Yes, you will just constantly have a little orange warning light and a notification in startup to service tire pressure monitoring system.

^^ He can fix it by doing the black electrical tape gauge mod. That gets old really fast though and the orange light is almost better.

The sensors can be swapped, there is nothing special about the wheels.

The black tape mod is covering the dummy light with black electrical tape so you don't see it anymore. Poor man's fix. No easy way to turn the light off unfortunately.
