RFT tyre on NON-RFT wheel ?

Can I mount RFT tyre on normal wheel ? Can I sell my RFT tyres to someone who has Audi and he can put it on his normal wheel ?

Cheers

Yes it should be possible. The bigger issue is whether TPMS is available on the other car. The reason it's important is that when RFTs puncture, the sidewalls are stiff enough so you may not notice the loss of air when driving. In that case, you need to rely on the TPMS system to notify you of possible performance degradation.

My size is 205/55-16 and I dont have TPMS sensors. So it is possible to mont these tyres on any rim and on any car ?

Cheers
