Default Aftermarket (Cheaper) TPMS?

I did a search but there's a ton of posts about TPMS topics.

I'm getting a new set of wheels & tires, and would like to get new TPMS sensors with them so I can either sell my old tires & wheels or keep them as a winter set.

I've seen other TPMS's, but not sure what works with a 2012 Mustang... so I'm wondering if there's a cheaper but reliable alternative to the OEM Ford TPMS Sensors? The Ford ones seem to be at least $170 for a set.

EDIT: Like these?

NICE! Do they have to be sync'd by a Ford or tire dealer?

Yes and no. Discount tire will do it and it only takes 5 minutes and no appointment. There's also a way to reset them yourself but I'll have to look for that link if you're interested.

**Here's a copy of instructions for you. Not sure if it works since I just had DT do it for me.

Hey guys and girls. I came across a way to train new TPMS sensors. Use this if you're installing winter wheels/tires that have sensors already installed, or even if you are just doing a tire rotation. Not sure if this has been posted before. I tried searching but didn't see it posted anywhere. No need to go and buy the TPMS learning tool.

1) Make sure your tires are inflated to the recommended psi. Mine is 40psi.

2) Turn ignition to the on position. If you have a push button start, push the start button without pressing the brake pedal.

3) Push the hazard light button 6 times. The horn should honk and you should see "Train left front tire" in the LCD display between the tach and speedo.

4) Release air pressure in the front left tire until you hear the horn honk. The LCD display should now read "Train right front tire".

5) Release air pressure in the right front tire until you hear the horn honk.

6) Repeat for the the right rear tire, and then the left rear tire.

7) You should now see "Training Complete" in the LCD display.

8) Fill your tires back up to the recommended pressure.

Enjoy!
