Default TPMS new wheels

Just bought a used set of wheels. They have TPMS sensors. What are my options for getting them linked to my car. 2018 wrx. What is the most reasonable path to take?

(As long as they are a compatible set) Go to Discount tire and ask them nicely to sync them to your ECU. Its a 2 minute process and most locations will do it at no charge.

A lot of tire shops can do it. If you work with a local shop a lot, they may do it free, they may charge a little bit.
The shop I work at does general work as well as tires, so we have the reader/programmer.
Yes, it's only a few minutes to do.

You get a TPMS warning light, I don't believe it does anything else.
