TPMS question

I ordered shorter valve stems to go with my Arc8s and they've just arrived. I'm out of town and can't test fit them but my fiancé sent a pic to me. They're the part referenced in this thread (http://www.zpost.com/forums/showthre...highlight=tpms) but the screw at the bottom looks larger than what came stock and I'm concerned that it's too big for the slot in the TPMS and won't fit. I've attached pictures of my tpms and the new stems. Any TPMS gurus know for sure?

Thanks for the reply. I saw that thread and it references the same part numbers in the one I linked to. I'm sure it's fine. I'm just away at work for two weeks and would really love to be able to finish up my suspension project when I get back without any hiccups.

Does the allen screw on my the ones I currently have get reused with the new valve stem? If so I'm sure it won't be a problem. I was just looking at the pics and wasn't entirely sure what the configuration is supposed to be.

the stem should come with them if you got them from BMW. if the second picture you posted is indeed the new stem... you can see the screw tucked inside the nut.

Hah! Yes indeed. I was wondering what the hell that was in there. Thanks again! My mind is now at ease and I can focus on work for the next two weeks.
