Tire and TPMS question

I am getting AEV Pintlers and will likely put new tires on them. Current tires have the TPMS. Do I have to remove from current and use in new set up or can I just have regular valve stems and no TPMS? I don't want to have to mess with the current if possible. Just pull them off and replace with new set up.
Thanks in advance...

If you don't swap the sensors to the Pintlers, you'll have a "ding" at startup and the TPMS light illuminated on your dash.

You can ignore those things and drive away happy, or you can buy a Pro-Cal device to reprogram the system to zero, effectively disabling the system.

Post pics when you get them installed...

Pro-Cal all the way. You will probably need it to adjust the speedo to the new tire size anyways. I just threw new Nittos on Rugged Ridge rims with no TPMS and set the threshold to 0
