    That being said that makes a HUGE difference now we know the direction you want to go in. So if you're goal is to make it a street truck than I'd say YES they are better than the stock wheels. Since a street truck is your goal I'd say you need to drop it at least 2" and get some nice aggressive street tires. Something like these...

    ^^those are not "street tires" those are MTs on street rims. Op your brakes will not fail with slighty bigger tires. Alot of guys run 33" and even 35" tires without upgrading the brakes

    Pretty sure there is now way the TPMS sensors can just work. As far as I know the sensors have to sync with the truck so even if they were Toyota sensors you couldn't just put new ones on the truck.

    here is a picture of my old 4-lugger with 265s on it. No brake problems, actually handled a lot better once I got rid of those thin little stock tires.

    Was going to say the same thing... Take care of Ford in the center. I think it is a sharp upgrade though!

    And as others have said bigger tires (not much bigger) or lower it slightly. That will give it the aggressive street look.

    I say drop it 2 inches. Dropped it for you in this picture. Solves your brake issue and having to buy tires.

    This will help you compare the two instead of having to go back and forth.
