Advice on TPMS Problem...

i have tpms installed on my 11 m3 which has aftermarket wheels (tsw). i have an ongoing tpms error which says 'tpms inactive' happens randomly and frequently. i just had the car into my bmw dealer for an oil service, and they basically said they wouldn't touch it because of the aftermarket wheels. i do not think they pulled the codes that the obc was putting out--the docs i got say they checked tire pressures and reset the tpms (which i do from time to time myself). i got into a bit of an arguement with the service advisor since the car gave me the error message the day after i got it back from the dealer, and after he had also tried to 'upsell' me on some non-warranty service that i clearly do not need..

is there anything i can do here, should the dealer be responsible for this sort of tpms error even though the wheels are not bmw? thanks.
