    Got a 2008 Tacoma a few months ago - LOVE it ... came with the stock steel rims, switched them for the stock 17" rims ... now I find out the TPMS has to be re-calibrated at the dealer for a few $ ... oh boy! Otherwise I love the truck - had a 2.2 Toyota truck extended cab/box for 17 years (since) new before this one with 300,000 KM - first clutch at 250,000 ... that's why I bought this one!

    Welcome to the site. You might want to check your local tire shop for the TMPS. I know most of the ones I have talked to can do the work.

    Thanks - I'll be paying a visit to the shop that switched them for me - good guy - Big O Tire - will ask why they didn't attend to this at the time they installed them. I'll be sure to check back here from time to time - seems like a lot of info on line about something I will be driving a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG time!
