I made a response on this very subject in another thread but thought it deserved it's own post for the sake of confirmation and for searching this topic in the future.

I have often heard and stated this very fact myself that the "tire pressure monitoring sensors could not be used with steel wheels" (figured it had to do something with the magnetic field). But I wanted to know why it was. So I did some research and found the following from the very well know http://www.wjjeeps.com/tpms.htm website and its information regarding EVICs.

Supposedly, it CAN be done.

It states the following...
Note that for aftermarket steel wheels the training magnet cannot be used and that a 125kHz transponder is necessary to retrain the EVIC to the sensors. This process can be done by the dealer with a DRB-III tool. The ID's of each sensor must be written down and assigned a location (LF, RF, RR, LR, SP). They are then rewritten to tell the EVIC which position each sensor is in.

when i had the dealership try that on my current steelies they couldn't.
i didn't bother paying them to spend the day trying however a little later, one guy said to try training them first before installing them but to expect the overall system to be a little "flaky".

Your post is worthy of a sticky to save someone some time, money, and aggravation.

Here's something that might work. Train the sensors before mounting them on the wheels. Then be sure to mount them in the wheels in the proper order. Then when you rotate them, just write down a memo to yourself as to which new location corresponds to the original location.

With the DRB III scan tool, you will see all 5 tire pressure sensors and their ID'S. you can change the id's for each one, then train them with your evic. anything can be done. even if your tire pressure sensors do not work, it can still be done
where the light will not go on everytime you start your car. all you have to do, is program the wrong id with the drb, but at that time have the magnet on it while programming the tire pressure sensor and it will keep that pressure memorized.
however, that is if you do not plan on replacing them for the cost, and they will not let u know if u have a flat. just eliminates the light

I'm not authorized to view that link you posted. Can you give me a brief rundown of the info there? I'm looking to run steelies on my M very soon here and want all my ducks in a row.

Jaron, the info there is contained in the Club's Knowledgebase, which is part of the benefits of being a paid Club member.
For $15, you'll have access to that information and TONS of additional information about everything from common mods to common maintenance, including the tire pressure training procedure. Plus you'll help support this thing of ours.
