Although we are in the heat of summer, I took advantage of a closeout sale at Tire Rack and ordered four Michelin X-ICE X13XL winter tires. I got them in 225-45/17 because I felt that a taller sidewall than the 225-40/18's would provide a better cushion during the winter pot hole season. I ordered them mounted on Alutec Ikenu wheels (17x7.5) in Metal Grey. I will take a picture of them on the car when the season arrives.

How do I set the new TPMS to be recognized by my GTN when I install the winter wheels/tires?

When I bought my winter set last year from Discount Tire, they read my OEM wheels' TPMS settings using their calibration tool and cloned them unto the new TPMS on my after-market wheels. So go to your local DT or other tire shop and ask them to do the same. Then toggle through your instrument cluster's menu to the tire pressure display and ensure it reads all 4 tires.

Mine are not "clone able", they are OEM type. I have an ATEQ sensor tool but I need to first get the codes from each sensor. I guess what I need to know is whether or not I have to plug my tool into the OBD port each time I change the wheel/tire set from summer to winter, or if the ECU will just pick up the change by itself.
