Diggen them up to sell the product.
Must not be able to sell it any other way.

At least the info is helpful. I went throught he same thing when I switched from the band style to the valve stem style on my '08. I did my own research and learned all of this own my own because a lot of the posts here (the forum in general) from various people were contradictory, incorrect, or made zero sense.

In short, you can put valve stem style on a band type car, you just have to make sure the frequency is correct for your year car.

You can also go from stem style to band style but that is harder to do since fewer and fewer companies make the band style in the same frequency as the stem style. They are also prone to creating balance issues and are expensive as hell to replace.

Yea being that much closer to the rotating axis
makes them harder to keep in balance. Not.
Not to mention that the stem type normally weigh
twice as much as the band style and are mounted
twice as far from the rotational axis.
Making them twice as hard to balance as the band
style sensors weighing half as much and closer to the
rotational axis.
