Default 2010 Tacoma Wheel Swap Guidance

I recently bought a 2010 Tacoma Access, and for a variety of reasons the
deal was too good to pass up, but it came with steel 16x7 wheels. I'd like
to upgrade to an OEM alloy wheels, and found plenty of options on local
craigslist listings. Here is my question. My Tacoma was equipped with TPMS
which appears to be provided by a small sending unit on the inside of the
valve stem. If I wanted to maintain the tire pressure monitoring
capability, could I just have the valve stems with sending unit swapped to
the new (used) wheels? Any reason to avoid any of the available sizes that
would fit? 17 inch? Even 18 inch? Assuming appropriate tire sizes to
maintain rolling circumference?

Thanks

Wheel offset and backspace should be the same as well as tire width
could cause clearance problems. Don't know about the valve stem as mine
doesn't have the TPMS. A couple of sites that may be helpful--
http://www.1010tires.com/TireSizeCalculator.asp and
https://www.rsracing.com/tech-wheel.html#backspace Found one more-- http://www.tacomaterritory.com/wiki/..._Wheel_Fitment

There are two types of sensors for the Taco, one with a 20-deg angle used
for the steel wheels and one with a 40-deg angle for the aluminum wheels.
The steel-wheel sensor won't seat properly in aluminum wheels. However, you
can strap the sensor to the wheel and use a conventional valve stem.

The 17" wheel that comes with the Double Cab models is a bit heavier than
the 16"; both should fit just fine. 18" wheels, if OEM, would be for the
X-Runner model with a five-lug pattern.
