You mean your stock TPMS sensors? You should be able to switch em (or the tire shop can do it for you). The sensors are attached to the valve stems on your factory wheels.

What size are the rims? What is the back spacing on them? If the back spacing is 4.5 or lower you should be ok. Also need to make sure the lug pattern is the same.

Will 265/70R17 Duratracs work on these rims?

If you are planning on leaving the TPMS from the 2007 you may have issues. I tried swapping the TPMS from a 2008 onto my 2010. APparently there was a frequency change from one year to the next. Now I get to look at the tire warning light until I have the sensors swapped out. But there is no reason the rims wont fit.

Size wise yes might be a little narrow. I had 255/75r17 on my stock and the wheel was a 17x7.5 I'm not sure if the width of the tire will work.

The wasn't a good reason to use the TPMS sensors at all when I got new wheels since my low pressure alarm was always going off anyway because I never run 35+ PSI and I don't have a Procal (yet). I just left them out on my new wheels because the shop that installed my wheels didn't have the required valve stems in stock and I would have had to go back. So until I get a Procal and can set the pressure to something useful like 25 PSI they are worthless. Maybe I'll just sell them with my stock wheels.

honestly that's the best decision... it'll make the deal more appealing and they'll sell faster.
