    I have an 08 DC SR5 TRD Sport which has aftermarket alloy wheels.

    My question is since the truck is equipted with the TPMS do you "HAVE" to have them? IE will it creat a dummy light or dinging if you don't have them?

    I am wanting to use a stock set of alloys no TPMS with mud tires for the winter.

    Input?

    I think you will have the TPMS fault light illuminated if you don't have the sensors installed and calibrated in the winter wheels.

    I think it gives you an idiot light on your dash in the lower left side IIRC. Some folks just put something over the light to keep it from shining in their faces.

    I have TPMS and haven't switched rims or anything so I may be totally out in left field on this though. I just remember reading about it when people talk about snow vs summer tires with rims.

    If I remember right, you'll get a dummy light.

    So will there be any issue when I go back to the summer wheels with TPMS after running the winter wheels with no TPMS?

    your system should recognize them. you will probably need to hit the reset button under the dash. on a side note i read threads where people ised two sets of wheels and if they parked by the set with the sensors in them the puter on the truck knew this and the light would stay off for x amount of miles away from home.

    :laugh: That is too funny. I've never seen what the sensors look like but I wonder if you could zip tie them up in the area of the wheel to fool the system. Totally defeats the purpose but at least you don't get the light. :D
