The sensor for the tire pressure monitor is actually in the wheels. I'm pretty sure the only way to make the light go away is to transfer the sensors from your stock wheels to your new ones, or buy a set for the new wheels.
For me, I just put a piece of black tape over the light so that I can't see it..

Electrical tape does wonders.

My 87 Dodge Shadow had a shift light indicator arrow that would come on at 2000 rpms and 3000 rpms. Needless to say, I taped over that light very quickly. I HATE dummy lights.
