The TPMS light will be on. Some states will fail an inspection for having TPMS lights on.

Theres not some crazy setup to were it wont let me drive it is there, you never with these new vehicals.
A tire shop can break down the tires and move the sensors although it is usually better to go with new ones in the new wheels. All they do is push the tire bead down, reach in, grab the old sensor, and remove it. Then they push the bead down on the new wheel/tire combo and put the sensor in.

Almost as easy as changing a standard valve stem. No need to rebalance the wheel since they don't move the tire.

I would recommend getting the wheels rebalanced because of the weight difference of the sensors.
