Tyre and TPMS questions

Post by Dave-H » Wed Mar 14, 2018 8:29 pm

Hi all,

My car currently has Potenza runflats on and a buckled front rim so I’m looking to replace the wheel and fit a set of MPSS. To that end, I have a couple of questions:

1) What load rating should I be going for? It currently has 88Y all round but I think it needs 92Y XL on the rear doesn’t it? Is this right and what does it need on the front?

2) Can the TPMS be swapped from the old rim onto the new one? If so, how difficult is this to do?

Many thanks in advance :)
