They're guesstimate readings. You still really need to manually check/visually view your tires on some sort of regular basis.

Some cars will disable the stability control if TPMS sensors aren't found. From the posts I've read, it sounds like the Niro won't do that - but I'd like to confirm. I'm interested in getting a dedicated set of winter tires/wheels and TireRack doesn't have compatible sensors.

Agreed. I don't like the fact that the car needs to be driven some before it'll give a reading. I know this is typical of most TPMS and maybe I'm old school, but I've always been told its best to take readings on a cold tire.

The car only needs about a 1/4 mile, if that, to get a reading. The tires do not heat up in this short distance. I believe this is done because the sensors do not start transmitting until a certain number of rotations to make the batteries last longer. Basically they go into sleep mode and then wake up when the car is driven.

$60 was about what I was quoted. Just got my Niro two weeks ago and already went looking for a second set of rims and snow tires.
