Summer/Winter tire removal on same wheels

I had an extra set of the same 20" wheels and winter tires that went on/off my FX35 for years. Now that car is history and i've been trying to sell the wheels but haven't had too much luck but also haven't put alot of effort into it. So I was thinking of just getting a set of 19" winter tires for my X3 (SAP) instead of buying another set of wheels and doing the change twice a year. I'm not too concerned about having 19" winters as I had 20" winters for years and it did the job admirably. What I am concerned about is removing/replacing RFT on the same wheels. Is that not a good idea for the tires? Does it reduce the strength around the inner bead of the tires? I am also concerned about wheel damage too. But it saves me the hassle of having a set of wheels to sell and store. Not sure how long I'm going to keep the X3 so that's why I'm asking.
