    I'm sure this question has been asked a thousand times on TW, but I can't find the answer. I'm planning on replacing my OEM Factory Wheels on my '19 OR with Steelies. I'm not replacing the tires. Will the factory tires fit the steel spare?

    Yes. The tire on your spare is the same as the other 4.

    Be sure to get tapered (aka acorn) lugnuts. The factory shank-style lugnuts aren't intended to fit steel wheels long-term - there's only a small chamfer on the end.

    Also the TPMS sensors in your alloy wheels don't fit steel wheels (different mounting angle). You'll need to get new sensors and get them programmed. That is, if you care about TPMS.

    I was going to order these: https://www.ebay.com/itm/400615761156

    But it sounds like these are the wrong ones? Geez, this sounds like more trouble than its worth with getting new sensors and getting them programmed..

    These would work (3 bucks cheaper too): https://www.ebay.com/itm/273884137940

    If you want minimum amount of work just to black out everything, this is the path of least resistance: https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads...cap-inlays-and-tacoma-decals-for-sale.537257/

    Yeah, seen this route before. It'll probably be the way to go for now. I'm waiting until I need new tires to get new tires, so thinking about getting new wheels then as well instead of going this route. Thanks for the help!

    If your OR wheels were alloy, it's my understanding you will need different TPM sensors for the steel wheels -
    The alloy wheels use a 20 deg sensor and I think the steel wheels require a 40 degree sensor, if my memory is correct

    Roger. I'm going with the vinyl stickers this go-around. I'll wait a few more months and then pull the trigger on these wheels: https://fifteen52.com/collections/o...nalog-hd-asphalt-black?variant=15113773940802

    can't justify the cost on those just yet, so this will do in the meantime. I'm leaving this thread up if anyone else has this question though.
