Anyone that had the TPMS, if you have after market wheels, how did you mange it? I don't want the light all the time and I don't want to cut wires either.

I have the light on all the time as well. I have silver 16" TRD rims like yours and didn't want to dismantle them just to get the sensors out. Besides, I always argue the question what did we do before TPMS. The light doesn't bother me at all. I like my current wheel and tire combo well enough that having that little light on just reminds me how cool my FJ looks, lol.

Not sure how similar the FJ is to the Tacoma - but I would think it's near the same. You would just need to identify the TPMS wire if it's different

Not a bad point as far as the not bothering you part. I like the idea in the link making it with a couple blade connectors.

It looks like I might be going that route. Thanks for letting me know.

Some people have made pressurized chambers out of pvc pip/fittings and placed their tpms sensors in that. Place it in the jack storage area and not have to worry about the lights. There are a few threads in the blue room on this.

I guess because no one really wants to buy the TT's and I kinda want to keep them, I wont have to worry about the light. Now I need to sell the Mickey Thompson Classic II wheels.
