Suggest calling a tire store you might use. Ask about this cost. Ask if they have a tool that can read the TPMS ID's electronically. Or if they need to read the code off the TPMS sensor itself.
If needing to read the codes off the sensor, have the store mounting the tires record all the TPMS ID numbers. This would be a good idea regardless.
If you are going to be changing between snow and normal tires yourself. After determining the cost to input the ID's search the internet for the cost of a tool. Over the long run it may be cheaper to buy a tool. Learn how to use it and do the job yourself.
One can also just live with the dash indicators being on. However check with your states vehicle emissions/inspection department to determine if the car will pass inspection if the TPMS warning system is on.
Thank you very much for the info.
