I too have the Dunlop run flat tires. Upon inquiry the dealer told me that a warning would pop up on the display if a tire was flat. Accordingly to them, the sensor is neither in the tire nor the rim, but in the ABS unit. It measures the diameter of the wheel and as the diameter shrinks during a flat tire, the warning displays accordingly.
If you want to use larger rims (which I was thinking about) or different size tire, they said the sensor needs to be disabled.
