Yer killin' me...I follow you right up to the point of getting a spare TPMS computer. But instead of focusing on that I like the idea of aftermarket sensors with the same code (any ideas on what/where those are?).Tire dealers can read the computer and program in the new codes. Be sure to save the old codes to be re entered in the spring. You can get a spare tpms computer so you don't have to pay for reprogramming.
There are some aftermarket sensors that you can code with your existing codes so if you buy them, they get programmed to your codes and then you don't have to reprogram your truck when you change wheels
The first thing to know is that some of us in snowy climates have two sets of wheels; winter set on in November and summer set on in April.Why don't people just switch the TPMS sensors to their new wheels and tires when they get them. That's what I did and it seems a hell of a lot easier than doing the steps in this write up. Is there a problem or something I'm not aware of or something with switching them over? Mine have worked fine
