Question on Tire Rotation with TPMS/8th Gen...

I searched the forum, but did not come up with any hits that answered this question. Is there anything special that needs to be done when performing a tire rotation due to the TPMS? I see all these tire places that charge extra for cars equipped with TPMS. Thanks.

Charging more for a tire rotation with TPMS. You have to be kidding me. Depending on the system you would only have to reset the system to let it relearn the position of the sensors, but for the accord I don't think that is needed. Just simply rotate.

It doesnt matter with our cars, but with some cars (gm??) the system has to be reset each time the tires are rotated. I believe on those cars the TPMS sends each tire PSI to a display in the cars dashboard.

I've already done mine once. Nothing other than rotating tires

If someone charges extra for rotation on Accord w/TPMS they are crooks!!

Page 297 in the manual talks about the TPMS system. Our cars have the direct method using the valve stem as opposed to the indirect method using sensors in the ABS system. It is the indirect method that needs the "relearning". No relearning fee is appropriate for our cars nor is tire rotation an issue. If we change tires now or later, special attention must be paid to reusing the valve stem and TPMS monitors. I think everything I just said is correct..I'm not trying to be the expert here.

Partially correct. The new Accords don't need to be reset, but some other vehicles do. As someone else said, it's the ones with id'd sensors so the vehicle can tell exactly where the tire is.

On some of these vehicles, as long as you follow the manufacturer's rotation pattern (almost always a front-to-back and one axle is crossed depending on FWD or RWD) all you have to do is a "task" of some kind to tell the vehicle computer (similar to resetting your maintenance minder.) If you deviate, and say do only front-to-back without the cross, then a special device is needed to reset the system (expensive piece of equipment.) Others require a reset every-time.

Smaller shops will charge, and for the most part I don't blame them. That device capable of doing most cars is not cheap. The dealers of those vehicles even charge for this. The only place I know that doesn't for sure is Sears. I think most affiliated (corporate) Firestone shops also do it for free, but don't quote me on that. I'm not sure about Goodyear corporate shops.

Pony up the $15 for the rotation and $11.25 to $13.99 (depends on sidewall aspect) for the balance on each tire at Sears. For about $70 or so once you'll get lifetime rotations and balances for free until you wear those tires out. You can go in every 5K-7K miles and get it done. A lot cheaper in the long run than 8 to 6 trips for the same thing at Wally World. Even at 5 times its cheaper.

5 trips to Wally World for rotate & bal (assuming they don't charge the TPMS rate): 12.5x4=50, 1.5x4=6. 6x5=30. 50+30 = 80. $80 total for 5 trips

If they do charge the TPMS rate: 12.5x4=50, 6.5x4=26. 26x5=130. 50+130= 180. $180 for 5 trips. ((If they charge the reset fee, add another $100 for a total of $280))
