Switching our TPMS

I'm putting on a new set of wheels and need to have my TPMS switched from the old to new set and then have the new set balanced and mounted.

Does anyone have suggestions on how/where to get that done? I'm assuming just going to Firestone, but wanted to check with the forum first.

I'll update this in the event it pops up in somes search in the future. I've received quotes from $90 to $350 to simply switch TPMS from one set of wheels to the next. So, if you're ever in the same boat as me, make sure to call around before you commit to some place.

Yes...since you've got a JK you should spend $100 on a used AEV ProCal module so you can turn the TPMS light off. Then you'll never have to worry about it again.

I ended up getting 5 TPMS moved, 5 new wheels balanced and mounted, and 4 worn tires disposed of for $98 at Firestone Complete Auto Care. As an FYI for those in Houston, I got a quote from 4WheelParts for the same work, less the tire disposal, for $338. I have no idea why their quote was so high, but it's turned me off from using/recommending them for anything in the future.
