Step 1. Open iTunes, and go to Edit > Preference > Devices > Check Prevent iPods, iPhones and iPads from syncing automatically.
Step 2. Connect one iPhone to PC via USB cable, and launch iTunes if it is not running automatically.
Step 3. Click File > Device > Transfer Purchases at the upper corner. Then click Apply at the right bottom. iTunes will automatically sync the purchased ringtones to iTunes library.
Step 4. Then disconnect the iPhone from the computer and connect another iPhone to iTunes. Click on your iPhone, and choose the Tones to open the ringtones tab. Check the box for Sync Tones and then check the ringtones you want to sync. (Note: There are 2 options available, check All tones to sync all ringtone files, or check Selected tones to select the specified ringtones that you want to transfer.)
