Will standard sensors have any issues with aluminium wheels?

Since the sensors' threads are brass, they can and will eventually bond to aluminum (if you don't prevent it and maintain them).  We would suggest using a compound between the brass and aluminium (typically we suggest dielectric grease - very easy to find).  These compounds get spread onto the valve stem threads and help prevent the bonding between metals (As a side effect it also helps prevent any leaks).  I also typically suggest removing the sensors at least once per month to ensure no bonding has occurred, though most trucks will require this regardless to adjust pressures.
