Is it in a "horse shoe" thingy? Could be offset tire pressure.

Yep. Check your pressure. In the glove box there's a button. After adjusting and stabilizing tire pressure in all four tires press and hold until the light you see lit flashes 3 times. Reference your manual.

What year model do you own? It is tire pressue in either case, but the system works a little different on each one. But I think they both reset the same way. So you should first make sure all pressures are correct and then reset it as mentioned above.

Did you swap over the tire pressure sensors as well? If not it will never go off. 07's have a true TPMS that read tire pressure. 06's and below just use individual wheel speed and have no wireless sensors in the wheels.

The '07s have a wireless sensor inside the tire?

That means you gotta take it out and put that baby in the new tires/rims/refridgerator...

Before I forget. Engi, check your pms.

Just got the pm.. I will plug into the mapping software tonight so I can print it out. I will check my calander as well and send some potential dates for the trip.

Yep, the 07 actually measures pressure. So it has sensors in the wheels. All new cars are required to have that system by 2008 I beleive. It wouldnt be bad if toyota would have given a display and tire temp. There are systems you can order to add to any car with the sending units and a display that gives you temp and pressure for each tire, which would be nice on test n tune days.
