Non run flat tyres can be fitted to any rim provided you choose the correct size. Tyre inflation pressure loss system will still work as it is measured by wheel rotation speeds (rolling radius) not actual air loss. Do set it up correctly though. We get about 60k km per tyre (Goodyear and Bridgestone) in Australia. Mixing brands is ok in pairs on the same axle. Oh and compusatman, junior driver, forced induction front wheel drive car. Hummmm, I can't imagine why front tyres are not lasting.
Maybe some driver training is in order. Maybe (benefit of the doubt) the car needs a wheel alignment too! I doubt it. Just so you know we pay Au$190/tyre..
