    Ok, I am getting sick of staring at my plain grey steel factory wheels. Looking for some aftermarket ones with a little eyeball. Not really interested in going plus size or lifting the truck. What do I need to get my TPMs to work with aftermarket wheels? Is it as simple as just having the tire place pull the old TPMs off and put them on the new rims? TIA for any info...

    1) For a lot less than new rims you can throw some paint on your stockers for a one off look.

    2) Yes... The tire place doing the swap should be able to pull the sensors from your stock rims and put them in the new ones. They may not fit...but I'm not sure if there is any where that lists what rims fit what sensors...

    If you have a discount tire shop around you i would go to them, they looked in the computer to see if mine would fit and they did i have american racing mojave wheels 16x8 and i have had no problems.
