sorry for the bump, didnt wanna make a new post.ummm... It was easy i used stock Wheels as a mod too.. I went with the RSX ones tho.
What you need to do is just switch the sensors to the new wheels when you're mounting your new tires.
yea, its that simple. just take the wheels/tires to a shop and have them swapped to the new wheels. done.sorry for the bump, didnt wanna make a new post.
but is it legit just taking out the tpms sensor from one wheel(lx hubs) and puting it into the new aftermarket ones? Some one wanna explain? haha

plenty more info here:
replacement parts kit price?New sensor replacement parts are needed whenever:
-The sensor has been moved to a new wheel
-The sensor has been adjusted in any way
-The sensor’s parts are 3-5 years old (the rubber grommet lasts as long as tire rubber does)
One KIT per sensor.
Every single replacement part kit includes:
-One valve nut
-One rubber grommet seal
-One TPMS-compatible valve cap (sometimes two)
-Nickel-plated valve core
Some also include the following:
-A metal ring or different beveled washers
I've had mine on for 8 months and no issues with leaks.Replacing the crush washer with every oil change seems like a little overkill to me too. Sigh.
Me, I like factors of safety. Failing to replace the o-ring, retaining nut, valve core (nickel-plated) and a compatible valve cap compromises safety. You are asking for leaks otherwise. Maybe you get lucky with a slow leak.
