    Alright guys, here's the deal. I've got a 2012 dclb sr5 with the steel wheels. I've recently found a nice set of sport 17inch rims. I've done a fair amount of searching but I can't find the answers to these questions. Any help would be awesome!

    1. First off, will they fit?

    2. Tpms sensors? If they come with the wheels can I just throw the wheels on then they'll be fine? Do they have to be programmed?

    3.if they don't come with them, can I just switch the tpms's from my old steel wheels to the new alloys, or will I have to purchase new ones?

    4. The wheels are basically brand new, so I should be able to throw them right on, they shouldn't need to be balanced or anything, right?

    5. Anybody done a swap like this? Any pics?

    Thanks guys

    Poweraid TB spacer, a bunch a cool stickers, a bada ass MetalMiller Tx Longhorns grill emblem painted Hemi Orange, JBA 2035s headers and dey are perty, Diff breather mod, Red LED interior lights, Fancy head unit that plays ipod n movies, Also DIY install factory stuff like, factory cruise control, factory intermittent wipers, OME nitro struts with 886x springs and toy tec top plate, LR UCA's for better alignmnet and dey beefier too, Old Man Emu Dakar leaf springs in da rear with the gear, U bolt flipper, 5 factory 16" steels wit Pep Boys special Dakota Definity MT's in 285/75/16, some bad ass weather tech floor liners so I don't muck up my interior, an ATO shackle flipper for mo travel in da rear wit the gear, also super shiny Fox 2.0 shocks back there too, all sorts of steal armor for bouncing off of the rocks like demello sliders, AP front skid, trans skid, n transfer skid, demello gas tank skid, and a tough as nails ARB bumper with warn 8k winch, I'm sure there's more but it's alre

    1. They will fit, I did the same thing.

    2.New TPMS have to be flashed to your computer in order to work. Dealership cost $100, not sure what other tire shops charge, but you can sniff around for quotes.

    3.The steel wheel TPMS will not fit right into the 17" sport wheels or the 16" OR wheels. It's a different degree offset. You can take your tpms out of the old wheels and make a TPMS pipe bomb to fool your computer, or like I did, just put black tape over the light.

    4.If they are basically new, then no, they shouldn't be out of balance yet.
