New rims and tires and now TPM light is on
 
issue i need your help on guys.since i charge the rims and tires my TPM warning is on,no way in hell im buying 22" runflats!! is there a way to shut the warning and the TPM light off?

You'll need to recalibrate via iDrive. The system is activated through changes to diameter rather than actual air pressure, so it won't know what type of tyres are there. However, I'm sure it will coope with your 22s.

i went from 18 " with run flats to 22" with non run flats.doesnt the runflats have a sensor mounted on the rim?

No, there's supposed to be a sensor located on the inside of the rim.
Unless of course you didnt specify that you had a TPMS

Not on the UK spec E70s. The puncture is detected through changes to the rolling diameter (actually as a change to the relative speed of rotation of one wheel compared to others). Perhaps due to legislation there's a different setup for the USA.

Check page 89 of the owner's manual posted at the top of the forum. It would appear that the USA is indeed the same.

i did,and says use only tires certified with RSC.u know the going rate for non-flat 22?

Um, well, not to be mean, but did you read the manual? It should give information on the TPM system.
The TPM system and run flat tires are seperate. You do not need to purchase run flats.
Just as an FYI, you can get away with no sensor for now if you wanted, but in 2008 or 2009, you must have them. They will be mandatory on every vehicle.
Good luck!

It appears that Canada and the U.K. have the same TPMS which differ from the one on the USA models. The USA models have the sensors installed in the rim valve.
