Smile Second Set of Wheels/TPMS Programming Help

Hi. Search>Me , therefore I started this thread to address several concerns I have concerning TPMS sensors. Please direct me to a thread if this has already been covered or help me out if you possess this knowledge.

I have an 08 335i e90 with tpms in my stock 162s. I am currently running iforged swift wheels and am getting sick of the tpms light on my gauge cluster. I am considering disassembling/refinishing/reassembling the wheels and adding tpms in the process. I know I need 90degree tpms adapters and a set of sensors. I wanted to know if I could utilize any used set of tpms from another bmw or only specific ones.

What is the process to program/get my car to recognize a new set of tpms sensors. Can I just get another set of tpms installed and reset it from my car gauge cluster menu (non i-drive) or do they have to be coded? If not, who can do this: Hibdon's, Discount Tire Direct, a BMW dealer? Anyone running iforged wheels with 90 degree adapters and tpms with advice? Just trying to decide if it is reasonable to get a new set of tpms working in my iforged wheels as opposed to taking the ones from my oem wheels.

I appreciate any useful input.
Thanks in Advance!

I too would like to know about this, as I am planning on a new set of wheels for this coming spring.

Here are the steps to reset/register new TMPS:

1. Start the engine but do not drive off.

2. Move turn BC selector (located on signal lever) up or down until the TPMS symbol appears in instrument cluster.

3. Confirm the display by briefly pressing the BC button on the steering column stalk.

4. Press the BC button to confirm selection of tire pressure monitoring.

5. Press and hold the BC button on the steering column stalk for approx. 5 seconds
until the RDW display lights up in the instrument cluster. The tire failure indicator is
now ready for initialization. If no tick is shown in the display, this indicates that the
tyre failure indicator cannot be initialized due to a fault.

6. Release the BC button to conclude initialization.

Once it's been reset, drive a mile or two and it'll register the TMPS sensors.

Thanks! I appreciate it. I will chime back in to update with my success when I'm done.
