What would happen if I put tires on my 02 without
any senors? I have a chance to get a nice set of rims
and tires but there are no senors.
Thanks in advance for any info.

Nothing will happen! With that said, you will get a TPS malfunction error on the DIC, but with an 02, you can program that out of the PCM so the DIC error message never comes up, but until then the error message might drive you nuts.

Silver98 is right on.
You'll have to hit the reset button with every startup until you either install sensors or turn off the feature.

I bit the bullet and bought 4 new sensors and had them
installed in the new wheels. After reprograming the sensors
everything is working fine.
Thanks for the info.
