Thanks!
Switch the old sensors to the new wheels.

You can contact wileetundra over at TS. He will rent you an interface cable you can use with your laptop. It might be cheaper to go to the dealer if all you want to do in program the TPMS, but if you want to change other options, this might be cost effective.

Another option is to purchase a TPMS strap kit. Straps the TPMS sensor to the wheel if the angle of your TPMS sensor does not match/will not work with your new wheel.

I got told by my dealer that the TPMS would not work with my 35s because they require a higher tire pressure than stock. They said the sensor would go off because the pressure was to high as well as to low. Is this true??

No, you reset the pressure with the button

Tony is right the threshold of range can be reset, if not Toyota would be replacing computers in the Rock Warriors like they will be in the trail teams Fj cruisers for the new campaign. Toyota will be setting the Rock Warrior pressure to 46 pounds

So you are now the official government spokesperson?

Statements like these give the internet a bad name. Think before you post

I'm looking to get a set of sensors for my truck as well to clear the sensor light. I don't plan to install them in my wheels, I plan on doing the pressurized pipe mod because I installed an aftermarket tpms monitor to view my pressures at all times. What model number sensor would work? 42607-0c030...42607-0c050...42607-0c060...all of them? Thanks in advance
