    I bought some VDO tpms as my wheels were steel and aluminum ones use a different tpms. I have used VDO tpms on my Tacoma with no issues. I tried to program the tpms to the truck but Techstream allows only 7 digits and the tpms is 8 digits. Has any encounter this before?

    So I have no idea about TPMS programming, but are some models different for vehicles? What I mean, is a 7 digit TPMS module for trucks and an 8 digit module for cars?

    I’m so glad I only have to deal with TPMS on two of my four vehicles. What a PITA.

    For some reason some use seven digit identification code and other eight digit. This should have been pretty simple, with my Tacoma it was straight forward. Hopefully I dont have to take these sensors off and get other ones.

    I sure hope you don’t either. I have heard it is pretty easy to program the modules.

    Good luck, and I’m sure someone with more knowledge can help you out.

    So an update for future reference if anyone with a 2018 steel wheel upgrades to aluminum aftermarket or oem wheel.

    TPMS for steel wheels on 2018 is 42607-0c101, this is a 7-digit ID tpms, 2017 and back used 42607-0C070, which is an 8-digit ID tpms.

    If you change to an aftermarket or oem aluminum wheel make sure the 20 degree tpms replacement you buy has a 7 digit ID. In my case I went with 42607-33021 Toyota tpms. I will report back if it works, I should get it next week.

    Installed the sensor, was able to enter the IDs through tech stream, can’t get a reading. IDs are correcrt and the frequency is the same. Not sure what I am missing.

    Did you ever get the new senors to work? I'm having the same issue with the 2018 senors after i switched from steel to Toyota TSS rims.

    Let me know how those work out for you. I can tell you 42607-0C080 do not work either. They were what I was told would work from the tire place I bought them from online.



    Someone may want to check with their Toyota dealer to see if the part number listed above is the correct part. I don't have the best dealer or another tire shop any where near me to verify my what my dealer told me was true.

    I just ran into this issue. The old TPMS will not work with the 2018.

    I have a 2018 that came with steel wheels. The dealer sold me some take off TRD wheels. I could have used the tpms from the steel wheels but if you ever have a flat they will break. I bought the tpms from the dealer that are for a 2018 with aluminum wheels. 2017 and older tpms will not work on 2018 and newer.

    Haha. This is smokediver65. I originally sent you the part numbers. I was just backing up what you said.

    I have a 2010 SR5 with stock 18" wheels like this. I bought another on CL to have 5 same wheels & tires and am hoping to get its TPMS monitor into my system. I have a cable & tech stream can I add the 5th wheel?

    Thanks

    The 2018 tundra uses a high sensor meaning it reports actual pressure readings the 17s and older have a low sensor they are not compatible with the 18s. There are no aftermarket sensors at this time that can be programmed to an 18 with a high sensor.... I have yet to find one that will work

    Hey folks,
    Brand new here to the forum and I was hoping you all can confirm a couple things for me. I’m about to pull out what hair I have left over these tpms sensors. I am putting on 18 inch rockstar II wheels on my 2018 Tundra sr5 ( removing steel OEM). Local Toyota dealer insists that the sensors 42607-0c080 have to be the right ones because of the offset angle (?). But from what I understand of the previous posts 42607-0c091 is the correct one because it has a 7 digit sensor code instead of 8. I’m sorry I’m recapping everything, but just trying to understand and make the right choice. I plan on keeping the sensors in my steel wheels for a winter tire set. And trying to get a new set of sensors for the new wheels. Thanks

    So steel and aluminium wheels have different sensors. Steel do no report actual pressure and aluminum do. So if you have factory steel wheels you have to go with those sensors. Do not go aftermarket at this time I couldn't get them to program to my 18. If you give the dealer your vin they should be able to look up the correct part number I believe for steel its the 0c070 and I have aluminum wheels which came with the 0c091 sensors. Yes the angle of the sensor could be an issue as well but I had no concerns on my fuel vapor wheels for my truck. And the angle between the 2 sensors could be different as well but if you want the sensor to work you have to get what came on your truck from factory.

    Ok so you replaced factory aluminum wheels with aftermarket and you are using the 0c091 sensors. So even if I am moving from steel to aluminum wheels I should get the sensors for steel because that’s what my tpms is set up for? So in theory if I didn’t want to keep sensors in my oem wheels I can just use them in the new aftermarket s?

    Yes absolutely highly recommended you swap your sensors to the new wheels that will also save you from having to get them programmed. The only issue you may run into is the angle of the sensor could interfere with the rim itself when you install it you may have to install the sensor upside down so it's angled toward the tire and not the wheel. Only problem with that is if you get a flat you could potentially break the sensor off.

    I just did a matching 5th spare on my 2011. I was told that the system only reads 4 sensors. So my tire guy didn’t even bother puting the sensor in my spare.
    As long as I don’t have a light on or a piece of tape covering the light, I don’t care.

    Just put Fuel 18X9 rims on a 2017 DC. Couldn't use the factory TPMS because the stem wasn't long enough. Long story short, I have the good old rubber valve stems in now. Now I have to not only find a aftermarket sensor that will work, I also have to find one with interchangeable stems to fit the rims. What a PITA.

    I have 18x9 Fuel Anza wheels I'm going to have installed on my crewmax. I have the 18" Limited 2018 wheels and was hoping to use those sensors. Think they'll work ok?
