Anyone have there tires rotated yet ? Is this still required since the truck has allwheel drive ? I assume the tire monitor sensors will have to be reprogrammed as well.

SJ, if your like me you will wear your front tires out first, I rotate them between 3k and 5k miles, I go front to back, and the next rotation I go left front to right rear, and right front to left rear, and then the next time front to back. Yes when you rotate your tires you have to reprogram your sensors, the step are in the owners manual.

How much LB-FT do you torque your 22" tires to on your 2007 Escalade?

Here is the relearn

Resetting the TPMS Identification Codes
Each TPMS sensor has a unique identification
code. Any time you rotate your vehicleís tires
or replace one or more of the TPMS sensors,
the identification codes will need to be matched
to the new tire/wheel position. The sensors
are matched to the tire/wheel positions in the
following order: driverís side front tire, passengers
side front tire, passengers side rear tire, and
driverís side rear tire using a TPMS diagnostic
tool. See your GM dealer for service.
The TPMS sensors may also be matched to each
tire/wheel position by increasing or decreasing
the tireís air pressure. If increasing the tireís
air pressure, do not exceed the maximum inflation
pressure indicated on the tireís sidewall.
You will have two minutes to match the first tire/
wheel position, and five minutes overall to match
all four tire/wheel positions. If it takes longer
than two minutes, to match the first tire and wheel,
or more than five minutes to match all four tire
and wheel positions the matching process stops
and you will need to start over.
The TPMS sensor matching process is
outlined below:
1. Set the parking brake.
2. Turn the ignition switch to RUN with the
engine off.
3. Using the DIC, press the vehicle information
button until the PRESS
V TO RELEARN
TIRE POSITIONS message displays.
4. Press the set/reset button. The horn will
sound twice to indicate the TPMS receiver
is ready, and the TIRE LEARNING ACTIVE
message will display.
5. Start with the driverís side front tire.
6. Remove the valve cap from the valve
cap stem. Activate the TPMS sensor by
increasing or decreasing the tireís air
pressure for five seconds, or until a horn
chirp sounds. The horn chirp, which make
take up to 30 seconds to sound, confirms
that the sensor identification code has been
matched to this tire and wheel position.
To decrease air-pressure out of a tire you
can use the pointed end of the valve cap,
a pencil-style air pressure gage, or a key.
7. Proceed to the passengerís side front tire,
and repeat the procedure in Step 6.
8. Proceed to the passengerís side rear tire,
and repeat the procedure in Step 6.
9. Proceed to the driverís side rear tire, and
repeat the procedure in Step 6.
10. After hearing the confirming horn chirp for
the driverís side rear tire, the horn chirp
will sound two more times to signal the
tire learning mode is no longer active.
Turn the ignition switch to LOCK.
11. Set all four tires to the recommended
air pressure level as indicated on the Tire
and Loading Information label.
12. Put the valve caps back on the valve stems
The spare tire does not have a TPMS sensor.
If you replace one of the road tires with the spare,
the SERVICE TIRE MONITOR message will be
displayed on the DIC screen. This message should
go off once you re-install the road tire containing
the TPMS sensor.

This is ridiculous. Why couldn't GM come up with a more user friendly way to do this?

Rotating tires is now going to be an all day affair.

It seems that way looking at the process, but I have done it 2-3 minutes after the first time.

I was going to buy one of these, but I know them GM would change something so it would be usless then.

$300!!!

I think I'll take the time to learn the relearn.

Does that make sense??????????

That is the tool the dealers use, and I could not get one of my 07's to relearn after I switched to my winter 18's, I when to my local dealer's service, the service manager walked outside with me and did it for me in less than a minute, never met the guy before, and would not talk any money for doing it

This procedure does not work for my - I get it into learning mode then it will never beep twice, and times out. The sensor on that tire works and changes pressure readings in the DIC. Any hints? I have tried lowering or increasing the pressure.
