Just got my General Altimax Arctics yesterday. I'm going to suggest Jimmy John's get all their tires from you, because the shipping was freaky fast. Now I need to get them to the dealer to get the sensors registered, and once they're on, I'm sure this winter will be snow free. They're sitting in my bedroom at the moment and smell just like tires bought in a brick-and-mortar, so that worry is over. But now I'm wondering: would it be possible to buy multiple sets of TPMS sensors all with the same codes? Like the way Lowe's sells locksets all keyed alike. Seems like that could be a little cheaper than buying programmable sensors.
If not, can you recommend a good tool for do it yourselfers? I was looking at one from ATEQ, but it looks like it only stores two codes. Ultimately, I'd like to end up with a set of snow tires, a set of off-road tires, and a set of 3-seasons I could swap out myself.
And if you could arrange for 1-2 decent snow storms this year, that'd be nice, too.
