    Default Snow tires and tire pressure sensors

    We just bought our new ‘07 CRV EX-L AWD this weekend. An issue I am facing is that of snow tires. We live in North Central Washington State and the tires are needed. A problem I see is finding four tire pressure sensors for a tire/wheel combo – do I just order the sensors from the Honda dealer?

    I am leaning toward the Blizzak’s though the X-Ice’s rated good as well. I will get a set of alloy wheels – don’t want to use black steel wheels like I run on our ’02 Accord.

    Thoughts please…

    The sensors/transmitters are part of the valves. Have you not inquired at your dealer? Available from the parts dept.

    Then you need to take the vehicle in to get the programming done.

    I'm not sure if available in CR-V sizes, but I was runing a set of Dunlop WinterSport M3's on my S2000 last winter and they are an AWESOME tire! Highly recommended!

    Someone posted that when the switched to winter rims without the TPMS sensors, the TPMS light did not go off at all.

    Default Tire sensors and snow tires

    Thanks for all the feedback. I read the previous posts as well. It sounds like I will need the sensors to allow the "electronics" to function.

    Thanks again.

    I guess I missed the update.

    these tpms seem to be more trouble than they are worth. Is it that hard to just check your tire pressure once in a while ? This seems like an option Honda should have skipped.
