The late 13's and all 14's go off of the wheel speed sensors for tpms info. If you switch wheels and tires I believe you will need to go into your vehicle info/settings and reset you tire light. This will reset the system for the new tires. No sensors in the wheels themselves. Easy peasyok...i'm thinking i understand this enough to screw it all up. the 2014 civic's (my model) don't have in the wheel tpms sensors...but some other sort of system that is attached to wheel speed sensors and some other techy stuff that i don't understand.
how do i go about putting on 1) 8th gen stock wheels with winter tires or 2) aftermarket wheels with winter tires without tpms issues. my last two cars, i just put on the winter tires and drove around with the idiot light on the dash. not a big deal to me as i religiously check tire pressures.
i went to the alligator sens-it site and got an education on how great their's are, but didn't see where to purchase them.
i'm getting ready to buy something for the winter...but, now, i'm all confused.
