Swapping TMS when going from OEM RF tires to non OEM standard tires

I plan to get new non RF tires from an independent dealer. Are the TPMS units a simple swap, or does it require some kind of dealer updates in order for these to work?

IIRC they are attached to the rim and not the tire. Regardless I had no issues with Costco doing my tire replacement.

Just be prepared for pushback if you haven't add an airpump + bottle of goo before hand or a real spare.

Costco started to refuse to swap my RF's for non-RF's until I pointed out I already had a spare in the trunk.
