Run flat tires and winter weather

I know nothing about run flats or driving in snow or ice, so please forgive if these are dumb questions. I live in So California and didn't feel the need to get AWD or winter package. However, we will be taking a road trip up to Seattle this December and am wondering about the run flats on the car. Weather predictions don't show a lot of snow, but there will be some and ice as well.

Will the run flats be ok? Can you use chains with run flats? Depending upon when I pick up the car - at Pt Hueneme right now - don't think I will have completed the break in period before we go. The trip is about 1200 miles each way. Should I just leave the x1 home and take my Dad's Nissan Titan extended cab......please, anything but that!!!

Any suggestions would be appreciated!
