Sorry, I mixed up runflat and FTM. So I didn't mean runflat, I meant the Flat Tire Monitor. This system works with the wheel speed sensors of the DSC. On this passive system theres no sensor or anything else in the rims or tires; so every rim "supports" the system. But if you change the tires/rims so that the wheel circumference also changes, the FTM is irritated and asks for recalibration.

Agree with everything you say! The wheels that were on first are the standard 18" wheels which we will see on the production version. They then put on the 19" CSL wheels. The 19" optional wheels for the production version will be these below. I don't know why there is all this speculation. Seems pretty obvious to me what's going to happen.
