Is this what the TPMS looks like on the 16" Offroad wheels?

    Hey all, just looking for a little help. Did a search and found different sensors were used from the 16" Toyota wheels to the 17".

    I picked up a set of 16" TRD Offroad wheels/tires and I'm just wondering if they have TPMS sensors.

    Can anyone tell me if this is what they look like?

    Reason I ask is because my tires are shot on my 17" TRD Sport wheels. Picked up a set of the 16" TRD Offroad wheels with a lot of tire life left for a great deal.
    I would like to keep the TPMS function with the Offroad wheels so my options are to remove them from the Sports and have them installed on the Offroads. Talking with the Discount tire folks it comes out to $140+ to dismount/discard the Sports' tires, dismount the Offroad's, install the sensors, mount the Offroad tires back on and call it a day. Or...he said if the Offroad's already have TPMS then reprogramming is free.
    Hence my need to identify if this set of Offroad's have TPMS in them.

    Whew...thanks for any and all help I can get. Excuse my long explanation. Have a good one all!:D

    Nope, that looks like a standard valve stem.

    The TPMS is a solid metal "stem", at least thats what they look like on my 10' OR.

    Hard to say. Stock TPMS has a solid metal stem. Aftermarket sensors can have a rubber stem.

    I don't think there's a sensor in that wheel, not an OEM sensor anyway.

    I had my sensors swapped to my new wheels and valve stems put on the old wheels. The original Off Road has silver stems that are part of the sensor. The replacement stems they put back on were black like your picture. I assume that is what the previous owner of the rims did... so no sensors in those wheels.
