Feeler - WTT: My 162's for your 17's

I am considering trading my 162's for either 188 or 187s. Mine have RE050 RFTs on them, but they will need to be replaced. They also have TPMS sensors. If the swapped set has no sensors I will need to pull the tires and the sensors. Some curbage, but relatively minimal. Will update with photos if there is interest. Would want to do this swap over the weekend so I can have the 17s ready for HPR in a few weeks. Depending on condition of your set there could be a bit of "difference-money" involved, one way or the other, TBD. Just looking if there is anyone with similar intent but opposite direction. I live on a dirt road, and the 18's are a bit too harsh for my liking.

Thanks for watching

Nothing?

No one interested in this? I am at a great point b/c tires are almost shot and either they're coming off and I'm trading, or I'm getting new tires and not looking back. If anyone is considering this trade, I'd be interested in talking.

Just keep your 162's and get some non RFT rubber. You'll be happier in the end keeping the larger 18's.

Yeah - kept them and put Conti DWS on them. Little squishy, but better than the RFTs for daily driving. Happy with the outcome.
