    just purchased a new 2017 SR access cab 2.7 5-speed with the steel wheels a few weeks and have some questions (new to tacoma, always had a F150)

    looking to swap to the black 17" 4runner pro sema wheels
    • will the factory TPMS sensors work from the steel wheels?
    • will the stock chrome lug nut work from the steel wheels on the sema wheels?
    • will it effect the power and gearing much to go with a larger 265-70-17 tire?
    also where would be the cheapest place to get these wheels?

    1. NO
    2. NO
    3. NO

    The TPMS can work, sort-of, but you have to flip them 180 in the wheel and be EXTREMLY careful mounting the tires so you don't brake one off. I had a great hassel getting mine to work, and they quit reading out on the corners after the first rotation. The yellow light is out, but no pressures showing. There is a lot of stuff here on TW about this.
    I think the lhe lug nuts for the alloys need a flat nut, not the acorn shape. My TRD Pro wheels did anyway. DT cut me a deal at "only" $3.00 a piece because they were doing the tires and wheels.
    I get 19-20 MPG and am about 1-2 MPH faster with those tires at 70 MPH.

    You will likely feel a loss in power going to a 265/70 17 in the SR access cab.

    At least one of the respondents to your thread is rolling large in an SR5. Different truck.

    Correct. I failed to notice you were in a 2.7.

    No worries man. Not calling you out. Just wanted the OP to know what he was getting into.

    I don't think, with the right wheel and tire combo, that the decline in power would be that significant.

    For sure you would notice, say, 285/70 17 bogging your shit down big time.

    There are a few guys on here who have done 33's or 35's on the 4 cylinder SR. I wouldn't recommend it though.

    Looks cool but that's about it.

    yeah, i have been thinking about just going with a 16 " mb 352 wheel and a 265 70 16 which is only like 1/2" overall larger than the 245-75-16 stock tires

    wonder if the stock tpms sensors work with the aftermarket wheels? and are the aftermarket sensors from discount tire any good?

    I've had three different set of wheels installed by Discount Tire. Never a problem with the TPMS they use.

    I ordered new wheels a few weeks ago and had them installed a few days ago. They just take care of it. It's part of the price.
