question about TPMS fitment and tyres

Hello guys!
i am planning to ditch the RFTs and change my wheels.

My questions are;
How do i transfer the TPMS into my new wheels?
also what are some good tyres? i know everyones been talking about PSS. But i don't plan to spend that much on tyres, and my threads run out pretty quickly.

Please help if you can

Cheers!:

For your first question:

For your 2nd question, as you mentioned, PSS is the favorite right now. But the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 is also very good, for a bit less money. See test results here:

Good response/advice from Morfinx. Your profile doesn't state what BMW model you drive or the model year; assuming Z4. Be aware that BMW changed the TPMS sensors in the wheels and the corresponding sensors inside the e89 Z4 after 9/2010. My 2011 is a 3/2010 build date that wasn't compatible with a set of wheels/tires I bought off a 2011 iS built after the config change.
The Burger Motor Sport JB4 tuner can turn on/off your TPMS alert using commands from the steering wheel or Macht Schnell makes a box to nullify the TPMS system if you choose a by-pass option. These options are intended to accomodate the track day tire changes from street tires to race tires, ie off road application only.
