I don't know exactly how the TPMS works on the Forte's, but some vehicles have a monitor in the ABS system that only monitors the rotations of each tire and report a problem if there's a difference in any one tire. Other vehicles have a sensor in each wheel that actually reads the pressure in each tire. Most of these vehicles have a display that you can select and see the pressures in realtime. Obviously the later version would come into play if you were looking at aftermarket wheels. Just a guess, but since Kia's are relatively inexpensive and the TPMS is only a warning feeling is we have the former type of system.

Correct, the TPMS will let you know when you have a low tire, you just have to figure out which one it is. There is a sensor in each individual wheel though.
