Default TPMS trick - aftermarket wheels

I have a 2010 sebring convertible - I found a great deal on used wheels with new tires for $250 total , but they have standard valve stems . the OEM fake chrome wheels had the stock TPMS sensors - which I removed and saved . I put on new rims and TPMS light came on and registered 4 tires at 0 pressure . I can clear it by pushing reset button on dash . No chimes sound and only yellow tire light stays on dash ( not a big deal ) - I heard of putting sensors inside a PVC tube with a valve stem and pressuring to 32psi - but I also heard sensors have to be moving in circles . If this is true , how would a spare TPMS work . I don't want to try and switch valve stems because they may be reaching end of battery life and they may not even fit on new rims .

Put the tpms sensors in your new wheels, or go buy a set of new sensors from any car parts store. They fit in any kind of rim.

As long as the pressure of your new tires is above the threshold setting the tpms will operate properly
