At Chabill’s Tire & Auto Service, whether direct or indirect, a TPMS reset comes standard with every tire purchase to ensure your tires are starting out in the proper manner. If your vehicle uses the second direct TPMS system, ask about our rebuild kit, which includes a new rubber seal, washer, securing nut, valve core and valve stem cap. Not sure which type of TPMS your vehicle has? Just ask your Chabill’s technician.
