@Rhetoric - regarding the TPMS sensors.

I presume that there is an initial pairing process that has to be done to teach the car about the new sensors.

I'm happy to have the shop do whatever is needed to set them up the first time. But will I have to have them reprogrammed again every time i swap the wheels in the fall and spring?

Nope. A programmer costs <$20 and the process for learning is simple.

The guy at Costco is right, you will have to relearn the tire pressure sensors everytime you swap wheels & tires.

I'd like to know where to get a programmer for $20 to reprogram the tire pressure sensors. The cheapest one I found was $140.

They are all over the internet. Find one for 433 MHz and you’re good to go. This stuff isn’t rocket science and can be done by anyone in their garage.

I'm just stating what it says, I'm not being combative. I found one on Ebay for $10 with free shipping, for that low cost I'll give it a try.
