    2008 Tacoma TRD 4x4 Alloy wheels: (Need to do all wheels including spare as even spare is monitored for 2008, right?)


    Will the following hardware do the job?

    5x Denso 5500103 sensors $32/ea at RockAuto or Amazon (I think they fit ally and steel spare)
    https://www.amazon.com/Denso-550-0103-TPMS-Sensor/dp/B00NQ05U24


    ATEQ TPMS Reset tool $120 at Tirerack
    https://www.tirerack.com/accessories/detail.jsp?ID=2115

    Anyone doing this themselves by only breaking the bead on one side of tire, pressing down on the tire to make room, and changing the device out?

    Some say this isnt that hard to do, but I've never tried - yet.

    When I worked at a tire shop we used to replace them like that all the time. We were using a tire machine though. Watch a couple youtube videos on breaking a tire bead. I've seen it done with a hi-lift jack.

    Are you against disabling the system?

    NO.....thats a simpler option I might take. There are a couple good threads in the forum about doing an electrical defeat.

    But if I sell truck in 5yrs that might be a hickey in the details

    My tire shop charged me $50 to program the sensors, I was having mount & balance done as well. I don't have a Snap on account.
