In some cases, it is advisable to have the tyre swap done professionally in a garage. For example, if your car has a direct Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). In this case, sensitive sensors are built into your tyres which measure the actual air pressure and transmit the values directly to the control unit. If the air pressure is too low, the system will tell you that the pressure needs adjusting. If you have a direct TPMS on board, then you should only have your tyres changed by a professional. They will check the sensors in the tyres and ensure that the wheels are changed correctly.
If you drive with an indirect tyre pressure monitoring system – that is, without sensors – then you can change tyres with a TPMS system yourself. In this case, you only have to abide by the instructions given in the operating manual. You can change your tyres by yourself without any problems if you follow our instructions.
However, because tyres cannot be balanced in a home garage, it is a good idea to have a professional do this. In addition, you should note whether your tyres are directional or asymmetric, because this affects how they must be fitted. When in doubt, it is best to get advice from a professional garage.
