Put my winter tires on yesterday and noticed the same thing, took it to the store and back home, then back out for a drive with the family (since it was sunny in NB and not too cold). After at least 20 km of city driving, it came on, flashes at first and then stays on. Don't worry, it will come on...

the law requires it to come on within 20 minutes of driving and after that flash for a minute and stay on at each start up

do your new rims and tires have tpms installed? maybe they put them in when you bought the tires.

I would not "worry" about it as you can see if your tires are going flat (just perform a daily check to be sure), but to me it sounds like the system is not functioning correctly on your car, that is the part that would worry me.

It's nice that when the techs don't have an answer for a problem, it is always "Don't worry about it" and then proceed to tell a story about the same problem that happens to someone they know. He should get your car in and check the system.

i'm not about the low tire, what i'm worried about is the system not working as intended and i'm getting the ****'s end of a stick, **** it i'm going up there now to see wtf is going on.
