Pocono-- Your new wheels should accomodate your existing TPMS sensors, and generally they swap straight over. Tire Rack will confirm this.

However, remember that '08 Dodge Truck TPMS sensors allow for a minimum of 60# of pressure for the front tires which usually necessitates "E"-load range tires. Most non-"E"-load range tires have maximum pressures less than the minimum required for the '08 TPMS system (not in all cases, but a lot). That's a bummer because it excludes a lot of cool tires.
