    Default Changing my wheels on my Tundra. Question about the TPMS.

    I just bought a 2010 Tundra. It came with the cheaper steel wheels but I was thinking about swapping those wheels out for a set of alloy wheels that come on a TRD Off Road package. I would prefer to find a set of wheels with the tires (because the tires I have are worn out) already mounted with the TPMS sensors on the wheels. Well I found a set on craigslist and my question is can I just swap out the wheels and the TPMS still work correctly with the sensors from another truck or should I take the sensors that are already on my truck and put them in the new wheels or should I take my truck somewhere to have the new sensors calibrated with my truck? This is my first vehicle with TPMS and I'm just not too sure how this works.

    Your steel wheel sensors will not work with an alloy wheel. There are 2 different sensor types, one for steel and one for alloy. I am pretty sure you can use the ones in the new wheels if you get them programed for your truck.

    Ok thanks. Now I just have to find someone around here that can program the sensors in the new wheels to my truck. Do yall know if this can be done with one of those TPMS code readers or will someone have to break down each one of the new wheels and get the codes that way?

    Some national tire shops do the TPMS updates on the EC for way better than the steelership. Do you have "Discount Tires" in NY state? My local TOYOTA dealer charges a minimum of 1 hr labor to reprogram the TPMS....

    Ok to bring up an old thread. I'm thinking of doing the same as the op but I have the 18" Trd alloys and looking to pick up a set of the bbs 20s. My question is will the tpms I have work on the bbs's? The ones I'm looking at come with some but if I can avoid the cost of programming I will.

    Should work fine. TRD alloys use the 20-degree sensor, which works with aftermarket alloy wheels. It's those darn 40-degree sensors that come with styled-steel wheels that can't be used anywhere else.
