If your car has TPMS then yes, you have to install the sensors on your new wheels or your tire pressure light with stay on solid. You will probably have to buy new sensor bands to fit the wheels you have. Hopefully you bought wheels that are compatible with the sensor and band combo that your vehicle is equipped with.

if the rims have sensors in them already you can get them reprogrammed possibly

What year is the vehicle you are putting them on and does it have sensors? If so, you have to swap them over. I don't think 06 came with sensors so you will have to buy 18 inch wheel bands for the sensors and swap them from your old wheels. If you are wondering if you can reuse the OE bands the answer is no, you will never get them on snug enough, I tried. You can buy bands from Napa or any other national part store for around $40 each, stay away from the dealer they charge like $80 each.
