I bought the replacement TPMS bands and cradles from Discount Tire for my new 18" rims. Those were much cheaper than Ford TPMS bands.
Anyways,the part number of theband (including band and cradle)for 18" rims from Ford is 6F2Z-1A193-E. But you may be better toaskdealership before you order.

Instead of spending all that money on the straps and sensors, have any of you guys tried the pvc idea? I think its genius and it works for less than 5 dollars! I personally like it because I can check my own tire pressure when needed and the monitoring system is more of a hindrance then help when you want to switch rims.
My problem is that I want to retain the sensors in my factory wheels in case something ever happens to the car and I need to switch them back. I also paid for new sensors that have been mounted in my new rims/tires.
I'm seriously considering buying a THIRD set of sensors and training them for the car/pvc tube. this is getting pretty friggin' expensiveAND ridiculous...

I too am looking at replacing my 18" factory rims with a set of 18" chrome. Your statement aboutwheels that are compatible with the system in my car has me curious. Are you saying I need to buy specific brands of wheels. I assume that since I'm staying with the same size wheels, that my orignal sensors should work on the new set without any re-programing?

OK so if I order new wintertires + wheels + TPMS from the tire rack, and I go to the ford dealer to get the car to recognise the TPMS. Then when I want to switch back to the original tires, will I have to go to the dealer again to switch back to the old TPMS, or will they still be recognised by my car as well?
