New Wheels.... Tire Pressure Sensors?

If you change wheels, can the OEM tire pressure sensors be moved to the new wheels?

From Tirerack.com...
Can I reuse my Original Equipment (O.E.) TPMS sensors instead of buying new sensors when I purchase new wheels?
A vehicle’s O.E. sensors can be reused with new wheels. A qualified installer will need to remove the sensors from the previous wheels and install them on the new.
The following parts will need to be replaced by your installer when reusing O.E. sensors:
Rubber grommet seal
Aluminum valve nut
Aluminum or plastic TPMS-compatible valve cap with an internal O-ring seal
Nickel-plated valve core
Various valve washers or rings where required depending on the application.

I do not have these in my wheels so I do not have any direct experience, but I hope this helps.

Thanks. I remember having to replace one of the sensors on my 2007 GT and it cost $130. Adding $520 to the cost of 4 American Torque Thrust wheels starts to make it more prohibitive.

It depends on the type of sensor you have. If you have a band type then I'm not 100% sure sure they can be transferred. But if it's the valve stem type then they can easily be transferred

I just bought 4 oem sensors from eBay for $60. I've had them over a year with no issues.

I have a 07 gt with the band type and all I done was buy new bands and swap sensors over.

Where did you get the replacement bands? are they available at the local auto parts store?
