Not true anymore.

Believe the Tire Rack or believe the Gummint. Your call.

Actually, having checked the website, they are in agreement. Front tires go straight back; rear tires are X'ed to the front. Take another look; no drive wheels are X'd for front drive.

I'm thinking about some after market rims. Can I get some new transmitters if the rims don't have them? I know I'll have to have the dealership "attune" them. Any idea what the cost is of transmitters if I can get them?

The front wheels are the drive wheels (on a Fit) (i.e. the wheels that make the car go, hence the term front wheel drive), the rear wheels do not drive the car. So the rear tires are X'ed to the front (drive) hubs. I guess I should have said hubs not wheels.

Spread, somehow we are saying the same thing in two different ways. We're doing it right in any case, and, yes, unlike the guy with an old Toronado who had his winters on the rear wheels, I know which end of my Fit has the drive.
BTW, since I don't have the luxury of a lift in my garage, I jack one corner, take off the rim, toss on a winter tire/rim (usually only run in two lugs), and follow around doing the rotation. I finish where I started, and take off the winter. If you don't have an extra set of rims, the spare would do. I do have a fancy schmancy aluminium 'racing jack' and an air gun/compressor...tho' I finish tightening with a torque wrench.
Without a floor lift, it's just too damn hard to get all four off the ground at once...easy on the Jeep, as I just jack up each axle and toss a couple jackstands underneath.

Offtopic, but to answer you question, you can purchase new sensors at about $40 a piece and around $100 for the dealer to reprogram your ecu to recognize the new sensors. If I were you I'd take them out of the stock rims and transfer them over if you're set on keeping the dummy light off.
