I just logged into Advance, and a 25% instant coupon popped up along with a 'suggestion' that I buy right now the TS508KMV1 for $319.99 minus 25%, plus tax with free shipping or local pickup. About $260 at my sales tax rate. Too bad I already have one!

Ok so I want to make sure I understand this, I have read a bunch of the threads. I'm buying a set 2017 WRX wheels with TPMS on them. I plan to move my current tires over to the WRX wheels and install them my 2019 Outback. What I understand from reading is that the sensors on the WRX wheels are no good to me. Can I just move the sensors from my stock wheels over? When I get winter tires for the stock wheels can I just order a set of sensors and clone them to the stock sensors? If so what sensors can be cloned?

So.... Some Impreza based models moved over to the 433 mhz system prior to the 2018 Outback. I'm finding conflicting data on whether the 2017 WRX falls into that class. It's possible that the wheels you are getting might have compatible sensors, but I can't say for sure right now.

By far, the easiest and most sure way to avoid issues would be to do as you suggested and just move your 2019 Outback sensors over to the WRX wheels. Your Outback won't even know any change has occurred, and you'll drive happy this summer with no further work required.

Once this gets done, please post the Schrader/Subaru part number (28103xxxxxxx) of the sensors from the WRX wheels. They should also clearly say 315mhz or 433mhz on them. If they are suitable for use on your Outback, you can take the $100 saved on new sensors and buy an ATEQ Quickset so that you can swap between the two sets of 4 hex ID codes winter & summer. ATEQ told me in a call two weeks back that they do support the newer 433 mhz system with their latest software update.

If the WRX sensors are not compatible, take the $100 and put it towards getting cloned sensors made to match the set from your 2019 Outback for your winter package. We can talk about options here another day. Several others have successfully done it using an Autel TS-508 and MX-1 sensors. There's no good reason that it shouldn't be possible with any interchangeable sensors (like Schrader) & tools (like Bartec), as long as the tools are updated with the latest software to work with a newer Subaru.
