Morr 19" VS8.2 Wheels and TPMS HELP!

I have a 2011 E92 M3 that I recently got 19" Morr VS8.2 wheels for. I also ordered OEM TPMS sensors and valve stems. The problem is that I test fitted everything and the threaded collar on the BMW valve stem does not appear to thread on the valvestem far enough. I do not want to over tighten it, and risk breaking anything. Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions? I went to my local dealer and there are no washers available (from BMW anyway) to fill the space. I have seen aftermarket TPMS with with a seperate spacer/washer, but I thought the BMW unit would be my best option. Thanks in advance!

Here is a picture to illustrate what I am talking about. When the collar (name I call it) is threaded on the valve stem finger-tight, it doesn't close the gap enough to securely mount to the wheel. Looking at it some more, is the collar actually designed to tighten a few turns beyond finger-tight...kind of like a "locking" nut? I don't want to ruin the valve stem by over tightening the collar. Any help please!

Well, I and Discount Tire figured it out! The newer BMW TPMS do not use a washer at all. They do infact tighten a few turns beyond finger tight. Thanks chuxdelux for the link, I don't know why I couldn't find that!
