New Tires/Rims w/TPMS

Hello everyone,

I am going to change my stock tires+rims on my 2012 Titanium Focus that is equipped with TPMS. Once I remove my stock tires+rims and install my new winter tires+rims with new TPMS, would I have to do some sort of reset in order for TPMS to work properly? I've tried searching online, but I am unable to find my answer. I am planning to buy my winter tires and rims from either discounttiredirect.com or tirerack and both of them offer TPMS sensors that can be installed with my tire/rim package.

Your help/feedback/suggestions is much appreciated.

I've seen a thread like this before, but anyways i beleive from what i had read beforw that you can get tire rack or what be it to instal tpms but a ford dealership has to do something with the comp to get it to work properly. I'm not a big help,but its a good direction. Ask your dealer.

you can save money by re-using the same sensors. they're only held on the valve stem by a torx screw. just buy new valve stems for your new wheels and save money because new sensors aren't exactly cheap...

Tirerack will provide a reset tool for an extra $45 but when I got mine from Discount locally they just reset them at the store.
