I keep an eye on the TPMS and if it indicates a "low" tire then I find the nail/staple(or whatever) and remove it and then use a tire plugging kit to repair the tire. Then I pump up the tire with a compact compressor. Keep the kit and the pump in the boot and have used it several times.
Eventually though, I "tire" of the runflats and dump them for conventional tires.
