ChalupaJones As long as they're the correct frequency for your car they should just pair right up. I put oem wheels on my car, oem sensors from the new set and everything. Put em on, took it for a drive, light came on for a little bit, light went off, no issues.

Of course that only works if the sensors have been powered up and confirmed to have been working before. Not sure about swapping to new sensors that haven't been turned on before, but I think they might not just wake up on their own.

You don't have to reprogram activated sensors, as the car will just pick them up again, but new ones are possibly shipped in the de-energized state and won't know to wake up without being triggered possibly.

Ben Franklin They look good in the trunk, but are going to look way better on the car than in it. I'm getting the tires Wednesday.

From what I've read on here I'm assuming there will be no issues with tire rub. I'll report back on that later.

I have new TPMSs for the wheels. My question is, what needs to be done to make these talk to my car? Don't tell me I have to go to Ford. I was thinking of going to my friend body shop. I imagine those guys have to put new wheels on cars a lot.

Overall it took me about 9 hours and 4 cans, with 5 total coats. I cut cardboard inserts and used painters tape to stop over spray on the inside of the rim(this didn't turn out perfect, but still looks decent), and tape and plastic on the tire for the same purpose. Despite a mishap with a defunct can, it went pretty smooth. Next up will be tint, or installing my already existing stereo.

You should peel the dip off where the ford logo is (center cap) it'll peel off no problem, if you're worried...
