TPMS rebuild question

I got a set of FJ alloys and was wondering if I can just swap the monitors right over or if I will need to get new seals/o-rings/etc? idk whats involved in them or even if they will fit into the new wheels?

Do you currently have steel wheel or alloys?

a tpms rebuild kit is recommended every time you remove them.

Good then they should swap right over without any mounting angle issues.

you should be fine with using same seal/o-ring. We dont change them often, and Toyota says everytime you dismount a tire that has TPMS you need to drop the sensor down so it doesnt break so the seals are pretty tough. Just have to make sure the rubber seal on the bottom is centered in valve stem hole when it gets tightened down and doesnt get tightened too tight, otherwise you'll have a leak
