    Hey does anyone out there know about the factory sensors? I bought some wheel/tires that already had sensors in them how do they work? Or do I need to remove the factory sensors from my wheels? Thanks!!!

    No. Most tire shops have the equipment to reprogram the TPM computer. Call around for the best price.

    I wonder what happens if you take them out of your old wheels put them in the new and just run the old ones without the sensors in the winter. . would the light stay on or go off? i imagine they got it set up so if you dont have them it stay on to agrivate the piss out of you until you buy new ones
