TPMS Question

If I have winter tires mounted on my factory/stock wheels, will I have to get the sensors reset? Also I see that tire shops will install a rebuild kit for the sensors, will they need to be reset if they are rebuilt?

You should be fine, my understanding is the batteries last about 10 years or so. The sensors go to sleep a few minutes after you stop to conserve the battery. As long as they don't mess up the sensors during the install you should be okay. Since TPMS sensors are common now you should be safe there though I suspect.
