your TPMS sensor is an easy fix if you have your old ones. I swapped mines out to my new wheels and tires.

Transfer the OEM valve stems to your new rims. Re-calibrate and thats it.

yes "TPMS" is a great system is a good system to keep you safe... but for everything else it SUCKS! if you dont have a keyless entry you have to go threw then info buttons on your steering wheel and go around the car from tire to tire reseting the pressure till the TPMS computer relearns everything....<<and thats with every 7,000 recomended tire rotation.. as long as the rims are in the same spot.. you can just adjust the pressure and you'll be ok...

swap your TPMS sensors from your factory wheels to your aftermarket ones( sensor is located where the valve steam usally is)

then follow the instructions in your OM to reset your light
