Default OEM Alloys on a stock Steelie PT w/ TPMS

Parents have an 09 PT Cruiser - base model with the stock 15 steel wheels.

I have a set of OEM 16 7-spoke wheels from an 05ish PT Cruiser that they would like to install with their next tire replacement.

What do we need to know about the TPMS system as far as the sensors are concerned? Can the original sensors be swapped over out of the steel wheels, or will we need new ones?

If new sensors are required, any recommendations on places to purchase, and/or a required method/process to configure the system to read the new sensors?

Any advice appreciated. Thanks!

I'm not totally sure about Gen-2 PT's;But,since the TPMS on Gen-2 PTs is monitored by the ECU/PCM which utilizes the Can-Bus system The ECU/PCM 'may' need to be 'flashed' or re-calibrated....Someone who is more familiar whit the Gen-2's may chime in soon.......Best case scenario,everything works fine.....Worst case scenario I can picture;Your TPMS light will come on,and stay on.

The sensors will work just fine. I have a 2009 that had the stock 15" steel wheels and I found a set of 16" chrome stock wheels off of Craigslist. I bought new tires and had it all switched out at the same time.

The tire shop rebuilt the sensors and installed them in the chrome rims. Cost $7.50 per sensor for the rebuild. The Chrysler setup is self learning so after you get it back the tire warning light may be on. Drive for a few miles and it should go off.
