    did whoever did your tires use the stock stems? They have the built in sensors. Also, make sure you check your spare tire as that has a sensor too

    1) One (or more) of your tires is low
    OR
    2) Whoever installed your tires broke a sensor

    Does the light flash for ~30 seconds and become solid, or flash once and then become solid? This will greatly help me in answering your question more thoroughly.

    If they didn't put your TPMS (TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSYTEM) in the new rims, then the tire pressure light will stay on, as there is no sensor readings to say your pressures are good. You need to have them installed, or wait till you get your "summers" back on. Tape over the light may help till you can decide. I would also suggest you spend some more time with your manual. It covers the basics pretty well. Best of luck.

    The stems in your old wheels were the tpms sensors...without them (or the correct replacement) your system will not function. Do you still have the old tires/wheels? Also, didn't the place that put the new wheels on say something about sending you down the road with the tpms system not working like it was when you drove in?

    Here's the 2007 owners manual...
    http://www.toyota.com/t3Portal/document/om/OM35869U/pdf/07omsour/2007/07tacoma/17.pdf

    See page 32..."Tire pressure warning system". Make sure all tires (including the spare) are at the same psi and follow the instructions for resetting. Hope that helped.
