I always thought you needed a TPMS tool to reset the position of the sensors once rotated. At least that's how it was on the Corvette, the tire shop I used didn't remember the position of the wheels when changing tires (front left/right got swapped) and the OnStar report showed a low tire pressure on the front right tire when the front left was actually low. The dealer had to reset this with a TPMS tool and the horn honks when the sensor is registered. Not sure if this is different on the Sparks.

hey don't use TPMS.It not suites you although you can try it by yourself easily.There are no any complications.
At least in New York, a tire shop cannot (legally) mount and balance your tires if your TPMS system is non-functional. So I ended up purchasing a second set of TPMS sensors when I swapped wheels and a TPMS reset tool. Also, you may not pass inspection if your "Service TPMS" light is on.

Having winter tires installed just got more complicated

Spark with 'run flat' tires?

Hi,

I have been trying to find a donut spare for my 2013 but the bolts are too short for most spares. One tire shop owner said (over the phone) that these might be run-flat tires and okay to drive until I could get them repaired.

I make a loooooong trip across the desert 2 or 3 times a year, so having discovered that I have no spare is kinda "harshin' my mellow, man."

Are these 'run-flats'? Does anybody know?

Thanks!

M
