Question Thinking of changing wheel - TPMS sensor

Hi guys,

Thinking of changing my wheels from the 19" standard on my M340i to the 20" 795M wheels. What do I need to do with the TPMS sensors? Can they be transferred out of my current wheels to the new ones? Is it expensive/hard to get new sensors?

Thanks

yes they can be easily switched - any tire shop will be able to do this for you

You could also get aftermarket sensors. They're cheap and work perfectly normal.

One thing to consider is the cost to buy the rims, tire and sensors, separately and taking them shop to balance and install on vehicle compared to the summer tire package that already includes everything assembled together where you just mount the wheels to the vehicle.
