    I was looking to buy a set of the factory Toyota Baja 16" wheels to replace my factory styled steel 16" wheels. I was told the following:

    When replacing factory styled steel wheel, Toyota has new TPMS sensors
    and
    fit kits because the accessory wheels have a different angle to them.

    42607-06011 $73.38/ea
    04423-35020 supersedes to 04423-0E010 $5.1/ea


    So my question is if the sensors off of my steel wheels would transfer over to the factory TRD alloys without issue and if the 'fit kits' are only necessary for the Baja wheels. Has anyone done a swap from factory steel to factory alloys while maintaining the use of the TPMS? This information will useful for me to make a decision on what alloys to buy.

    I've done steel to aftermarket alloy w/o issue. OE Alloy might be different story though.
