Welcome to the forum. Sounds like a nice ride. You should post up some pics and stick around awhile.

there's a way to do it through the DIC. i use a calibration tool at work and don't really know any other way since my car doesn't have tps. some of the guys here know how to do it the easier way.

When you say GM chrome wheels do you mean like mine? Pictures of my car in vehicle showoff below my signature.

just swap over the tpms over to the new wheels or jus get ones that go with those wheels. then use a scanner to reset the system. it's all something the dealership can do.

im pretty sure ours are the bands that go around the inside of the wheel. if the valve stem wont flick (stiff) then its just the valve stem type sensor.
