Your roads must be really crappy. I'm on my twelfth year of run flats and do 30k per year. 19" rims for six of those twelve years.

I have had one puncture. Just one.

What if you -had- needed the airbag to fire and it didn't. You could be toast now!

I'm sure you can change it with coding though if you desire.
