    After buying my left over 2016 Prius 4 in November, I bought a set of American Racing wheel at Tire Rack in December and decided I would leave the stock wheels on it until spring. Now comes the part with dealing g with TPMS. I decided I would buy TPMS sensors that were programmable and install them in my new wheels.
    I found a company by the name of Autel that makes a programmable sensor and a tool that will not only program them but can read the codes from the car so I can program my new sensors.
    My sensors aren't here yet but I did use the new tool to copy the numbers from the TPMS sensors on the car.
    This video shows what I am doing.

    Did you consider transferring existing sensors over to the new wheels? Or you want to preserve them?

    Is this for a Gen 4 or Prius Prime? It is in the Prime forum.

    No, I will have two sets of wheels and tires with matching codes . I will just switch them and shouldn't have to do anything else, a one time shot I hope.

    I didn't know I was in the Prime Forum but doesn't the Prime use the same TPMS sensors and wheels?
    I'll try not to let it happen again.

    Yeah I think it's all the same.

    My Autel Mx TPMS sensors came today and I followed the video and have successfully cloned all four new sensors to the ID of the ones on the car. It will be a while before I buy my new tires for my new rims. When spring fever hits me that will be the motivation and coming up with over $400 bucks also. lol

    I am impressed by the way Autel's Maxi Pad and sensors worked. No buggy software.
