TPMS...With or without?

Those of you who have went with aftermarket wheels, did you get tire pressure monitors with them or leave them off? With my past trucks I always put factories back on for the winter and run the aftermarket wheels in the summer. This is my first truck with a TPMS and was just wondering if they can be run without the monitors, and if so is it a hassle to train the system back again for the factories when I put them back on in the winter.

Thanks for your time.

It will just give you an error message constantly without them.

It takes a matter of about 1-2 minutes to retrain the sensors.

If it was me I would just buy another set of sensors. So you have them in both sets of wheels.

Is the error message just a small light or the orange window that pops up?

There will be the warning indicator lamp as well as a message in the message center for TPMS system fault.

If you have 1 to 3 sensors not communicating it will display sensor fault. If all 4 are not communicating it will display system fault.

I didn't put the sensors back in, some days the fault comes up some days it doesn't. The message that appears on the message center can be cleared by just hitting the ok button, then it just leaves the little yellow tire indicator on in the bottom right side of the dash. The message center then goes back to normal operation.
