Question Do tire stores like BIG O' reset tire gauge pressure system?

I got some new wheels and tires, 18x9's to be exact, for my 06' Taco and am probably going to Big O Tires to get them installed and get a 3 inch leveling kit. Now does anyone know if they also work on the pressure gauge sensor as well to match the new wheels? If they do, does that cost extra and do they have to put in new parts for it to work right? I know its easy to check my pressures but that light being on in my dash board will just bug the heck out of me so I would want it done right to where the gauge still works on my Taco.

some wheels, the sensors will fit, some they wont. it just depends really. another option is to make a tube from pvc pipe and keep the sensors in it.....just keep it in the truck and the light will stay off. there is a link around here somewhere!!

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Make sure they know you have a TPMS. They shouldnt charge any more than regular mount and ballance.

I got charge extra for them to be put on my new rims, I think it was like $12 total for a "TPMS kit" which had something to due with replacement valve stems I believe, probably depends on the shop though. It shouldn't be a large amount if they charge anything.

Place by my charges $5 per wheel to change the TPMS. They did state they they put a new valve stem in, nothing else changes.
