Here is the short procedure[screwy] to get the tire pressure sensors on the new rims to work,

If your vehicle has push-button ignition
1.) Make sure all tires are inflated to the vehicle’s recommended inflation pressures (found in the owner’s manual on the door placard).
2.) Make sure the ignition button is OFF then press and release the brake pedal.
3.) Hold the ignition button down for 2 seconds, release it, and then tap the button once. The vehicle should be OFF. Hold the ignition button down for another two seconds, release it, and then tap the button once.
4.) Hold the ignition button down for two seconds again. The vehicle should be in RUN mode, engine off.
5.) Press and release the brake pedal.
6.) Tap the ignition button once so the vehicle is OFF.
7.) Hold the ignition button down for 2 seconds, release it, and then tap the button once. The vehicle should be OFF. Hold the ignition button down for another two seconds, release it, and then tap the button once.
8.) Hold the ignition button down for two seconds again. The vehicle should be in RUN mode, engine off.
9.) The horn should sound letting you know the vehicle has entered into TPMS relearn mode.
10.) Place the top of the TPMS triggering tool against the sidewall of the driver’s side front tire in the location of the valve stem.
11a.) If using a VT10, hold down the left button of the VT10 triggering tool for 10-15 seconds. The vehicle’s horn will sound letting you know the sensor has been learned.
11b.) If using a VT15, press the left button, wait until the horn sounds, then press the right button to turn the tool off.
11c.) If using a FORDTRIGGER, press the center button. The vehicle’s horn will sound letting you know the sensor has been learned.
12.) Once the horn sounds, move on to the passenger side front tire and repeat the process. Each tire should only take 30 seconds or less.
13.) After the passenger side front tire has been learned, continue on to the passenger side rear tire and finishing with the driver’s side rear tire.
14.) You may now turn the ignition to OFF. If the horn does not sound, the sensors were learned successfully. If the horn sounds twice, then the process must be repeated because there was a malfunction.
Each tire has its own pressure sensor. If the air pressure of a tire becomes severely low, the sensor in that tire immediately sends a signal that causes the tire pressure indicator in the instrument panel to come on.
If there is a problem with the TPMS, the tire pressure indicator icon will flash and then stay lit in the instrument cluster. If this happens, the system is off and is not monitoring the tire pressures.
Contact The Tire Rack if you purchased the currently installed sensors from us and this warning appears.

I must have looked like an idiot in the driveway running around my car. It took four times to get it to work.

Let it snow!!!!!!!!!!!!!! [clap]
