Buying New Tires and Wheels

Can anyone tell me about stock JK tires. I plan to purchse Nitto 35 12.5 x 18 tires with new wheels this week. but a little confused about the tire pressure monitors in my tires. is this something I need to purchase with the new tires, or is it a seperate item that is part of the jeep? I have a 2012 Sahara Unlimited.
Plan to do the lift in a month or so. (figured I will purchase tires and wheels that can not fit on jeep. Forced to lift it.) My wife does not understand this....but it makes since to me. any help would be great.

Thanks Sean

You can have the tire shop remove the TPMS from your OEM tires and put them on your new wheels for a nominal charge. The TPMS sensors cost over $200 for all 5.

Thanks, good luck on the surgery. I thought I needed that done a few years back. Got 3 cortazone shots and made it a lot better. still not 100% but working thru it.

Or you can purchase a Procal for $150 and set the TPMS threshold to 0 and don't worry about moving the sensors over or getting new ones.

Better yet, if you're a I-bought-em-I-wanna-use-em kind of guy, set the sensors for, say, 20 PSI. When they crap out on you later, you can always set em for zero and wash your hands of em.
