Two sets of wheels setup for TPM at same time?

I'm considering buying another set of OEM wheels and am wondering how the TPM system works. Can I have both sets of wheels "synced" to the car all the time so I can easily switch between them and the TPM system will continue working regardless of which set of wheels is on the car?

TPMS system does not know wheel location

So, I assume that the BMW TPMS system does not know the location of each TPMS sensor/wheel. Therefore, the BMW OBC does not need to be coded.


I watched a video of a TPMS sensor replacement on a Toyota Corolla. The Corolla OBC needed to be coded for each TPMS sensor and it's location.

Is this the case for BMWs?

Or if you've got a non-US market car, the tire pressure monitoring is done through the ABS/TCS system, and thus (happily!) there are no in-wheel sensors. Woot!

With a US car you need to reset the TPMS when you swap the wheels.

I just swapped to the winter tires and was surprised to see that the TPMS didn't complain about not seeing the sensors. I had to back up to the end of the driveway so they TPMS couldn't see the summer tires sitting in the garage before I could reset it to use the winter tires.
