You can train them by position to the BCM if you like, but, since our cars do not display separate pressures, doesn't make much of a difference.
I keep mine in the garage. If you park near the tires, the TPMS will reset to the signal of the tires each day. If you don't drive more than thirty miles +/- the TPMS light wont come on. Drive more than thirty miles and it will. I drove for 4 months before having to calibrate the winter wheels.
My Brother doesn't even bother with TPMS on his winter wheel package. Drives all winter without having the warning light come on. Guess what? That's right, his summer wheels are in the garage.
By the way the term is "ad nauseum"
