    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.

    Discount tire just charged my friend $7.50 per TPMS as a calibration fee. I told her that was a B/S fee.

    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.
