Hi people. New to the forum. Just bought some new wheels for my Levorg. For the members out there that have also replaced wheels - what did you do with regards fo the TPMS valves? I was thinking just to swap them onto the new wheels. Is this a possibility?

you can indeed most definitely move the tpms valves from factory to aftermarket wheels. unless those new wheels don't fit any kind of tpms, you should be able to fit the subaru ones onto the new wheels.

alternatively, aftermarket clonable tpms sensors are also a thing - just get them programmed to mimic a subaru factory tpms valve and you're good to go. It's more expensive than moving tpms valves around, but cheaper than purchasing new EOM ones.

When I changed my wheels I just swapped the TPMS to the new ones. No problem at all.

Do they read on the factory stereo? I don't think we get them in Australia? Maybe an optional extra?
They have a warning light. It's been a legal requirement in Europe to have TPMS since 2012.
