    I assume you mean 265/70/17. There's no such thing as a 270/65/17 tires.

    For the tpms, the shop may be able to flip them 180 degrees. If not, they can use TPMS straps.

    Yes, have them do that by flipping them, or using the TPMS straps, as I noted above.

    The steel wheel sensors have a different seat angle than the alloys, so they are not a "direct" swap.


    I have had the tpms straps now for 25K miles with no issues.
