    I have aftermarket steelies on my truck and the TPMS' work fine, I did hear otherwise from some members on here though.

    Tons, but the wheels rubbed on my calipers so I got spacers which caused most of the issues. Lots of fender trimming and lifted the front 1.75" to avoid cab mount rub.

    Wheelers offroad makes a 16" steel wheel that will clear the calipers and avoid rubbing.

    Avid front light bar, Avid bolt on sliders, Avid rear bumper protector, T-Rex grill & bumper insert. Still lots to do though.
    Looking through the posts & seeing the pics of the TPMS, would the factory TPMS on the steelies be able to be used on the new steelies? It's a 2012 Taco & looking for wheels. Prefer Pro Comp series 98. Just wondering if I can take the OEM off & place them on the new rims?

    Any decent shop should be able to make them work.
