    2007 Tacoma PreRunner originally equipped with steel wheels and TPMS? Tire store said they couldn't install the sensors in alloy wheels from a 2010 tacoma which are on the truck now because they came out of steel wheels? Are there two different sizes ?

    TIA

    That doesnt sound right to me. They used my TPMS sensors off my Sport wheels and installed them on aftermarket wheels.

    I purchased the Enkie wheels from the dealer several months after I bought my truck new. Apparently, they took the TPMS from the stock steel wheels and put them in the alloy wheels.

    The truck is nearly six years old and have not had the first problem. I have bought one new set of tires. The dealer nor the tire store told me I had the wrong TPMS in my wheels. Just sayin'

    OK, all those who responded positively to swapping the TPMS did so from steel wheels to aftermarket alloys. Has anyone confirmed that the same applies to factory alloys? Again, the alloys that are on the truck now are 2010 Tacoma Sport wheels.

    If you don't want the sensors on the wheels, you can get a piece of pvc pipe and caps, install the sensor in a cap and use pvc cement to seal the caps on. Fill them up with air and put under seats in truck to keep the light off!

    It does apply, just turn them 180 and remember to tell any tire shop in the future so they will be careful in dismounting.

    Also, shop around. When I replaced my rims, I just bought new Toyota OEM sensors on eBay for $100.00. Old sensors are still in the original TRD Offroad rims just sitting in my garage. Someone should buy them...
