new rims toms help!

currently running 33x12.5s on my stock 17" wheels
want to install my cragar soft 8 17x9 wheels

What do i need to know about my tpms/valve stem?

i went to a local flat fixed type of shop, and was told i need to purchase new tpms in order to put the new wheels on.. this + the attitude of the gentlemen didnt make me too confident in his advice. so i left, and im here to research.

I should be able to use the same tpms & stem on my new wheels correct? if not what do i need to purchase? also any ideas on cost?
to swap the rims it was $20 each which sounded good to me. but the tpms were $30 each which did not sound to good...
thank you guys!!! and im sorry if the info is already in the threads im kind of strapped for time being that my rims are in my car & parked in the street LOL

He was full -o- shit. They can swap your existing TPMS onto the new wheels if they aren't total fucking morons. Upselling is the name of the game. Try a different shop.

Let me add, the stem is all you need on 2011+ models. 2007-2010 have a metal stem that can be rebuilt. Either way a decent shop would have either type in stock.

Five of these and a shop that aren't a bunch of douchebags and you're set.

Buy this and you can install them yourself in a few minutes with some dish soap.

You're welcome. Hate seeing people get hoodwinked by fast talking sales monkeys...

We just swap them over and rebuild the stem. No need to pay 70+$ for new ones unless you wanted to have to sets. It's very easy to do.
