Any help would be appreciated... I'm sticking to my stock wheels and the dealership is doing the fitting for $15 a wheel.
Because Americans are not intelligent enough to check their tyre pressures the US Government has mandated Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems on all new cars over there, so US tyre dealers will usually think you need the TPMS sensors.

E92325i is partially correct, we have Flat Tyre Monitors on our M3s which detect a flat tyre due to reduced tyre diameter and increased wheel speed using the ABS. Of course we don't have runflats, we have a pump and tyre goo...which I had to use once...don't drive on rough dirt roads...
