank you for sharing your experience and looks like that's the tool I will need. Thank god I don't need the $1,000+ tool

I took both sets of wheels to a local tire shop(Les Schwab) and they read the ID numbers without having to dismount and remount the tires.

That's some awesome news black widow. I emailed about the tool just about 2 weeks ago and was researching about it. So with your experience and comments I don't have to bite the bullet to find out it don't work. Thank you a lot for sharing.
