Sure you can just swap them over to the new wheels but I am guessing this is for people who want to add a set to their aftermarket wheels so them dont have to be swapping them over. Im for just getting another set but make sure you know what is going on with these as far as registartion numbers are concerned.

I didn't know this... and am bummed. I did the pipe bomb with my Tundra and figured I'd always do it from then on.

If Subaru and Toyota didn't take into account that enthusiasts would want to change to aftermarket wheels and put a system in place that will not allow you to disable TC and ESC, I will roll my BRZ off a cliff. I know how to check my tire pressure, and I don't need a sensor telling me!

Well you do know TPMS's have become standard in many countries today by law. If they had their choice I doubt they would have put a TPMS sensor system on it at all for tis reason.

I have a 2008 S2000 and I ran into the same problem when buying new wheels for it.
My solution for the TPMS was to buy a TPMS scan tool to reprogram my aftermarket sensors that I bought for my aftermarket wheels.

I have an ATEQ VT55 that can reprogram almost any sensor on the market and is the same tool that many dealers use. I have the OBDII version which is needed to reprogram Asian vehicles like Toyota, Subaru and Honda.

The aftermarket TPMS sensors that I bought are the new VDO REDI-Sensor which is designed to be a universal sensor that covers many OEM TPMS sensors and costs way less on Amazon.com. I am sure it will be compatible with the new FR-S/BRZ.

At first I thought the TPMS was stupid too, but one day I got a TPMS light and I discovered that I had a nail in my right rear. A few weeks later the light came back on and I had another nail in my left rear. I was glad to have the TPMS because I would have been stuck with a flat eventually if not for it.

If any of you guys are near the Northern California East Bay area, hit me up and I can help you with your TPMS sensors reprogramming

Hopefully we can use those universal sensors. TireRack now has the sensor listed for the FR-S, at $396 for all four

I installed aftermarket wheels today and left the TPMS's in my stock wheels. No light yet... after 20+ miles. I guess that I'll pull the bulb if it ever comes on.

You should be able to remove the TPMS off the stockers and place them on your new wheels. I had this problem on my evo so I just brought my volks with the new tires to a perfomance tire shop and they swapped the TPMS sensors from the stockers to the volks. The tire shop just charged me for the mounting which was in total $80 . Saves me the $400 on new sensors and a $100 charge to get them calibrated to the car. TPMS isnt cheap break one and you'll have to pay for the sensor $100, valve stem $4, and recalibration $100 .

I installed wheels last night with TPMS sensors in them but have not had them initialized by the dealer. Same story, NO TPMS light yet after about 20 miles so far.

If they're charging you $100 for "recalibration" you're getting ripped off. With the right tools this should take all of about 5 minutes.

Yeah that's how much Mitsubishi will charge. I just swapped the tpms sensors rather than buying new ones and getting them recalibrated.

I have a special order wheel/tire/tpms package in my tire rack cart right now. Looks like the tpms sensors they're saying are compatible with my BRZ are only $66 each. Little easier to stomach, eh?

Hmm. I've been looking at the electrical wiring diagram for the various systems on our cars and it looks like it may be possible to override the TPMS sensors where they plug into the VSC/VDC control module. I may throw the stock wheels back on the car and get out the voltmeter to see if we can simply 'copy' a valid reading from the 4 sensors and then replay this using a simple circuit. I may be way off in thinking that it would be this simple but it'd be nice to be able to cheat the signal rather than getting into CAN BUS hacking.
