Couple of aftermarket wheel questions

I'm looking to purchase a new jeep and I am already in trouble. I've started picking out accesories before I have even picked out the jeep. We know we want a wrangler unlimited sport S but we don't like the wheels. We like the rubicon wheels but I figure I would get taken at the dealership if I tried to buy those.
With that in mind I figured 17" black steel wheels would be sufficently durable enough for our intended purposes. I could just take the entire package down to a local tire place and pay to have the rubber swapped out but I have a couple of questions. TPMS; can this just be swapped out from one wheel to another? Steel in a coatal town; is there a rust issue here?

You can just transfer the TPMS sensors from your stock wheels. There is a lot of unpainted metal under your Jeep. If there is a lot of humidity in the air the wheels will be fine unless you scrape them up having fun. If you like the Rubicon wheels just look in the classifieds, there are always take offs for sale by someone.

Buy your Jeep first. Drive it for a while, including off road, then determine how you want to modify it.
