Thanks NickCornell. So it's no big deal? I am an amateur when it comes to any car technical stuff!

I wouldn't even bother with buying 17" snow tires.. I'm going with a 205/60/R16 for my winters, from a 235/40/R18. Talk about wasting money on sensors when you're going to be wasting it on tires aswell.

I'm not 100% but I'm pretty sure it's not a big deal if you don't mind the notification.

Ohhh, you are on to something. Will those fit perfectly? The OEM tire size for 16" rims is 215/55R16.

I'm just going to buy a set of inexpensive 15" alloys from TireRack and mount the Blizzaks from the old Mazda on 'em without the TPMS sensors. I could care less about the "notification" at startup.

Keep your hard earned money and buy another upgrade. I changed my wheels and I have no sensors on them now, yes the light is always on but is it worth 170+tax to turn a light off? I don't think so

There's a website you can go to to check tire size changes with different size rims to tires and such. I forget what it is though. It's damn close for the 205/60/r16. I've always run 60s in the winter with my mk1 face lift. Slightly thinner tire never hurts for the winter.
