How to remove tpms from rim?

I want to build the pipe bomb, and need to remove the sensors. The tires are already off. Is there a special way to take them off? My preliminary inspection shows they are on pretty firm, so I wanted to check with you professional tacoma owners on how to properly take them off, just in case yanking it right off is not the correct way better safe than sorry!

just pull your hvac controls out (ac controls) grab the big box behind them, cut the red wire, and splice it into the blue wire... puts power on the TPMS circuit and makes the system read correctly, eliminating a need for sensors anywhere.... best part is it shuts the light off and is permanent

Really? Dont need to do any other cutting? Shweet. Oh and i did go look at the rims closer and just tried unscrewing the metal sleeve, and voila! Figured it out.
