Then you have absolutely no need for a TPMS reset. Go to any tire shop. Move the senders over to the new wheels and get your tires mounted.

Yep no need to program anything all your doing is moving the sensors over to different wheels.

Just be forewarned that some after market wheels don’t play nice with Subarus others have had vibration from the aftermarket wheels and ended up sending them back. So do some highway testing right away with it after you get setup

So, I guess just have shop swap out TPMS and install in same location on new set of rims. I.e. right rear old rim -> right rear new rim?

Do the TPMS Auto calibrate to new pressures / volume?

Vibration? These Motegi are hubcentric and Iíll be making sure rings are installed and properly torqued by hand.

I answered your first question right up front in Post #3. No need to even worry about which corner is which. The distributed antenna system will lock on to the strongest signal at each wheel well and post the data on your screen accordingly. Magic!

The sensors read the air pressure present in each tire. Volume (size of tire) is not an issue. Temperature is the only thing you need to be concerned with. Verify that they are at the desired/required pressure when cold.

That's exactly how I get mine done. Go to Tirerack, Tirebuyer, or any of several on-line dealers and look up the shops in your area that will install items that you bring in. They even quote prices. $68 - $80 is pretty typical for a set of 4 built and installed on your car.

In my area Firestone Complete Autocare, Mavis Tire, Monroe Muffler Brake (chains), and Arlington Tire (independent) all will assemble components you bring in, including TPMS sensors. They'll re-register the codes if you need them to do that too.

I know your situation sucks but let's keep things PG, please.

Also, a Wal-Mart will mount and balance the tires for next to nothing.

Have them put the OEM sensors in the new wheel and it will all work.

Down here $100 is more typical and I would gladly pay that. I found local speed shop with new Hunter equipment Iím talking to see how that goes. I have a week or so before rims & tires get here.
