I'm not sure about the later years but earlier model years use an indirect system for TPMS. The car uses the ABS sensors to determine if a tire is low so there's no need to worry about the sensors.

I definitely prefer TireRack and DiscountTireDirect for making wheel, tire, and wheel+tire package purchases.

There are precious few tires available in our OEM 18" size so I compiled a list of tire sizes that are close to the same overall diameter as OEM.

there probably would be check engine light, but can you run winter wheel
without tpms.
oh by the way 2019 sport awd.
would love to get a hold of 18" oem's, but way too expensive.

thanks

Can confirm 2019 and up have individual tpms sensors in the wheel like usual cars, probably maybe some late model 18s even depending on the region.

I guess Mazda finally figured out that the indirect systems are, uh, crap. Cheap but they really don't work very well.

I want to go the opposite direction so I can get some sweet KO2s, but will probably end up with the slightly taller Yokohamas on mine. I have a 2019 with 18s so I have the proper individual TPMS.

Interesting, I've been pondering doing the reverse as I've been told the 16" give a better ride (not as aggresive on the bumps, speed humps and potholes) and are quieter compared to the 18". M'mm

Oh, and a greater choice of tyres for 16" and cheaper compared to the 215/50/R18
Was also pondering going up a size on the 18" to 215/55/R18 to increase the side wall height for the same reasons & again, a greater choice of tyres.
The increase will probably bring the speedo closer to being accurate as well, reads 2km/h lower than actual.
