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.
No, you can go 3rd party. I got a set from Tire Rack when I was buying my winters about a year ago. They do have to be programmed to the system which the dealership can do easily or you can buy the little tool and do it yourself if plan on swapping them back and forth your self (forgot how much the thing costs).
.'s a lockpick. It might come in handy if you, the master of unlocking, take it with you.
