E70 wheels will not work with F15

Will the wheels from an E70 fit the F15?
The F15 has a different RDC (tire pressure monitor) system than the E70. As a result, BMW does not recommend using E70 wheels/tires on the F15.

My existing E70 lease is up in October so I am stuck! My dealer will extend my lease for a month or two until I get a new one delivered.

I have the BMW bike rack the screws into the two tow hitch points on the fender. You unclip the covers and screw the bike rack at the two points to the rear fender.
