Re: Sienna 2nd Gen Lx Rim swap.

I have a memory that says it won't work, but I can't seem to find the source of information!

What I remember: there was an angle difference in the metal stem attachment to the TRW sensor body. Alloy wheels used sensors with a 20 degree takeoff, while the steel wheels used a 40 degree takeoff. I'll keep looking.

Do not buy Camry sensors! The Sienna, Tundra and one other vehicle use the TRW system, while the Camry uses Pacific (IIRC). They may not talk to each other.

Current: '15 Sienna Limited Premium (FWD), '14 Subaru Outback, '13 Honda CRV AWD.

Past: '08 Sienna LE (FWD), '02 Subaru Outback, '02 Honda Odyssey EX

Re: Sienna 2nd Gen Lx Rim swap.

So I just checked another site, and it says the 40 degree issue only affects TRW sensors on the steel wheels of the trucks (Sequoia & Tundra), and that the sensors in Sienna steel & alloy wheels are the same (20 degree).

I'm not sure you are going to know with absolute certainty until you try and fit them. But I'm leaning now towards thinking they should work.

Fyi, VDO has a sensor look up guide on their REDI sensor website. They do appear to be the 20deg version on my 2011 with alloys.

Re: Sienna 2nd Gen Lx Rim swap.

Hi All. Can you verify that the Camry rims and Sienna rims are interchangeable that you are discussing in this thread? I have a 2008 Sienna CE with alloys and was hoping to purchase 2009 Camry steels with snows ( all 16 x 6 1/2JJ), but the dealer tells me the offset is different and not to use this combo for clearance & safety reasons. I've spent a few hours searching the site and Internet in general, and haven't found a definitive answer yet. Thanks in advance for any help.
