well it wont be a check engine light. on toyotas its a little pic of a tire with an "!" in the middle. its an idiot light. i dont know about your 2008 but it might say "check tire pressures" or it might have one of thoes idiot lights. it really means nothing to us as techs. if the light is on we fill all the tires and check to see if the tires have sensors. (if it has a rubber valve stem, then theres no sensor in most cars. sensors are all metal) so we usually just note it that the car doesnt have sensors and the TPMS light is on just to cover our ***, but we dont look into it.
also as a tech, i can see where they "could" give you problems because of the larger tires, since the trucks steering/suspension components were designed for the stock tires, not 37's, which is alot bigger than stock. the 37's put alot more stress on the components. wheel bearings, tie rods, ball joints especially. plus it all depends on the tech working on the car. you could get someone who is all by the rules and will go talk to his manager that the truck has bigger tires and you could get someone who is chill and just replaces it.
