Question OEM M6 wheel and tire questions

Good morning. I very close to closing the deal on a set of OEM M6 wheels and tires. I have a few questions that I'd like to ask before pulling the trigger.

1. The tires are Michelin Pilot Sports: Fronts 255/40ZR19 / Rears 285/35ZR19

Q: From what I'm gathering, these tires are not Run Flats. With that being said, will I receive an error message if I were to mount the wheels?

Q: Will I have to, or have the option to install my TPMS sensors on the new wheels?

Q: if in fact the tires are not run flats, what is the best course of action to have the wheels mounted with little to no issue's?

Q: With the TPMS sensors installed, will I receive an error message?

Thanks in advance, Flight20three

Pull the trigger. The OEM set up bolts rignt on. They should have the TPMS already installed so all you have to do is do an iDrive reset once they are mounted and balanced. You can always use your own TMPS if necessary.
These are not RFTs so you will have two options. Get the M6 kit that comes with the M6 which is just a tire repair kit and compressor or you can get a jack and tire package made for situation such as this. Bravarian have a tire and jack package you can get. You should not have any issues once you rest the system with the new tire pressure settings.

Also, will the tires size affect anything (Fronts 255/40ZR19 / Rears 285/35ZR19)?
