    I recently purchased the Fuel Vapor wheels and totally forgot about the TPMS sensors for them. I was told that the sensors that are in my stock wheels won't work with the Fuel wheels so was wondering if anyone else has these wheels and what sensors did you go with that works with those wheels.

    Pretty sure the alloy stock wheel tpms sensors move right over (mine did) If your stock wheels were steel and not alloy you may need the alloy tpms sensors. There also might be an aftermarket alternative.

    I do not have experience with the Fuel wheels. However, OEM alloy wheels and usually aftermarket wheels are all 40* and take that sensor vs an OEM steel wheel sensor that is angled 20*.

    Depending upon your truck it could be one of these two sensors:


    42607-0C091 (2018-19 TPMS)

    42607-06030 (2020 TPMS)

    Can confirm fuels work with stock alloy sensor.

    The 2020 Tundra with alloy wheels and without push start still use the 0C091. The 2020’s with push start use the 06030

    Yes, you are correct! I forgot to also add that earlier.

    Alloy wheels take 40° sensor, steel OEM wheels take 20° sensor. I know because I swapped my Steelies for new alloy wheels and the tire shop couldn’t make the original TPMS sensors work.

    I know this is OLD but want to update with my experience from Today.
    The tpms tire sensors WORK from stock Steel to Limited Alloy 20's (Toyota OEM 20s).
    100% confirmed with my experience.

    Yes the sensor must be flipped on the inside of the rim, It does not fit flush- It does not matter.
    I helped my tire guy do the install and I have NO experience in it. It was simple and if you are careful it
    will work out great. The next time I get tires (in 3 years), I will probably get a new set but until then-
    My stock sensors worked great and display tire pressures as they should in my 2018 Tundra.

    My first post here, Just wanted to contribute something.

    Thanks for the info. You are correct it can work but sometimes the sensors can get broken in the process like in my case. The tire shop was able to install my old TPMS sensors from my Steelie’s to my new alloy wheels but they broke one mounting the tire.

    In your case it looks like you got it to work, just remember to be careful dismounting the tire in the future so you don’t break them.

    There has been mention that even though the sensors, albeit flipped, work well they are prone to breakage/failure over time.

    Glad they worked for you this time though.

    They could definitely break easily as the tire is pulled back over the sensor (basically the sensor just sticks out alot more from the inside of the rim).
    I do imagine that the next time they are unmounted that it could break the sensors. But this definitely saved me from buying another set of sensors
    right now. I imagine by the time my next set of tires go on that the sensors will need replacing regardless (battery life and so forth).
