RFT question

I have a set of 16" OEM RFT tires and my friend is interested buying them from me.
He drives a Honda 2010 FIT sport model and he plans to put my tires on his 16" rims.
I guess the bolt pattern does not matter, right?
let's assume his rim can take my tires 205/55/16, will he run into TPMS issues?
or 2006 323i OEM wheel c/w TPMS??

anyone knows I can do that?

bolt pattern doesnt matter cause he is just using the tires.
depends if his honda has tpms. that will have to be installed on his 16" rims.
2006 323i do not come with tpms. btw, bmw did not make a 2006 e90 323i for the north american market.

thanks,
so what you are saying is 2006 E90 don't have TPMS
I know his Honda FIT wheels don't have TPMS.
then it should be fine...

don't know if FIT has TPMS .. but what the potential safety issue is that there is no TPMS on his car to inform him in case that pressures have gone low and that handling will be compromised

then again, what are the chances of getting a flat?

if the car isn't designed to have runflats, not a good choice. runflats are not for everyone...

No Canadian 3 series came with TPMS until 2009. I'm not sure about 2010/11 They all had ABS speed sensors that compared wheel speeds and showed low pressure if one of the tires was low. This is perfect since you don't have to buy TPMS when swapping your tires. BTW why does you friend want RFT? It's like driving on wooden tires
