If you are buying a set of 5 tires/wheels, you might be able to get the tire shop to move the TPMSs to the new set for free. 5 new tires/wheels aren't cheap and the tire shop may do it to get your business.
It worked for me. I bought 5 new 35x12.5R17 BFG KM2 tires and wheels from Discount Tire. They moved my TPMSs from the stock wheels to the new ones and remounted the stock tires back on the stock wheels after the TPMSs were removed.
