Removing run flat tires

I plan on getting my rims powder coated. Will the removal of the run flat tires for the process cause any issues with sensors etc? Can they be removed and re-installed like regular tires?

Removal of run flat

I was under the belief that once you remove the run flat from the rim it has been compromised. No longer a run flat -- just a tire at that point.

Yes it's fine to remove and remount tires-I did the same thing-make sure they don't powdercoat the flat mounting surface on rim back - I had vibration issues and discovered they powdercoated the mount point on mine-I ground it off Back to raw aluminum and problem fixed.

Just picked it up today. They completed the job in 14 hrs. This place was recommended by a friend that owns a collision shop.

Looks fresh. What is the attachment above you rear window? I think the black base model rims look better than the standard. Good job.

I put continental dws on my wife's X5. Car rides great. No issue going from run flats to non-run flats. Run flats sort of a waste of money.
