Any foreseeable issues running smaller diameter rear tires than the front?

Any foreseeable electronic issues with the DSC/DTC/ABS or the tire pressure monitoring system if I run smaller diameter tires (same rim size) on the rear than the front? (for gearing purposes). I have a 06 325i Sedan, so the tire pressure monitoring system should be wheel speed based (does it measure left to right or front to back as well). Thanks in advance.

This is probabaly the best reply I've seen on here this year, congrats kkashanchi

OP everything should be fine with all the sensors, I run a 215/35 and a 225/40 on an 06 325i and have zero issues
