Default tire pressure monitoring system?

I ordered a GT on Monday night and have a replacement set of rims in mind once the car arrives. Because its a 5 speed, I've been told it could be awhile. Can anyone tell me if the 2007 has a tire pressure monitoring system or something to that effect, and am I limited in which rims I can install on the car? If there is a system, can I override it? Thanks for any assistance.

I believe you can swap it to the other wheels. The dealer can sell you straps for the sensors that go on the inside of the wheel.

Look in your owners manual!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it has a picture of it. You can't overide it. Ford P/N for new strap kit 6F2A-1A193 A thru M they have kits for 14" thru 24" rims. The system is Federal mandated for 2007 and beyond all makes.

You can't override the system. I looked and asked about it. My car had 20" rims on it before I even purchased it (the dealer had them installed) and they didn't do anything to make the TPMS system work. But I know there are straps and sensors out there. You should be able to use the sensors from the stock wheels and buy a different size strap. I don't know where the best place to get them is, but I know www.tirerack.com has them, although they look pricey on there. Your best bet would be to go under the tire section in here, there are a lot of questions on there. Colin from the above website has a wealth of information too, and he won't sit there and try to sell you their parts. Oooorrrrr, you can just suck it up like I am and hit the "reset" button every time you start the car to clear the TPMS malfunction warning.
