    Well I pulled of a purchase of the Team Trails black alloys, but I have the steel tacoma wheels and sensors. I know they wont fit properly due to angle, but was wondering if it was possible to mount 180 degrees without cracking stem when cranked down? I know some people have done this with aftermarket alloys and I have seen those threads, but I have not heard of people experiences going from toyota steel to toyota alloy. Also, do tire shops have issues with using tire bands?

    If my truck was older and the sensor batteries were old I would stop cheaping out and just buy the 20 degree sensors. Being a 2010 they have a while to go. If I break them off someday with flat I'll just get the proper ones. Thoughts on 180 fitment and bands for these?

    The shop you bring them to will try to mount them 180. If they don't work out, have them mount them with TPMS straps. That's what I have and have had no issues after 30,000 miles.

    Sounds good. I guess I was thinking that shops don't carry the straps but it seems as more cars have them they start to use aftermarket solutions.

    Go to Discount Tire they are the ones that installed the straps for me. They had them in stock, said they do it all the time.
