Always something...
I'm pretty certain you can fit any tire (run-flat or not) on the rims, so long as you replace them with the same size. I would personally leave the TPMS sensors in place, even with non-run-flats; it doesn't know the difference, and it may give your daughter some warning about a tire that's going flat. If she's anything like my sisters, she doesn't know how to use a tire pressure gauge anyway...
