Default TPMS sensors from a 350Z fit a 370Z rim?

Will the TPMS sensors from a 2003 350Z with OEM 18ís (Touring) fit in an OEM set of 18ís from a 370Z? Iíve been searching forums A LOT, but have yet to find an answer.

350Z OEM size:
rear: 18x8 (offset +30) 245/45/18
front: 18x8 (offset +30) 225/45/18

370Z OEM size:
rear: 18x9 (offset +15) 245/45/18
front: 18x8 (offset +43) 225/50/18

The used set of 370Z wheels Iím considering come with TPMS sensors, but from a lot of searching in forums, Iíve been reading that the 370Z sensors canít programmed to a 350Z, so Iím hoping I can reuse my 350Z sensors by installing them into the 370Z wheels (hoping theyíre the same threading, length, straight vs 90 degree type, etc).

Also, with the OEM 370Z wheels, will I need longer wheel studs? Again, Iíve been searching lots, but canít find any answers. I know I will need 370Z lug nuts, and from what Iíve found online, it seems I *could* use a spacer in the front, but that would only be to make the wheel come out for looks, but would not be required to keep everything within spec.

I would really appreciate any help with this - thanks!!

Sensors will work on Z34 wheels.

You do not need longer studs but you DO NEED front spacers to bring the wheels into proper offset range (+15 to +30), therefore preserving wheel:suspension geometry and saving the steering response from suffering.

20mm spacers puts effective offset at +23mm front, perfect for your car.

EDIT: I just realized that what I said about the TPMS working on your wheels may or may not be true (although I still think they're fine) as my experience with this is based on the Z34 Sport wheels, not the base 18s. I very much doubt that Nissan would spec their wheels differently between the base and Sport configurations. And, most TPMS monitors are fairly equivalent in terms of the mounting cradle inside the wheel. Just looked at my Sport wheels and compared to the base 18s (pics) and looked at pics of the sensors themselves and they are identically mounted on either wheel.
