HELP, valve stems don't fit aftermarket wheels

I bought esm wheels style 007. They are ccw classic reps. I bought oem tpms sensors and valve stems. The valve stems bottom out in the threads before they get tight. What are my options? Are there shorter valve stems available that would fit? What would happen other than the TPMS light being illuminated on the dash if I went without installing the tpms? Would traction control and abs still function properly?
Thanks in advance for any input. I would really like to get these wheels and new tires on my 07 4.8 before fall really hits.

IIRC stems come at least in 4 different lengths.
Since you have US model, lack of sensors won't affect anything other than TPMS error light/message.

Thanks for the reply. I could live with the light of I had to. But I will try shorter valve stems.
