Buying new wheels, TPMS help

Hi, I am looking at buying a set of 20 inch SS wheels for my LS Camaro. I found some locally and the seller also has a set of new tire pressure monitors. He is charging 50 bucks for the monitors. My question is whether it would be cheaper for me to have my current monitors moved to the new wheels or to buy his monitors and have them installed in the wheels. The new wheels currently have tires installed with regular valve stems. This is my first time purchasing new wheels for a car so any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

If you buy the ones the seller's got , you would have to take the car to the dealer to ,,, pair it to the car
If you use the ones you got , you don't have to , either way you have to dismount the tires to have the TPMS installed on the new wheels and rebalance
Just make sure that you put them back on the same position they where before

Okay, I was afraid of having to have the new ones paired but forgot to mention that in my original post. Thanks for the info!

I would honestly ask around to the tire shop you're getting stuff done how much it's to mount and dismount tires because if you're buying new wheels and tires and buy his tpms you'd just have to dismount once and mount again. If you are going to transfer, you're going to have to dismount and mount both your old setup to get the old tpms and the new setup to put them on

Good point. I'll go ahead of time to my tire shop and see what the price difference will be.
Thanks!
