    I'm going to take a FJ cruiser rim into a shop and see if the stock sensors from my steelies will fit into it. Should I go to the dealership or Discount Tire? Not sure who would have the most experience here, most of the dealerships I have spoken to about these sensors are pretty clueless.:eek:

    I would try a wheel shop look for one that mainly does aftermarket wheels they should know something about it kinda surprised that the dealer has no clue about it

    had the dealer try the steel pressure sensor on the FJ rim, it was a no-go so I'm back to looking for TRD alloys or pressure sensors that will fit the FJ
