    I'm guessing you need a set but if you need 1 or 2 hit me up, $60 shipped for both or $30 for 1.

    Worst case is you have to buy some TPMS straps(like these) and make any sensor work with any rims. If you have 4 sensors already from your old rims I would look for a strap kit that'll fit them-Easy swap that way.

    Discount tire sells them, idk for how much. If you have tpms from the alloy wheels (16" OR / 17" Sport) they will probably work with the FJ wheels. Another route would be to flip the tpms 180 degrees.

    It's been reported that the original Tacoma steel wheel 40 degree sensors can be rotated to work with the Toyota alloys, as stated above.
    Apparently the sensors can be more vulnerable to damage during dismount if the tech is not aware of this relocation.

    Another method would be to source a set of 20 degree Toyota sensors that are designed for the alloys.

    Then there's the generic "strap" method.

    Finally, use conventional stems and disable the TPMS system.

    Thanks for the referral. The sensors I am selling will work with the 2008-12 FJ according to this site Pacific 42607-33011.

    If you buy mine and they don't work, just return them within 10 days and I will give your money back minus $2 for shipping.

    Your local auto parts store or tire retailers carry a tpms sensor called ORANGE SENSOR they will mount in any angle ( but do require to be programmed ) the handheld unit reads the old ID of the original sensor & duplicates it to the new sensor ... anyway I paid 29 or 30 dollars at the parts store for mine.. Goodluck Dave

    How do you reprogram them? Can it be done yourself or does a tire shop have to do it? Looking to sell my stock wheels and tires. Putting on some aftermarkets and looking for the cheapest option to keep the tpms working or at least keep the light off. I've never seen the light, blinking or solid? If it's not blinking it might not be so bad.

    ''using the new orange sensor'' The new sensor program does require the handheld not sure what it cost to be done (I work at a tire retailer and we were playing w/it since it was new) I like the purpose of the tpms and plan on retaining mine ,but if I was going to try to run mine w/out buying new ones I think I would take my steel wheel (spare) and drill 3 new holes and mount all 4 sensors in it to keep the light off... I cant stand lights on or squeeks Dave:D
