new wheels/5th wheel TPMS?

Got new wheels for the 4runner and when I asked the tire shop to use the metal valve stems that came with the wheels they said it wasn't possible due to the TPMS monitoring system


that got me thinking, how exactly does the TPMS work on our vehicle? when you rotate your tires does do you have to do any reprogramming?

Yes, I have a set of TPMS sensors in my summer wheels as well, and the tire shop reprograms them when I swap wheels.

new wheels/5th wheel TPMS?

You can either re-use your oem tpms or get another set. If you re-use the oem ones, no programming needed. If you add new ones, youíll need to add program them into your trucks.

If your adding a 5th tpms, youíll have to program that as well.

thanks, so if you rotate/swap wheels you have to reprogram your tpms every time?

is this something you can do at home with a tool? i got my tires through costco and they will only install the wheels on the tires (won't install on vehicle because i upsized).

i'm guessing that you only program the 5th TPMS when it gets added to the tire rotation schedule? and similarly, when you rotate tires they require reprogramming?

I believe only the Limited models ECU can store 5 TPMS sensors. Any other model, can only store 4 sensors in the ECU.
