Transferring TPMS sensors are kind of a pain. You need to marry them up with specific valve stems, and then have them reprogrammed. I see you are in PA like me and for the 2-4 months we actually have winter conditions I would just deal with the light being on and save yourself some cash and headache.

Also the newer WRX/STi are only capable of learning 1 set of 4 TPMS sensors so every time you switch wheels you will either need to buy the tool or have a shop reset them for you.

the TPMS valves and sensors work fine on our steel wheels .. .if you order a new set of sensors with a wheel and tire package you will need to visit a Subi dealer to intialize them though.
