Your '06 does not use sensors or anything in the wheels.
Odd, my 06 330i must be unique as I have TPMS.

understand that having aftermarket wheels/tires will not void your "warranty" unless it screws something up with the braking system and/or steering. in the event of such a situation, BMW, under law, MUST prove that aftermarket wheels/tires were the sole cause of the problem, otherwise they cannot legally null your warranty.

You are in Canada and you have sensors in the wheels? From the factory? Are you sure?

All Canadian vehicles that have TPMS use the indirect method, where the rolling diameter is what triggers an alert - your wheels won't have sensors built in unless you added them.

I recently bought 4 dunlop winter sport 3d but on stock sizes for my 325xi.(205/55/r16) I plan though to have them installed at the dealership.
Did I say anything about roadside assistance?
