What Did You Do About Your TMPS Sensors?

I'm looking at buying new rims and tires for my 2010 cobalt xfe and was wondering what you guys did about your TMPS sensors? Can I remove them and put in my new set? If I can remove them, how do I know they will fit before I buy?

yes you can put a new set, you will know because wherever you buy the tires from will give you the right set.

You can swap over your existing ones or buy a second set of them.

I bought a second set. That way I can swap between my rims and steelies for winter and just relearn the TPMS with no hassles.

I just run without them, didn't feel like pulling the censors from my steelies, and the wheels and tires I bought were already mounted without censors. I even work at a shop and it would not take long to install censors but I'm lazy and I carry this really cool thing called a tire pressure gauge.

i bought a second set from schram auto online for like $80 and went to napa for the rebuild kit which included the sensor nuts and everything for install for under $10 bucks and had a local shop install them for like $60 bucks...personally its worth being able to read the tire pressure and not having the annoying yellow warning sign

Before getting my winter tires, I purchased a set of year-old take-off's from ebay. I know they weren't off of a Cobalt, but the compatibility list was posted on the listing and included my car. $60 shipped, installed for free with my new tires. Been a year now and still working perfectly.
