    I'm a newbie and just bought my first new Taco. It's an '09 Double Cab 4x4 SR5 with the Pyrite Mica color.

    I am planning on upgrading my steel wheels to the TRD 5 spoke alloy wheels. From what I understand, I will need to buy 20 degree sensors for the TRD wheels since the steel wheels are not compatible. I would like to know how much the 20 degree sensors will cost.

    Welcome to TW & congrats on your new tacoma!

    A tire shop may be able to turn the sensors for you at a different angle on the TRD alloys. They will break down your steelies take the sensors out & put on em the new ones. That keeps the same code in the tpms ecu. The dealer wil try to sell

    Also a few members have had luck going to some aftermarket rims with the steel wheel sensors too.

    I opted to keep my steelies with winter tires & sensors. The TRD OR have my summer AT tires on them. No light comes on until I get out of range which is around 50 miles. When I get home, I reset the light. Weird.

    Again, enjoy the forum great folks here with lots of good info & mods!
