    New to the Taco family. Looking to upgrade the stock wheels on an 06' Tacoma SR5 4x4. The stockers are the steel 16" w/tpms. Can I replace them with alloy wheels?
    What type of problems will I encounter if I do? Any suggestions on wheel type ?

    Thanks,
    Craig

    Generally speaking, your TPMS from a steel wheel will not fit an aluminum alloy but there are exceptions. You will need new lugs for your new alloy wheels. The type of wheel is up to you. Good luck!
