Runflat tires are a little different, and need people with a little training and tools that won't scrape up the rims. They've been around long enough that MOST shops' personnel are up to speed. Inquire first and make sure they understand you won't stand for trashed rims.

Don't know about Sears - haven't used them for a while, they're probably ok. But I and others use Costco, Discount tire, Firestone, Goodyear, Big-O, Les Schwab.
