At least in the US we have indirect tpms. Car measures tire rotation. If one wheel is spinning faster than the others (smaller effective diameter) it assumes that this is due to reduced air pressure. Our cars do not report actual tire pressure.Simply sharing here. Hello. I am a new 2022 xc40 Recharge owner here. Our Volvo dealer in Unionville, Ontario (so far a decent experience) helped us with a set of new volvo 19 inch rims and 4 matching "Michelin X-Ice Snow SUV" winter tires (the summer rims and tires were swapped out before we picked it up). The four tires are all 235/50/19. I will check in the spring but the dealer STRONGLY recommends we ask them to swap (a cost of ?) tires each season, to not mix up their position. Something to do with TPMS sync and every wheel being different? i am not clear on this one unless simply tracking rotational direction and the rims are actually different. I understand the TPMS may need to be pointed to the new rims. Long time Volvo owner here (@2004 v70r as well and many before). New to tpms systems.
1. Do I need Volvo to resync the TPMS, or will it self align in time? Any processs to do this myself, as it is much more convenient and faster for me to do it myself than make an appointment, drive there, etc. An earlier thread mentioned resetting, but not sure of the steps. I self store my wheels/tires at home and have never had anyone change them in my life unless needing a tire repair at the same time....and Yes, I set the torque correctly (what is it for this car btw as I have not found this info yet). I have staggered winter tires in 19 inch diameter to match the summer setup. Hakka r3suv, so no tire rotation is possible without dismounting the tires (not going to happen).
2. Any other reason you can think of for needing to go to a dealer to swap them? It is less a question of cost and much more about time.... as said earlier 20 min vs at least 3 hrs round trip (excluding washing removed wheels before storing them which does add another 20 min of my labour regardless).
Thanks in advance.
