    Here's the background
    I've got some Toyo M/T's on right now that i absolutely love except for when we tow our trailer.....they're bigger/heaver than factory, so they kick me out of the powerband that i like and i cant really keep it in S5, so i have to go in S4 @ 3k rpm unless i'm going downhill

    I've still got my OEM Michelin's in the garage that still have some life left, i found a local guy with some TRD OR wheels, that don't have TPMS. I"m thinking about getting the set of wheels and slapping my old Michelin's on there. Do the Amazon TPMS's work decently? Is the re-learning process pretty simple?

    Gotcha. I might roll the dice with the ones i link'd. Worst case is i'll have a tpms light shining while i tow our trailer, not the end of the world.

    Anyone know if once they are programmed i can just swap back and forth with the relearn process?

    I have used dozens of the Autel MX sensors and haven’t had any problems.

    Have you swapped between tires with different sensors before?
    Wondering if I just press-hold the tpms button if it'll just pick up the new set

    The sensors have to be programmed. Pushing the TPMS button won’t do anything. I like the Autel sensor and programmer because it’s easy to clone the sensor.

    well wish i would have saw that earlier, just got some tires installed on the second set of wheels.

    Gonna clean em up and then install them...we'll see if we need a programmer or not.

    You can still program them in the tire. It’s just much easier before installing them. I recommend this programmer:

    I'll look into it. I'll be swapping back and forth between tires, so it might just be better to have a shop do it then pay $300, but maybe i can find a deal on one.

    Interestingly enough, it appears that it maybe updating the tpms's. When i first swapped the tires, they all read around 41psi and 115ish deg...now they've changed a bit, first the drivers side upadted yesterday and now the rear passenger side this morning. PXL_20240605_155222971.MP.jpg

    Well, the TPMS light came on. :mad:

    I swung by Americas Tire, and they tried to program them and they weren't able to read the sensors. Looks like im SOL.

    I tried to do the hold the TPMS button until the dash light flashes, and then drive it around....worth a shot but doubtfull.
