Hey, quick question for you guys.

I know I'm bumping the thread, but I need to learn a few more things regarding the TPMS.
I intend on running separate rims/tires for winter. By doing so, I need 4 new TPMS units.

Can these units be purchased from a 3rd party retailer (eBay, auto parts store, etc.), or must I go to the stealership? Can I purchase them at the same time I buy my winter tires with steelies from a tire shop?

From what I understand, the TPMSs have to be programmed to the vehicle, and I'm not certain whom, other than the stealership, is able to do so.

Thanks for the help.
