What are you going to do with the steel rims/sensors/tires?
If you break them down, you can take the sensors out & use a band kit in the new tires/rims. The kit cost $50 & others have done that here.
If you keep the steel rims for say winter & add winter tires mounted & aired up, you will not trigger a light unless you get out of signal range. It's pretty far.
In the summer I drive all over the place sometimes 20 miles away, park at a trail head, go for a hike, come back to the truck & still do not have a light. Its been this way for 4 seasons on my 2006.
Others have had same result as me here as well running two sets of tires/one set of sensors.
If you sell the rims/tires/sensors most use the tape method or use other tricks listed on in many of the tacoma forums.
