    Hello all, I have done a search and read a bunch of posts and was hoping to get some opinions. I just got a DCLB Taco with the TRD Sport package and am not thrilled with the wheels (265/65/17). So I ordered a set of FJ anthracite wheels and plan on putting some medium treads (265/75/16) on them. BFG AT, General AT2, maybe Cooper ST-C. I'm not sure what to do with the stock wheels or about TPMS.

    I was thinking about keeping the stock wheels stacked in the garage and just putting some tape over the TPMS indicator for when I go on longer trips. I was also thinking of selling the stock wheels/tires, but it would suck to pay for the TPMS to be removed from the stock wheels and installed on the FJ's and then have to pay to re-mount and balance the stock wheels to sell them. So what would you all do?

    1) stack stock wheels with TPMS in the garage, cover indicator (F TPMS)
    2) swap TPMS, remount stock and stack them in garage
    3) swap TPMS and get stock tires re-mounted and sell them
    4) swap TPMS, sell tires and wheels separate (don't remount)
    5) Other - lemme know

    Thanks!

    Im in the same situation as you. As of right now I am going with option 2. If I feel like Im not going to use them again I will sell them. I also looked at purchasing another set of tpms for the new wheels, but its going to cost me about $300 total for the sensors and to recalibrate them for the truck.

    Stock for now
    I vote option 3 especially if you think you will never ever use those tires/rims again.
    Selling them will offset the remount charge.
    You will not lose valuable storage space plus
    you get the advantage of using the system even though its a pita on occasions like this.


    I only kept mine in the stockers for I use two sets of rims for winter & summer.
