    Ok so i searched around a little and still no clue on this matter.


    I have a 2010 Single Cab Prerunner that had the stock steel cheapo's. Bought some 16" TRD Alloys off of here and there are missing the TPMS in them. So I need to know which TPMS sensors will work in these wheels. i.e. part numbers etc.....

    And read something about them have to be programmed??? reson I ask is i see on ebay some sets for like 56 bucks shipped. Will it be plug in and go or............


    Can anyone please school my ass in this matter? I would greatly appreciate it!!!

    The valve stem angles are different...but I beleive you'll be able to turn your current ones 180 degrees and they should still fit.

    You can also get a strap kit to use the same sensors and you'll just have to get new regular valve stems.

    If you do reuse your original sensors...All you need is to get the tires built up and then use the pressure reset button. If you do get a new set of sensors...You will have to get them programmed.

    Some tires shops can do it...Dealerships cost anywhere between 50-90 I think...

    I was having a discussion with my mechanic about disabling them permanently. He pulled the schematics and found a wire which is a ground that turns on the TPMS light when it gets a signal from the monitoring system. It's on the passenger side and he said that without a doubt, disconnecting that wire will disable the dash light. I am going to do that, and then use my brain to monitor tire pressure, like I have always done.

    I'm great about monitoring my tire pressure as a maintainence item.

    However the day that my tire started going flat on the freeway and the light cued me into it...I'm glad I had it. I woulda driven the truck until the tire overheated and who knows what coulda happened.

    Do I need it...No...but it's not that hard to keep it working.

    can you take a pic of this wire? I check my own weekly and just wanted to get the damn light of my dash. But will chop a wire in a heart beat if i know it would not make any other lights pop and keeps the LP light off.

    I didn't even get the truck yet! So, no pic. My mechanic is a Toyota specialist, and is very good. He figured it out in all of 5 minutes using some software that he has on his computer that shows all kinds of diagrams. He said it was a very quick and easy job. When I get my truck, I am going to pay him to show me where it is located, then I can do it myself. Ideally, I would be able to plug it in for summer driving, then unplug it for the winter when I'm running bigger tire/different rims without TPMS. That's the plan anyway. All you're looking for is the ground that goes to the light for the TPMS and all the mod does is prevent the bulb from lighting.
