    I am going to be putting T4R pro wheels on my 2019 SR. I have read I can not use the TPMS from the steel wheels on alloy wheels. Do I need 315mhz sensors? Are they all the same? I really don't want to buy $400 in oem sensors.

    Any help is great.

    The issue is more of the angle of the valve stem relative to the sensor at the bottom. On oem sensors the valve stem is "fixed" in that position, and it makes it so you can't swap them between steel and alloys. You can always give it a shot though.

    The replacement sensor we use for every Toyota is a 7002A RediSensor. These are cool because the valve stem is not solidly attached to the sensor, so it actually forms to the angle of the wheel as you tighten it down. Also, if you were to hit a rock or something and break your valve stem (which I've done several times..) you can just get a new stem and snap the sensor in there.

    If you look up the part number you'll see what I mean. Do not buy oem sensors, waste of money. Stick with a name brand though, like NAPA, Schraeder, Huff, or Denso

    Just buy low angle (20 degree angle) PMV-C015 sensors from eBay. They run about $50-$100 for set of four. Your current valve stem angle is too steep for Toyota factory alloy rims. Tacoma (and majority is Toyota models) uses 315MHz.

    Where would I find the 7002a Redisensors? Quick Amazon search came back with 0 and I can’t via google with that specific number.

    There's a ton of sensors that will work for tacomas, I just mentioned these because I know the design works well on any wheel, and the stem is replaceable. You may be able to find a set for cheaper, but Dill is top of the line. Redi-sensor just means it comes pre-programmed for several protocols, all you need to do is install and write the ID via OBD2.

    OEM Denso sensors are on Rock Auto for $42. I've also heard if you turn the sensor 180°, it'll work.

    I've heard both.
    That flipping the steel wheel sensors will work and that they will leak air.

    Does anyone know which chain tire shops program or relearn tpms sensors?

    I’m going through this cluster f@#k right now. There are the hi-line sensors which give each tire PSI and location and Lo line sensors which just
    Give a light like on my ‘17 SR. If anyone knows the right sensor for using 4runner alloy’s on my SR, please let me know. I’d appreciate the help.

    Thank‘s for the response Nate, Ive heard that you can do it that way but some have said that it doesn’t work so well. I don’t mind buying sensors if I knew what would work with my 4runner alloys. Now there’s hi line, low line, 20 degree, 40 degree, steel, alloy. Looks like the Gov’t screwed us again as usual.

    How much would it be just to have a chain tire shop like discount tire install some of their sensors? I’ve heard they replace them and can flash them to our 3rd gens. I’m also curious about this subject because I have steelies and just purchased some rays

    That’s my next step, going to a tire shop and find out the cost. I’d pay 60 bucks to have new sensors and programmed to the truck. I didn’t want
    anything to do with this tpms crap, I check my own tires and pressures but it looks like we’re all stuck with it.

    I agree! Screw This tpms lol. But I’m not gonna have a tire light on my dash for years... especially on a brand new truck.

    I have the dill 7002a sensors. I have a 2019 OR. New rims en route; Keeping factory shoes and TPMS for backup.
    Can anybody confirm the 7002a sensors work for a 2019 Tacoma (or for 2016-2019 3rd gens)? Or should I follow route and purchase new 7003a sensors as stated on the dill website? (Do both sensors run the same frequency?)

    I've heard the PMV-C015 come in both angles, is the 42607-06030 correct for aluminum? Found this number on ebay saying they are are and are not correct.

    Changing wheels used to be an easy and fun thing to do. Not so much after the the Federal Nannies got involved, Now there seem to be as
    many TPMS sensor types as there are wheels.
    My SR has “low line” sensors which do not give individual tire pressures and locations and then there are “High line” sensors on the higher
    level trims which do.
    Different angles different frequencies, Programming, I’m just wanting the late model 4runner alloy wheels but still don’t know which sensors
    I need to buy.
    I went to a couple of tire shops and they weren’t any help either. I’m thinking it’s just easier to keep my Steel wheels.
