The rolling diameter on the snow tires is likely different from your other tires, even if they're the same size. Differences in tread wear and overall design often make enough of a change to trigger it.

I've fixed my post above for the years in question. The change to active TPMS took place some time in 2007, but it may have been spread across the production line.

The cat on your hood gives me the willies. Back in the day, a neighbor's cat apparently took to sleeping under my Vette's hood for the warmth, until it got its tail caught in the fan one cold morning when I fired it up.
