Yet another TPMS Question - best DIY TPMS solution?

2804 Views 8 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  bbottomley
I've searched for some info here but haven't had much luck. What's the best solution for DIY TPMS work? Looks like some folks use ATEQ?

I have a 2013 XT with snow tires on steel rims from Tire Rack. I have the sensor ID codes. They're Schrader sensors as far as I can tell.

I want to get the car's TPMS system to recognize them. Would rather do it myself, but I keep reading some bad reviews of products I've found (on Amazon mostly), so I thought I'd ask the people with the same vehicle.

If I missed a relevant thread, just point my blind *$$ in that direction. :grin2:

Thanks. I'm not sure the snow tire sensors can be cloned but I can try to find out.
As a related question, if the sensor ID codes are not available, as with already mounted tires, what would be needed to read them?
I've seen devices on Amazon (for under $20) that (apparently) read the codes, but I don't know if they're any good.

I have no experience with these systems at all, though. I was just hoping to turn off the dash light without visiting a tire shop or dealer twice a year. The light offends me. :grin2:
