    I am swapping my 17 Tundra steel wheels for TRD wheels. using same tires and sensors. Do the sensors need reprogramming?

    Buy new sensors. I did the same wheel swap and bought some new sensors on ebay really affordable and had to have them programed to my truck at the stealership for $100.

    Well I had the rims swapped and was ready to put in new sensors when the manager of the Discount Tire I was at (and a 2015 Tundra owner) told me that he has used the steel wheel sensors several times without a hiccup. So I let him save me some $ and gave it a try.

    You had a decent installer. What has and will happen many times is the steel wheel sensor will get broken during a dismount. Only plus.........Discount had to install new (correct) sensors. Just maybe let the future installers know if and when you have a dismount/mount. What a change from steel to TRD...:thumbsup:

    So it bugged me all day that the 40 deg sensors where working, but knowing that it wasn't by design and would probably fail at the worst time. I went back and had 20 deg sensors installed
