Driving without run flats its like driving without airbags. I think $500 bucks is worth it when you pop a tire on the highway. Plus you save the rims.
Really? They're comparable to airbags? Ok,I guess different priorities for different people... performance>convenience everyday

This is one of those things where it's tough to prove. BMW quotes the x drive at 4.8s to 60 with the run flats. 4.8 is more than adequate for most folks. If you can find a 335 x drive doing the deed in say 4.2s, which is impossible I guess so I will lower it to 4.6 then you have a point that rfts are robbing performance. Most publications have reported braking and lateral g numbers in line with the best in the segment, the ATS for example. The burden of proof is upon you sir
