    I purchased some Second hand wheels from an OR Taco yesterday and had them installed last night. When I came out this morning 3 of them were flat. Come to find out the TPMS sensors are different for aluminum wheels.

    New sensors could be a deal breaker. Proceed with caution.

    The tpms from the steel wheels need to be rotated 180 degrees to fit correctly in oem aluminum wheels or scs wheels like mine. I damaged an o ring on one of mine while doing this but a $4 kit from autozone fixed it. Installer just has to be careful when putting tires on new rims because the tpms stick out farther then normal. My guess is that the installer didn't rotate the tpms which cause it to flex against the wheel creating a leak or the o rings were damaged during install.
