Use run-flat as spare or get donut?

I have a spare run-flat tire. I was thinking of fitting it with a wheel so I can use as a spare. Would this be feasible or should I get a spare donut?

Turning Signal Lever (Just blinks once, not 3 times)

Usually, when I tap the turning lever, it blinks 3 times. However, lately when I tap it in either direction, it just blinks once. Any advice?

Can I sell Run-Flats with 20,000 miles?

I swapped out tires and don't want these run-flats anymore.
