2021 CX-5 AWD Turbo Carbon Ed - TPMS sensors?

Wanting to get a spare set of wheels/tires for winter for the 2021 CX-5 AWD turbo carbon edition. Anyone know if I need TPMS sensors and if so, what kind (frequency) should I get? Some Mazda’s do not use sensors and some do.

It is a 315mhz sensor, this is from mine 2020, i bought some cheap aliexpress sensor base on the part # on this sensor.

Just make sure they work with a 2021. The 2020 cars could report individual tire pressures in the MyMazda app, but that's not true for 2021. You only get a low tire pressure warning, and there is no way to determine which wheel is at fault.

That doesn't necessarily mean the TPMS sensor is different in 2021 than 2020. They could be the same and Mazda has decided not to use the individual data. But they could be different too.

Really? That’s one step backward from Mazda.
 
Right. Seems odd. No tire pressure data on the infotainment screen. And if you read the instructions for the MyMazda app, they show one screen for 2020 (with tire pressures) and one for 2021 (without tire pressures). I can confirm that MyMazda doesn't show tire pressures for my car.

Here is the manual, Type A screen shows tire pressures. Type A screen is for 2020, Type B is 2021.

Such a shame. I had individual pressures in my 2006 Acura. I have not had individual pressures since that car. I was hoping as technology got cheaper, it would become a more universal thing. That car also allowed multiple TPMS sensors to be used. Drive <5 miles and the new sensors would be registered. On my WRX I have to load individual sensor addresses into the ECU every winter and summer...
