What tyre pressure sensors are used originally by Toyota?
Can I use other ones ? Wich ones are compatible?
Can I connect them myself with the car...?

I have a set of alloys with winters on from my RAV4 and my local tyre garage (ATS) explained they can order a set and use an electronic programmer to read the original and then program the new ones to be the same.
Seems to make sense and will let him have a go. A set of 4 sensors look to be about £150.
I have read somewhere how to re-calibrate using the display on the dash.
Way he was talking it is fairly normal for people to have two sets of wheels with sensors in or people buying new wheels and needing it doing to them. I can't see why it would be a problem.

Just been talking to TPMS Warehouse over in Lancashire to clarify what my local ATS told me about buying a set of valves and they have a device that programs them.
His typed comments are pasted below:

"if you can get the old sensor ID numbers (i can retrieve these if you bring the wheels) i can clone them and put that ID number onto 4 new sensors which will tell the car that there is no difference when you are swapping from summer to winter wheel - the price for a set of 4 sensors is £182.40inc VAT & Delivery" Josh.
TPMS warehouse in Accrington, Lancashire

So, the chap at ATS who I have known for a few years looks to be correct. He even showed me a hand held device that reads the old sensor and codes the new sensors.

Will be looking at this in the Autumn.

I was doing it through Google translate and had all of my vaccinations just in case.
Occasionally I go over to the other side but I see it as missionary work.

You can use universal sensors (for example Huf or Schrader). However, you will need a device to program them on your car. The originals can be cloned, or can be programmed using this device.

For a decent TPMS sensor (Huf, Schräder for example, these are brands also used by a lot of car manufacturers), programmed to your car, around 60€ per piece would be a fair price, imo, if done by someone who knows what he's doing. :)
At least, that's the price we charge for a TPMS sensor ;-)
You can always go cheaper, but then you might face quality (corrosion) or lifespan issues (battery) (mind the 'might', not 'will').

Also, ebay doesn't mount them on your car... Unless you have the equipment to mount tyres on rims and balance them properly, you will have to go to a tyre center or so with your internet-bought sensors. They will not mount them for free either...
Whatever you buy, quality and service have their price.
