Yes, but I wish they were better. The government banned them if they rely on detecting change in diameter. Those don't need a battery in the wheel. The only ones allowed are ones that measure air pressure but they have an expensive battery inside the wheel that eventually needs replacing. These costs about $250 plus installing them by removing the tire from the wheel. Bad!

Also TPMS only goes off if there's a 20% deficit so you still should check air pressure.

Yes, and I just got new tires. The tire shop said the TPMS resets itself but I'm not so sure. I'm going to reset them myself.
