In the info center they show the truck and a pressure reading beside each tire. I am pretty sure they are wireless, but I did not have time to get up under it and look today. I have not rotated them yet as I have just gotten to 5000 miles

Each tire has it's own coding system. So as you rotate the tires the EVIC recognizes their new location. You don't need to worry about that. Now if you get a flat and toss on the spare, the EVIC will show that there is no information for that particular because the spares don't have TPMS.

From what I read you can only have 4 tires setup for TPMS. If you have winter tires you will need to have them programed with your truck. Or just ignore it for the winter months.

Every car and light truck 2008 and newer has TPMS the newer dodges and alot of other manufacturers are moving to the snap in stlye rubber stemed sensor. These look very simalar to a normal valve stem but they arent. Almost all dodge vehichles do not require a reset of the TPMS system after tire rotations some other brands like chevy do.

The sensors work wirelessly

If you use the TPMS that uses the correct frequency, it should work, but they still get programmed in

Dodge uses a BARTEC Schrader TPMS
