Reusing OEM TPMS on custom wheels?

I'm kind of new to fitting custom wheels to a car with TPMS units. I picked up a set of wheels for my X5M and realized I'll be needing TPMS with the new wheels (or otherwise pull the fuse/code out the light). Since I'm planning on keeping my OEM wheels should I ever sell the car, I was wondering if i can just pull the ones from them and reuse them on the new wheels.

Sorry for a noobish question, but any help is much appreciated!

Thanks!

Kris

Yes you can, just buy a 'TPMS rebuild kit' to use new seals... not mandatory, but for a piece of mind.

Thanks! Any suggestions on where to buy that? I'll google it, but just in case.
