tps and new rims

ive been a ford guy and ive recently come to the toyota world, ive never had to deal with tire pressure sensors! (had them on a 07 mustang gt, but that thing is what convinced me to go toyota)

I got my new rims and the OEM tpms wouldn't work on my rims... It was $250 extra to get that issue resolved.. I chose to have the extra $250 in my pocket.

Almost all aftermarket rims these days accept the tpms from your stock alloys.

Should work fine, any decent shop should be able to transfer them. I was told by numerous people they wouldn't work in my new wheels, sure enough they did and they work fine.

Calibration fee, or rebuild fee? They don't need to be recalibrated if you are using the same sensors.

Yup, most places will charge about $7 for TPMS, while they charge about $3 for rubber valve stems.
