    I'm pretty sure you'll be ok since your staying with an 18 inch wheel. If you changed to a 20 inch wheel, you would have to buy new TPM's. I learned this the hard way.

    What? How does wheel diameter determine if your pressure sensors will continue to work or not?

    The issue that you will have is from going to/from steel/alloy. The sensors have one valve stem angle for steel wheels (45) and another for alloy (20).

    Yeah that's what I meant. I had the 18 inch steel wheels on mine and swapped them to a 20 inch alloy. Had to buy new sensors.

    The place I orderd them from said the same, steel-to-steel, alloy to alloy, so is there anyway to tell definitely which wheel is which, I'm positive I have alloys, window sticker says steel, but the sticker also says its a ffv, but I have the black cap and nothing anywhere about E85

    The wheels in your avatar look to be alloys.

    There might be a sticker on the underside of the hood or somewhere in the engine compartment that tells you that your engine is either 3URFE (non-FFV) or 3URFBE (FFV). I think that you're able to tell from the VIN, but I can't recall off the top on my head what that information is.

    You can tell if your engine is a flex fuel by looking at the VIN. If the fifth letter is a "W" it is a flex fuel. Also your gas cap will be yellow and say E85 on it.

    Yep, if it's W, it is a flex. If it's a "Y" it is a non flex. I have a flex myself, I would never put that shit in there either.
