Looking for a second set of TPMS for my winter rims.

I checked rockauto.com a while back and they had them for roughly $40/sensor. I checked earlier today and the search came up blank.

Has anyone purchased any in the past? If so, do you have a part no? Where did you purchase? And any other relevant information that would be helpful.

Thank you

Not sure what prices are like in the states, but it costs about $80 a wheel up here in Calgary. I don't think they are that unique - any reputable tire shop should be able to get it for you.

What happens if you don't install tpms sensors on your winter tires and rims? Will you only have a light on the dash or will you get an audible warning as well? I can live with a dash light but not necessarily a chime reminding me every few minutes.

thanks

Just installed a set of hankook ipike rw11 and alloy wheels from Discount Tire Direct. I did not get the tpms sensors as it was an option for $360 plus taxes.

I installed the tires 3 days ago and no warning lights. This really has me baffled as I was prepared to live with the light on the dash during the winter season.

anyone else install the tires without the sensors experience this non issue?

Well I spoke too soon. My wife just informed me that earlier today the light came on. Not sure why it took so long.

In my case the warning comes on after a certain amount of mileage approximately 10 miles in a trip. Some days I can get to work no warning but, for example if I take my kid to school just as I am approaching work the light comes on. Then it will stay on for several trips (motor starts/stops) and then turn off till the next time you hit the mileage threshold for the warning.
I survived last winter (and go used to the warning message pattern) but, you should check your air pressure regularly.
