I just put snows on my 09 patriot and changed from 215 65 17 to 215 60 17
now my tpms light is on and I have read some other threads saying other sensors could be off. Did I just screw myself?
Is the dealer going to be unhappy?
I'm a little confused here. Did you buy a new set of wheels with new tires or just new tires on your old rims? If rims are the same, TMPS sensors should have remained in them regardless of your new tires. BTW, new aftermarket TPMS are $140 on tirerack.
I don't think they have to totally remove the tire from the rim to put in TPMS sensors. I believe that they just need to push the side of the tire towards the middle or other side of the wheel where they want to put in the TPMS sensor. But, sensors operate on different frequencies or some such, and your vehicle's computer may need to be introduced to your replacement TPMS sensors by the dealer's computer update person.
