Tires don't explode anymore. You will not save your wheels, you will bend them all with RFT .....guaranteed if you are on 19". If you have a problem with a RFT nowhere near a big city you will wait for a few days for them to find and deliver one.the ride is EVIL. You NEED insurance.
As I said, I have the 19s. Drove the car safely to the dealer at up to 45mph with for almost 30 miles. My rims are fine. In any case if anything happens to them my insurance will take care of it. There is nothing wrong with the rfts.
