TPMS Sensor Warnings?

2223 Views 4 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Jefferios
I would like to run snow tires and rims this winter without the added expense of buying TPMS sensors for them. What will this do as far as lights, buzzers, or continuous chimes while driving because they are not present? Thanks.

It's getting difficult to get tires mounted without TPMS sensors if they were stock with the car. Liability and all that crap. I mounted snow tires for our Camry and didn't put them in. One thing to be aware of with cheap ebay sensors: some of them are old, and that's why they're cheap. The batteries in them last 8-10 years. So you need to get sensors that are fresh, or you may wind up replacing them much sooner that you thought. Batteries are not replaceable. BTW, they have a manufacture date on them.
