Just paint the valve stems and cap to match the color of the wheels.

Use the aftermarket stems and strap your tpms inside. You get the best of both worlds.

I went with custom stems & don't worry about the TPMS error. I normally have it in "M" mode out of the gate so the extra light isn't a big deal. If it bugs me I'll give Tom a holler. I think TPMS are a waste of $$ & causes the tire shop to put on a ton of wieghts to balance them. Check your air pressure once every 1-2 weeks & don't worry about it.
