For the HRv, I'm glad it is indirect. Nothing like having new tires or snow tires put on and the tire shop having to charge you an additional X amount due to needing new TPMS sensors.

My TPS went off the other day. Of course it was when the temperature was 10 degrees and 30 mph winds. My tires were between 22 and 30 psi. Unfortunately I can't see the symbol directly unless I tilt my head down which I have to do to see top of speedometer (50-90 mph). I added air and press reset button. No issues since. Much cheaper than other system and works.

You don't know that it isn't an "oh my god, you gotta pull over now..." emergency until you pull over and check the tire pressures. Happened me a few weeks ago, after I pumped up during a cold snap, then the temperature went up 20°. I pulled over, checked the tire pressures, which were fine, and reset the TPMS warning. On the other hand, I could have had a flat tire.

Our 2009 Fit had the old-style TPMS, which uses battery-powered sensors in the valve stems. I put a piece of black vinyl tape over the light until the next tire change. I drove for 60 years without a TPMS, so I think I can survive a few more.

Question for those who may know. With the HR-V being an indirect TPMS, if I were to change the wheels on the car, not just the tires, all I will have to do is reset the TPMS when I install the new wheels and there should be an issues?

Never had one of these systems, but because it's based on rotational speed, then it shouldn't matter if you have wooden wagon wheels as long as they're all the same size.

A half pound difference isn't enough to trigger a TPMS warning. 30 PSI, on the other hand, is about 10% low. Tire pressures should be checked at least monthly, more frequently spring and fall, when temperatures change.

My 2009 Fit had the old-style battery-powered TPMS valve stems. After about 5 years (at least) one of them failed. I put a piece of black plastic tape over the warning light. When the tires need to be replaced, the tire shop can test the sensors. I'm not saying that TPMS isn't useful, but I drove 50 years without TPMS sensors.

Anyone have issues while in snow or gravel? My 1st Gen MINI Cooper S had the same type of system and it would be triggered if a tire broke loose for long periods of time. I haven't seen it yet in the HR-V......

I'm glad I found this post about the Indirect TPMS system on the Honda HR-V. I was driving back home on a long road trip and suffered a blowout. I put the donut on and found an NTB that was open on a Sunday. They replaced the blown tire but the service tech said there was no TPMS sensor in the rim. So I was concerned that something was missed at the factory but this post explained why there wasn't a sensor to be found. So I have a tire of the same size but by a different manufacturer. If I read your post right, this shouldn't be a problem for the Indirect TPMS system to monitor correctly.

Sucks to hear about your blowout, but to answer your question, it won't be a problem that the tire is a different manufacturer.
