Default New rims and tires TPMS!

I want to get new rims and tires. Is there anyway I can turn of the TPMS so I don't have to put them on when I get new rims and tires.

You can get a piece of PVC pipe. place all sensors in it. Then seal the ends up. On one end put a air valve. Fill it with air and place under seat. It will trick the system.

on alot of new sensors this wont work, the wheel spinning is what activates the sensor other then that itll be in like a kind of sleep mode

The sensor doesn't send out the signal until centrifcal (spelling) force is detected. I think the only way to get rid of the light is to remove the bulb (thats if the dash panel cluster isn't a l.e.d. board) or put a piece of electrical tape on the back of the gages. Researching it now.....

The system resets itself. Or atleast for my truck it does. I want the system gone because I have 3 different sets of rims/tires for my truck and the idiot light is driving me nuts! It's a normal practice of mine to check all the tire presures and clean out the truck every time I fill up at the gas station. Besides an idiot light cannot fix stupidity.
