What's the difference between TPMS sensors?

Anyone know what the differences are in the sensors for alloy wheels and steel wheels? Also, some are listed as 40 degree and others as 20 degree. I assume that's the angle of the valve stem that comes out of the sensor. Anyone know for sure?

My guess would be stem length, but only a guess.
my truck came with the 16" steel wheels and they moved the sensors to my 18" alloys. id say they are interchangable
It is the angle of the sensor. I think. I had the tire shop break one cause it did not fit flat against my new wheels that 4wheel parts installed. I put tires on after I got the new wheels.
Here are a few pictures that show my sensors (p/n 40700 JA01B) installed on my new 18" alloy wheel. They are listed for steel wheels according to this chart but came on the factory alloy 16" SE wheels:

They seem to fit perfectly to me. I don't know if that chart is correct or not. I'd say they are interchangeable.
