Default Tactrix Openport and TPMS

I've recently purchased a 2017 WRX and am now getting a second set of tires and wheels for the winter. I'm anticipating the TPMS error that will be thrown when the new wheels are put on the car.

I've researched the solutions that many others have found, either by purchasing sensors that can be cloned, or using the ATEQ Quickset tool to re-program the car. I understand how that works. However, I already own a Tactrix cable, which I've used on my 2006 STI, but I couldn't find any threads where the Tactrix was used to change the sensor IDs. I'm not interested in disabling the TPMS light using Tactrix, just reading/updating the values for the new wheels.

I've seen that the Cobb AP can handle TPMS learning and it seems like a natural step for Tactrix, and I'd rather save myself some money before I buy another device when I already own one that might work.

This would be nice. I was planning to buy a device, but then I learned that Discount Tire in my area reflashes TPMS for free. Is that an option in your area?

That's only the Nissan GT-R AccessPort.

The Tactrix cable may be able to get you access to the TPMS system; here's something called ETACS decoder. I have no idea if it's Subaru-compatible...
