I have my eyes on a new set of wheels, but am curious about how the tire pressure sensor will react. Can i keep the sensors? what did you guys do?

You just have to make sure they'll fit. If you're keeping the old wheels as backups, buy a new sensor and test fit it in any wheels you're considering. They will fit in a lot of wheels.

If you're selling the old wheels, buy new sensors and leave the old ones in there. Or give the buyer the choice. Because as soon as you take them out, the wheels will have to be rebalanced. Most people would be happy to pay extra for the sensors to be left in, so they don't have to cough up money to rebalance and buy sensors if they need them.

I've seen them going for around $30 US each. You buy them from a dealer.

The stem is part of the antenna, but if it won't fit, you can modify it so you don't have to use the stem. It would require an alternate means of attaching it to the rim, and the antenna connection still has to be made.

Sigh... I've posted a picture a few times already. Where is it... Oh yeah, there... The module can move a bit off the valve stem, so there's flexibility in fit, to a certain degree.
