Reuse TPMS from current tires?

Hi All,

Question, can I use my current TPMS and just put them on my winter wheels? My understanding is that they TPMS are in the valve caps and I just unscrew and put them on the winter wheels?
These are new to me used to have an E39 and no sensors.

Any adivce would be nice!

Not sure mate, thinking the valves are non-transferable unless an adapter is installed on other sets... Just change the tyres on the existing rims to continue using the TPMS (I think) !

Heads-up... If you experience heavy snow then you might want to lose some air from the tyres for more traction, this will trigger the tyre pressure module so I wouldn't bother messing around TBH.

Eso es todo!
