When tires are changed out, do the sensors in each tire need to be replaced as well or can they be reused?

to add to your question - are the valve stems separate from the pressure sensors? Do they get replaced if the sensors are retained?

The sensors do not need to be replaced. You will need to follow the procedure in the owner's manual for the computer to relearn which sensor is at which location so the monitoring system reports it correctly.

Well here is the thing, i got a nail awhile back and ran up to walmart to have the tire patched.(only place open) they claim that they are not allowed to re pack sensors and would have to replace it(they didnt have mine anyway). just wound up plugging the tire

If they can't be resued when changing out the tires, that adds about another $200 or so for a set of 4?

For all the people who upgraded to aftermarket rims or a new size, were you required to buy the TPMS sensors again?

No, when I bought the GM Accessory RV022 rims, they reused the sensors.
