    Will these work with Toyota tpms sensors? Meaning if you bought the wheels, then bought Toyota tpms sensors, you could install the sensors on the wheels and have them programmed to the ecu just as you do when swapping to different Toyota wheels?

    Just curious, i'm too broke for wheels that beautiful

    Thank you for your input! I always love seeing your truck! :D:D:D

    Cool! Sounds good! :)

    Yes, the Konig Countersteer Offroad wheels are 100% compatible with 20 degree angled Toyota TPMS sensors. The 20 degree sensors are the sensors that come in aluminum alloy Toyota wheels (steel Toyota wheels use a 40 degree angled sensor, which isn't compatible with alloy wheels).

    If your truck came with alloy wheels and TPMS sensors you can just transfer your sensors right into the Konig Countersteer Offroad wheels.

    If your truck came with steel wheels you can order Toyota 20 degree TPMS sensors, and just as you said, install them into the Konig Countersteer Offroads and then have the ECU programmed to recognize. Alternately, you can also order aftermarket programmable sensors and have the shop program those to mimic your original sensors.

    For those local to Southern California - I do have a TPMS programmer and I offer the service for a nominal charge to anyone buying my wheels that needs sensors or an ECU programmed. :)

    Looks awesome man! What lift and tire size are you running? I just picked up a '12 TRD Sport and am learning about lifts and tire size.

    I have my 40 degree sensors installed in my countersteers with no problems. The guy at discount tire said he just had to be a little bit careful.

    Thank you for posting your photo to help out FSUtaco.

    I believe the 40 degree sensor from the steel wheel can be installed into an alloy wheel if it's turned around backwards. There are also special cradles and bands that can be used to mount them to the barrel.

    We like to switch out the sensors for 20 degree sensors from alloys or for EZ Sensors from Schraeder just to be safe. My fear would be that an unsuspecting tire shop might break the sensor if you install a steel wheel sensor in a non-factory position in an alloy wheel. However, as long as you let any future tire shop know then it should be any issue.

    I do receive PMs and phone calls quite often asking about TPMS compatibility. Here's another friendly reminder to everyone:

    The Konig Countersteer Offroad wheels and all of the other wheels that I am currently selling are 100% directly plug and play compatible with all TPMS sensors from all manufacturers, including Toyota alloy wheel sensors, with the only know exception of Toyota steel wheel 40 degree sensors.

    TPMS sensors from Toyota steel wheels will require modification (or recommended replacement) to work with any alloy wheels (even including other Toyota wheels which are alloys). This means that you can't directly take your TPMS sensors from your factory Toyota steel wheels and bolt them into a factory Toyota alloy wheel either, even though both wheels are factory Toyota wheels.


    :) :) :)

    For some reason we don't have a whole lot of photos of bronze on red Tacomas. I think that red Tacomas are fairly rare, because we have very few photos in general of our wheels on red trucks.

    Here are a couple photos of the now-discontinued 5-lug Countersteers on a red 2nd Gen Tacoma, but the overall design is the very similar to the still-in-production 6-lug Countersteer Offroads:

    (color shown is anodized bronze):

    Here is the FN Wheels Five Star in matte bronze (very similar to the matte bronze that is available for the Countersteer Offroad) on a red Tacoma:

    I hope these photos help illustrate the color combination.
