TPMS sensor

I'm looking for some used winter beaters/rims for my Tucson, but most are without TPMS sensors.
Can I just purchase any "cheap" TPMS sensor from eBay or Amazon, and get them mounted with the new tires?

Not "any" cheap tpms, but as long as they are compatible, then yes. Price doesn't matter.

Need to be a bit careful also - I'm not sure about the EU Tucson, but in the USA, the RB Accent used two types of TPMS sensors between 2012 and 2017 - even though they are the same generation and basically the same car ...

How do I know if they are compatible?

Depends where you are buying from.

For the Accent - Hyundai lists different part numbers for the old and the new sensor - make sure you buy the one that fits your car.

RockAuto also lists different aftermarket part numbers for the different cars.

The problem I ran into was that I bought a spare tire when my car was new, so there weren't aftermarket TPMS sensors yet, and I ASSuME'd they would be the same as the previous year since the model hadn't changed.

I also want to put some winter wheels (rim + M+S rated tire) on my Tucson but I'm opting to go without TPMS. There are very conflicting versions on how it is supposed to work and can't afford finding out on my own dime:
  • The dealer tells me If I put sensors in my winter wheels (about $130 per wheel), I still have to come in every fall and spring so they reprogram the readers to the sensors. They say that I have to do this even for Tire Rotation. That's $20 + gas and time
  • Aftermarket solutions like Alcar (about $60) say that they're fully compatible with Hyundai, but the sensors need to be activated and written into the readers at least once (not clear if needed every tire rotation).
  • Ebay lists OEM sensors at about $32 (just checked, there are ) but no clue whether they are picked up by the car automatically or not
  • Online Forums have users who swear that the car either:
    • Picks up the sensors automatically if they are OEM so no need to program them unless they're aftermarket, also no need to do anything for tire rotation
    • Can be put in a "learning/recalibration mode" where it picks up any compatible sensors (OEM/Aftermaket) automatically, for each wheel - so when doing a tire rotation, just need to do a recalibration so it picks up the correct location of each sensor

As you can see, there are a lot of variables and I could not get a straight answer just yet. Since I'm downsizing to 17" rims and using reinforced sidewall tires, I'm hoping it will be enough to go without TPMS during the winter months.

There is a lot of mis-information - even on this forum, and most of the info is on the USA models and possibly not true for EU models.

What I have read and believe ...
  • There is no learning process - the sensors will be read automatically.
  • There are three types of sensors: OEM that do not need to be programmed, Aftermarket that are pre-programmed and don't need to be programmed, Universal aftermarket that have to be programmed at the tire shop to work with a particular model (2016 Accent), but not to a particular VIN.
  • Hyundai makes some odd changes. For example, the 2012-2017 RB Accent are basically the same car, but the 2012-2014 uses one part number sensor and the 2015-2017 uses a different part number, so a 2013 Sensor won't work with a 2016 Accent.

Sounds incorrect, but I don't know for certain. I've rotated my tires and never done anything - unless the tire shop did it for free without telling me, but I doubt it. OTOH ...

If your car doesn't show individual tire pressure, I'm not sure it matters.

If it does (i.e. you can see LF has 32.0 PSI, RF has 35.0), can't you test it yourself - i.e. put your LR tire to 38 PSI or 27 PSI if you usually run 32 psi, rotate it to the LF, and see if the TPMS shows the LR at 38 PSI, or still shows the LR ...

I didn't have the time to actually test myself. I guess I will find out no later than this spring after I rotate my tires (the law forces me to use winter tires between November and April, so each year when I change the summer/winter tires, I rotate them from their previous location).
I'm still kind of on the fence whether to put TPMS sensors on the winter tires, since some new anecdotal evidence suggests some Ebay sensors from Schrader are picked up automatically by the car (at least in EU market) with no need for programming whatsoever.

What would you choose?
  1. Unbranded (missing tag on white part) sensors ($56 for 4) - look like OEM sensors i.e. same model number 52933-C1100 and says "Schrader" on the sensor
  2. OEM packaged sensor ($25 each + $3 shipping, a total of $103) - seem to be the same as above but with tags on the white part and Hyundai packaging
  3. Schrader sensor ($39 each + $18 shipping, a total of $174) - looks like the same thing but a local Tucson owner said he bought exactly these and worked fine on the car.

Normally I'd go for 2nd listing, but it's almost double the value of the 1st for packaging and tags. Of course, if they don't work, there's not much I can do (they say warranty 3 years but who would enforce it?)

Do any of you have any success or failure stories with sensors bought off ebay?

(I feel like I need to add that I don't have a local source for those sensors except for the dealership which charge $120 each, or 3rd party programmable for $50 each).

Personally, I'd go with the second link, but ...
