09 Taco TPMS and FJ Cruiser steelies

Hey everyone, I've searched and searched on TPMS sensors, but can't find the answer to this question. I have an 09 Tacoma DC 4x4 with the TRD OR package. I picked up a set of new (take-off) FJ Cruiser steel wheels. I'd like to keep the stock wheels as well and switch back and forth. This leaves me with two questions.

First, I found a set of TPMS sensors from Taco steelies; does anyone know if these will fit the FJ steel wheels properly?

Finally, can the Taco ECU store 9 sensors IDs, or will it have to be reprogrammed each time I swap wheels? If the latter is the case, I guess I'll just forego the TPMS sensors in the Cruiser wheels.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Disregard.

I just spoke with my service department, and they said the truck's ECU could only hold one set of sensors. Every time I were to switch wheels back and forth, I'd have to re-load the codes for the respective set of sensors. I guess one set will remain TPMS-less.

Put your TPMS sensors in the spare tire and run regular valve stems on both sets. You won't know if you have a low tire, but you won't have to look at the warning light.
