New wheel and TPMS question

I just purchased a new Toyota Tacoma base model and am considering changing out the ugly OEM wheels (15 X 6). to black wheels. Are the TPMS transferable to the new wheels? I'm a bit of a noob at this. Any suggestions on 15 X 6 black wheels. I like the XD Series Enduro but they only come in 15 X 7. Thanks in advance.

Edit: Just noticed on Tirerack.com that steel wheel TPMS cannot be transferred to alloy wheels.

You can reuse your sensors if you use a strap kit like this:


Talk to the tire shop first and check if the carry it.

Strap is the easiest/cheap/safe way to do it.
Cheapest way, rotate the sensors 180 and they will most likely work with the alloys, BUT, in the future, make sure any tire installer is aware of it or they will break your sensors when they remove your old tires.

On your new truck, I'd go with the strap and standard stems.
My truck is an '08, so the batteries are likely not long for the world. Better option there is to simply buy a new set from Rockauto.

I recommend against the strap and against turning the sensors, because it's too easy to forget to remind the next tire shop that your sensors aren't installed in the original location (using resulting in the sensors being broken when your tire is removed - at no fault of the tire shop).

I just posted some information here:

for someone who asking about going from steel to alloy wheels.
