Just last week I was in Rapid City, SD, when driver's side rear tire went "flat". Of course it was non repairable as it was a tear, not a puncture. The problem....not a single tire that size in the whole town. Had to have one overnighted for 150-total bill $707. Lost a day of vacation, and had to drive 900 miles in 10 hours to make a meeting back in Nevada. It worked out, but I was not a happy camper. I assume I'm not the only one that time=money, and losing time to no spare is making me consider other brands.
Agree with you on the RF. Instead of spending over $700, I would have purchased a non RF tire and considered that the start of the 4 tire replacement.

Good opportunity to reduce the aggravation
