    I have factory 16x7 steel wheels with 245/75 16s and will be going to 265/75 16s with 16x8 AR Mojave wheels. Anything I need to worry about with the TPMS? The place I'm taking it to is a reputable shop that I know has done work on Tacomas before so they should know what to do. I'd just like to know before I go in there in the next couple weeks.
    BTW...This is for an '08 Double Cab 4x4 V6 auto. Thanks!:)

    EDIT TO ADD: I think I found the answer finally during a search but if you still want to answer I'd appreciate it.

    If the new rims are alloy rims, the TPMS from the steel wheels won't work. I had to find some sensors when I went from steel wheels to alloys. I found them on ebay and had the dealer install them and it worked well.

    +1, the sensors of angeled differently for the alloys as compared to the steelies and as such will not seat properly in the new rims. If you really want the TPMS, you can go the above route, or you can do the TPMS mod and disable the system.

    They should work. I just had the same wheels installed yesterday with 265/75-16 BFG Mud Terrains. TPS are from the 17" Sport Alloys though.

    Edit: Have you already purchased your wheels? I got mine from wheelandtirecombos.com for $577 shipped. They only took 4 days to ship direct from American Racing. Real good guys to deal with too.

    Ilovetacos,

    Thats where I'm getting them from. Sweet lookin' Taco btw!:)
    I don't need a TPMS, never have. I'll probably just disable it.
    Can they add the center caps at an additional cost? I'd like to have them.

    Thanks!

    I believe you can buy them but I think there almost an addt'l $100. When I purchased them I asked why they sell them so much cheaper and he said they keep prices low by having them dropped shipped + not including center caps. I really didn't mind because I wasn't going to use them anyway.

    Do you have a close up pic of your wheels without the center caps I could see?

    Of course I do...I painted the hubs with Duplicolor Graphite Wheel paint. The hubs look lighter in the pic but in person it's a pretty good match. I also painted the TPS and valve caps to match the wheels. :D
