If you have a TPMS attached to the valve stems, when changing the tire, is there a wire attached to the inside of the wheel and connected to the stem, or can the tire be removed without worrying about damaging the TPMS?
Also, when buying new tires, does the tech need to reconnect any wires? Or does it work another way?
Assuming the sensor doesn’t fail, is it something that should work normally for the life of the car, or do the sensors have to be replaced each time you get a new tire? (They usually put new stems when you buy a set of tires, but I doubt those stems have any TPMS built in. Based on this, I assume they must work differently than I am picturing)
