You can fit TPMS sensors in standard wheels. As CTuna says, they're $50 each at TireRack.

Some '07 plus '06 and prior use the ABS sensors for the tire pressure function, and while the system needs to be reset when new wheels are placed on them, they don't need sensors in the wheels themselves,so that's a no-cost fix. Some '07 and all later use active sensors that need to be mounted in the wheels, figure $200 for the sensors and another $100 to install/balance.



Edit: Fixed per kMorgan
