I'll try to summarize what I know so far.
The only way to disable the light is to either:
A) clip the factory wiring so the light will not come on (search the Tundra forum at tundrasolutions.com for more info)
B) put your old sensors in a pressurized air-tight container such as a PVC pipe or wheelbarrow tire and keep it in the truck
C) buy the sensors for the alloy/aluminum wheels and see if they fit the rims you want to buy.
D) put a piece of black tape over the dashboard light
I was able to get 4 of the alloy sensors from my B-I-L Toyota mechanic for $25 each, usually they are over $100 each. From what I've found so far, any sensor from a Toyota alloy rim will fit another Toyota alloy rim (FJ, TRD, etc). However, the steel sensors will only fit the steel wheels.
The steel sensors are at a 40 degree angle and will not allow the valve stem to properly seat in the alloy rims. The alloy sensors are 20 degrees and should be able to swap between any other Toyota alloy rims. In certain cases the steel sensors will fit in other aftermarket rims, but you'll have to do a fit test to know for sure.
Hope that sums it up. I've been dealing with the issue for the past two weeks because I want to put FJ rims on my 07 Taco which came with the steel rims. I finally had to pony up and just buy the alloy sensors to make it all work properly. I'm 99% certain the alloy sensors will fit the FJ rims, but I won't know 100% until I get the sensors and test fit them into the FJ rims.
