New rims and tires! how about maintenance?

hi everyone. i ditched my RFT and put a 19' rim on my 2011 328i. my question is since im still under warranty and i have a new rims on the car, would they still take my car for maintenance? since i have 4 year maintenance on the car.

i also switched my TPMS from the OEM RFT to my new rims. does it mean i have to switch back to my stock rims everytime i go to the dealership? thanks in advance

If your wheel falls off they probably won't cover that. Joking aside, no, changing wheels does not void your entire car's warranty...
