Yes, you'll have to get them rebalanced/mounted. There is no way to get your current TPMS sensors on to the wheels. They should be interchangeable to your new wheels as long as the valve stem is not at some ridiculous angle. The only reason you would need new ones would be if the people mounting/balancing your wheels would happen to break them. However, if they break it, then they should buy it. So I would just get them separately shipped to your house that way it'd be easier to get it all done in one shot.

You could buy another set of sensors and have them installed into your new wheels but they will have to be slightly dismounted and rebalanced. Also you'd have to get the dealership to reprogram your tpms system to read the new sensors. PITA I did it for my SI when I had it.

^ never thought of that. Yeah, you might get another set to have you covered for both sets of rim/tires. Depending on where you live, you might have to based on if you want to switch out rim/tires for seasons.

^ actually you don't have to go to the dealership to reprogram the TPMS sensors. I researched this prior to getting my wheels (bought new sensors) and went to couple forums like the MDX and they found out that you just install it and just drive for few minutes and the computer will read it. I know it sounds ridiculous how the new TPMS doesn't need programming, I was doubting it and I was skeptical, but they were right (MDX guys) and drove away with my new wheels/tires with no problem.

apparently some people didn't know this and they paid the dealership to "program the new TPMS sensors" when the dealership clearly knows that it doesn't require programming. I just want to let you guys know and don't get ripped off (dam dealership)

just a heads up :)

i've dealt with new sensors on 2 separate occasions and the car picks them up after a few minutes of driving. no need to re-program.

my tires on my stocks now are shot so i could put new sensors in those when i buy winter tires for them later on. I wonder how much it will cost to dismount the tire, remount it and do the whole process with switching the monitors around. im trying to save money i just dropped 1500 on the wheels and tires

i picked up a set of brand new sensors from ebay for $70, they're not too hard to find.

If your not too worried about the sensors doing their job, what i did was get a piece of pvc pipe, 2 caps and a valve stem, cap one end drop all four sensors in, take the other cap, put the valve stem through it, then put it on the pipe, fill that pig to 35 psi and toss it in the spare tire well and forget about it. problem solved.
