I sold my stock wheels and tires with the sensors in them and drove around with my aftermarket wheels without sensors for about 8 months before getting the sensors finally. They can be bought from tousley ford. You can have any tire shop install them then go to the ford dealer service bay and they will activate them for free. The calibration process takes them less than 45 seconds.

you may have the valve stem style sensor though. You really can't tell unless you have a tire removed
Tight Dude, I was wondering about valve stem vs bands because a member on here said he tried to upgrade to the stem but the garage that tried to put them on said they wouldn't communicate with the car, but since Ford just has to calibrate them I think I am going to upgrade to valve stem. Thanks Man!
