New wheels from steel + hubs to alloy!

Hey guys, FINALLY got my TPMS sensors in the mail and got my TRD rims put on today. So excited!

Went from 245/65/16 to 265/70/17 absolutely no problems or rubbing and I get to keep my flaps!

The two close ups are my old ones againts the new ones. They uploaded funny so you might have to tilt your head.

Next up I think is shocks (bilsteins and AAL).

Wow. Huge Improvement. Looks really good.

Did you end up getting take off or new TRD Wheels and did you order Toyota TPMS?

I'm looking at going this route as well - good choice!

I got the wheels used from an 08 TRD off ebay and I ordered dorman 974-003 sensors. Saved a good ~800 dollars in doing so. DE Toyota over here charged 150 a sensor I think and I got all 4 of them for 127.

Lol it was a pretty nice steal, but I was still poor as hell afterwards even though I saved a lot of cash.

Been driving these for 3 weeks now? No problems except the sensor light went on today and it turns out it was my spare (old tires) sensor that apparently died.
