    Here is what I know. As long as the tire guy is good and careful you can use either styles. If you use the alloy style you can mount and dismount with no issues. If you use the steel style you just have to mount them turned around. This puts them out where they can get damaged when you mount and dismount the tires if they are not careful. I have seen it done with each many times so just get any set. Now with that being said I have a spare set of steel ones. Please ask around this forum and you should see I am correct.

    Thanks for the info. I already have a set of steel wheel TPMS that came with my stock wheels. I will see if the tire place can make them work with the alloys but it doesent seem like it definitely works. Thats why I'd like to pick up a set of the other kind if the price is right.

    Try to find a guy who is open minded. When they put them in the black plastic piece is supposed to hug the inner rim but with the steel style the plastic is at a greater angle and hits the rim before it seats. So all they have to do is spin them 180 degrees so the plastic faces outward. This will put the sensor out where the tire machine will break it. All they have to do is start the tire going on the rim at that point so they know it clears. I used to change wheels like shirts back in the day so I have helped do it and have watched it done a lot. Good luck.

    wat?
    if they wont install them reversed, have them install them using the TPMS straps that hold the TPMS to the inside of the rim, then use a standard valve stem for the wheel.

    I'm not sure they are the same for a 2011. I have heard that they are different but I will check into this. If they are compatible I'm interested
