tire preesure sensor

I am new to this site, and to the 2010 EVo MR Touring, but I've got 17 years driving VR4's, so I've had good experiences with Mitsu.

I'm about to mount the winter rims and tires, for the rain and mountain driving I do outside Seattle. The new set has the TPS installed, with the note that they must be iniialized by the dealer. True? Any other ideas other than ignoring it, or spending $210 a year when I go back and forth.

there are a couple options, ditch the tpms on your winter wheels and tires. Pay the dealer to initialize them, or you can make a pressurized pipe to store the sensors in and keep in the rear of the trunk so you dont have to look at that pesky light.

use pvc pipe, make sure you have a way of pressurizing the sealed pipe like a valve stem and fill it to the necessary psi then put where your spare tire is and call it a day.

Thank you. I've got another car that will be a great solution for too, when I dismount the tires

You can use a small piece of soft plastic or harder rubber as a spacer and stick in between two sensors and zip-tie them together and throw em in you trunk or glove box. The sensors work on pressure exerted on them by the air in the tires so you'll have to fiddle around until you get the right pressure so that your light goes away.

Or you can do like i ended up doing and sucking it up for the 4 months and save yourself the trouble and the cash. Put the sensors in your good wheels.
