TPMS-sorry another question...

Wondering about interchangeability with these. Is it the frequency only or are there other factors? Considering wheels and tires with sensors that work with a 2002 WJ that are 433 mgHz like ones on my 2012 JK. They do fit 2012 rubi wheels as that's what they are run on.

Wanting two sets wheels and tires, one winter set up and one summer but not the big expense of new TPMS. Other options? Procal will effectively shut it off? I read in another thread it's very easy to remove them by airing down the tire and pushing away from bead and removing. Is it feasible to swap them back and forth since tire does not need to be removed?

Get the procal, set your TPMS to zero and then simply do your due-dilligence as a responsible automobile operator/owner and check your tire pressure on a regular basis. TPMS is marketed for the general population who doesn't have the time, inclination, or know-how to check their tire pressure often and it is also set to create wind-fall profits for dealers and tire retailers alike. TPMS isn't necessary if you have more than half a brain.

So I assume then that this is a 100% fix of the problem? I do check my pressures weekly with all my cars, and use my turn signal unlike 70% of the population or more.
