You can work around the TPMS system. I will make a new post with some more details when I get a chance. Basically, it involves the TPMS sensors and some PVC pipe. Nate

Also, with the Indirect systems that use the ABS sensors, using standard tires allows it to work better. The Run Flat tires are so stiff, the tire has to be really down on pressure before a leak will make the tire small enough to set it off. With standard tires, the sidewalls give right away and it will work only a few pounds down from a slow leak.
