Default TPMS system (sensor questions)

Swapped out my wheels and discovered my car is equipped with TMPS, apparently all new cars are...let the jokes roll in. I really dont give 2 craps about the system right now but eventually the dash light might get annoying. So the question is do I need the factory sensors from each factory wheel before I sell them or can I just get different ones next time I need new tires?
Not really wanting to pay to get 8 tires dismounted and 4 remounted.

Just get 4 new sensors the next time you need tires, and have them programmed.

You may have to give a crap. If your state requires the dash to be clear of any warning lights before you pass a safety inspection, you’ll be in trouble.

FYI, TPMS has been a federal requirement on all new cars/trucks/SUVs since 2008. In our case, there is a physical sensor in each wheel. You can just buy new ones and have them programmed to the car for your new wheels. If you plan on taking them off from your OEM wheels and use them on your new wheels, you can. However, don't be a dick and do have the courtesy to tell the new owner that he/she will need to get new TPMS before the sale take place.
