Default Track wheels/ tires for C7

So I recently scored a set of lightly used OEM Z51 wheels minus the TPMS sensors.
I intend to use them for HPDE only, driving to and from track events.
All this electronics is new to me.
I wonder if the sensors provide any data for proper function of the PTM system and the ELSD as well as the PDR and therefore, need to be mounted on the track only wheels.
If so, then where can i get them and now much might they cost?
If not, then will it throw a CEL or other warnings in the dash?

Also, my track tire of choice on previous car was Nitto NT01 which is not available in correct sizes. Looking for recommendations here as well.
