2004 rims on a 2009 clubman?

Hey everyone. We just got our first Mini (a 2009 clubman S) and since the snow is still flying her in Minnesota, we immediately bought a set of 16" rims from a 2004 mini to use with winter tires. I didn't realize, however, that the 2004s didn't have tire pressure sensors in their wheels. So, does anyone know if the TPMS sensors will fit in pre-2007 wheels? I've read that the sensors need to have a flat space in the rim.

If that doesn't work, and since we're not willing to spend thousands more on new wheels from the dealership, is there any way to disable the car's tire pressure warning until we put the summer tires back on?

Thanks in advance.
