Update from Germany. Finally got the extra set of wheels and tires mounted up. No issue with the TPMS sensors. As others mentioned, it started reading pressures after a few minutes of driving.

Can;t speak to your tires, but I bought the TPM sensors for each tire at Costo. Install and programming costs were half the price of the dealer.
You are supposed to replace these sensors periodically, I can't recall how often.

Not sure if your comment was directed at me or not but basically here in Germany the issue is a non-issue. The TPMS sensors were always the 433 MHz type and tire places don't have any issue cloning them and getting you up and running. I just wanted to post an update in case the 2-3 other non-US/Canada members might want to know The sensors I got were from Reifen.com (the largest online tire retailer in Germany) and they shipped clonable sensors with my order. The installation cost ~$30 as the tires were already mounted to wheels with the sensors inside. Cost of the sensors was €130 (~$150).

If anyone cares the tires are Blizzak DM-V2's on 17x7" Borbet W's.
