Default Aftermarket Alloys

Hi All
This has probably been asked before but I'm considering changing standard alloys on my GT-line for a set of aftermarket ones which I already have, what I want to know is will it be better trying to swap tyre pressure sensors or just get them programmed out and if so is it Peugeot who can only reprogram so sensors aren't detected as I'm concerned that if I do try swapping them over that knowing my luck one will stop working
Cheers Guys in advance

Are you sure that your car has TPMS valves fitted? Our 308 - lower spec than yours - has a passive system which relies on measuring any difference in wheel speed due to low pressure.

You can tell if you have this system if you have a button on the Driving Assistance screen (trip mileage, mpg, etc) inviting you to reset the tyre pressure monitoring after checking the tyre pressures.

Hi Paul R and thanks for your reply, it has the tyre pressure reset button on the assistance screen so I just assumed it had the valves fitted as I didn't realise it just measured the wheel speed, if this is the case will I be ok to put my aftermarket wheels on ?
And again thanks for your reply

Can I ask, what will you be doing with your GT alloys?

Are you replacing the wheels because you don't like the look of them? If so, are you doing a size for size replacement? And do the wheels have the same offset? In fact, what were they bought for?

The 308 doesn't have active TPMS and so doesn't have sensors in the wheels. The TPMS is a passive system that measures the wheel speed to monitor changes that may indicate a puncture.

I'm replacing the alloys but only as a temporary measure as who ever had the car previous to me didn't really take care of the alloys hence a few kerb and scuff marks, so I want to take off, clean them up and then get them powder coated a different colour, I just didn't want to be faffing around having to swap everything for the sake of a few weeks and the alloys that I'm fitting where bought for my megane coupe I used to have, they are same size and same offset so would be like for like, just different design as I'll only probably have to change the spigot for the centre hub for them to fit
