Tire pressure sensors

Hello Guys/Gals,

I recently moved to Montana and we get a great deal of snow. I am wanting to switch my summer wheels (19's) back to my stock wheels(16's) with a little more aggressive tire for winter. I ran into a problem at the tire place (les schwab) saying that the "tire pressure monitoring system" was corroded to the valve stem and couldn't swap the sensors over to my winter wheels.

I went to a second party BMW auto shop and he quoted me $100 each ($400) total for new pressure sensors for my winter wheels.

So I guess I am asking if there is a way around the TSP warning light just for the winter? or am I kind of stuck paying $400 for the sensor & tire stem plus whatever it cost to mount and balance the wheels?

Also is there any cheaper place to buy these sensor other then the dealer?

Thanks for all your help,

Montana Guy
