Every vehicle from 2008 model year to the present is equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS). If you service tires, you’ll be forced to deal with TPMS. That means that you must invest in a TPMS tool (preferably a combination tool that allows scanning/diagnostics, activating, programming if needed and relearning).
Just like on any vehicles with TPMS that features aluminum valve stems, do not install a chrome or chrome-plated steel valve cap on an aluminum valve stem on a Hummer H2.
