My cars do not have this system.
The sensors for cars with this system, can add up quite a bit, costing anywhere from $75.00 - $100.00 each. Those who need winter tires will probably go without adding them to the car, if they have a complete set (tires/rims)
Well there is good news for you guys/gals as there is a company Schrader Valves that sells aftermarket sensors as low as $30.00 each, for many makes and models.

I have them on one vehicle but I wish they would improve the technology. Apparently the batteries powering the TPMS will only last a few years and then you have to replace the whole unit. That can get expensive.
