How to swap the TPMS from my steelies with hubcaps to the OEM 16' painted pockets?

I swapped mine, it required a very small torx screw. Not too bad.

Well, on the TPMS there is two torx screws, unscrew them and then there will be a bolt holding on the rest of the air valve. Un-do that bolt and transfer it over to the new wheel and reverse process

Do you know if the OEM 16' has "the hole" to screw the TPMS?

The tpms should be a whole valve stem, if the old one is on the 16" oem you should be able to transfer it no problem

I would definitely hold out for the painted wheels. Maybe you'll get lucky and find a "take off" set with TPMS included.

But, if they can be transfered (which they can because ive done it) then why not? Its honestly not hard to transfer them. Two torx is all it takes
