    TPMS for 2nd set of wheels / tires?

    Hi I have a 2021 Toyota RAV4. I am getting a second set of steel wheels to mount snow tires for the winter. Do I need to purchase TPMS? What happens if I don't? Will the dash light come on? Just curious what happens to a 2021 RAV4 with the absence of TPMS sensors? Thanks

    Snow Tires how much narrower makes a difference?

    the 195/65r15 and 195/60r16 are both 7.7" wide so I don't see a need to buy a set of 15" wheels, yes the tires are a bit cheaper but not worth the cost of a second set of wheels etc.

    thanks but the 195/65r15 is the same with as the 195/60r16 and this way I can use my current wheels. what might be better is to run 185/60r16 which are even narrower.

    Where to purchase set of new steel wheels

    Thanks, the stock wheels are 17 x 7 and the stock tire is 225/65/17, A minus 1 would be a 16 x 6.5 wheel and the tire would be 225/70/16. This is only .1 inch shorter and the same width so not worth it. Plus I would need to install hub rings and also 225/65/17 is a much more common size with...
