Tire pressure monitoring system fault

I just bought a 2009 G8 base model, one-owner, with 121,000 miles. The car has aftermarket wheels which seem to not have tire pressure sensors installed. I'll know more on Friday when my tire shop reopens. In any case if they are installed and are the original equipment moved over to these wheels, then I might need a new set of 4 anyway due to age/battery life. Oh, and the TPMS fault is showing on the dash in addition to the yellow |!| low tire symbol.

Is there anything special about the tire pressure sensors? Will any replacement sensors work? My tire guy said they cost $90 but I see them online for $30 to $50. Is he just estimating high?
