I have a 2017 Sportage 1.7CRDI. I fitted aftermarket wheels

Hello,I have a 2017 Sportage 1.7CRDI. I fitted aftermarket wheels yesterday as I need winter tyres for work and intend on keeping the car so splashed out a lot of money. TPMS system warning light on, have been to a dealer and had the explanation as to why this has happened.1. I have been looking at OEM sensors for the wheels as they are cheaper but I am wondering if the system will recognize them?2. there is also now an buzzer going off when I brake or indicate that started just after the wheels were changed. I am thinking that this is from the Kia fitted towbar but cant get why it has just happened now? Would it have moved something when i jacked up the car?
