    Got some cheap 1st gen rims wondering if there is a tpms sensor that fits the older rims, ordered some tires from costco and they were unable to put my old tpms sensors on the 1st gen rims, anyone know if there is a way to get tpms sensors that will fit older rims.

    Costco is willing to work with me if I can find something that willl work

    I want to put a/t's on 1 st gen rims and leave stock dunlaps on steel wheels for the summer.

    nice, I bought a set of 1st gen Tundra Steel rims for my 2nd gen Tacoma (16" round holes), but I also picked up 4-TPMS sensors from here made for steel wheels, if they don't fit then I'll strap...

    Question: what's the opinion on strapping all 4 to the spare (5th in the rim anyway)? Or do they have to be rotating ?
