BBS wheels with OEM TPMS inquiry!

Has anybody swapped the OEM '10/'11 ZCP TPMS's onto their BBS LM's (..19's or 20's)? I'm trying to determine if the OEM Beru sensors will work without any modifications. Some places are saying that no additional modifications/adapters are needed, and other places are stating the exact opposite. Any feedback?

Did you mount your 08/09 TPMS to BBS LM's?

Im going through the same situation as you. I just got Lm's also. I was told i could run the the tpms from my oem wheels but im just going to buy the extra set so i could swap wheels easily on the fly. One thing i did find out was the valve stems that came with the bbs wheels in the box do not work with tpms, i was told by bbs to order extended valve stems which should be here today.

What size/width LM's did you purchase? Also, which sponsor did you order the extended valve stems from?

Sorry...tpms came mounted already. Not sure if they had special stems from bbs or not.

I'm using OEM TPMS with my LMs. I did have to order some special BBS valve stems though.
