Can the TPMS sensors be used on aftermarket rims? Could they be recycled from OEM wheels?
Advice is appreciated, thanks!

Just be aware...

If you are ordering new wheels with tires mounted from the same place - just buy TPMS from them. A tire shop will charge you the same amount or more to move your TPMS from your 4 wheels to your new ones.

+1, and your stock wheels will sell for more if you leave the tpms on
