Ouch, sorry to hear about your bad luck. Remember to bust open that tire warranty from the plastic wrap and check its terms -- most of these RFTs have some sort of 1 year road hazard protection. It's unclear whether negligent running of a curb is a "road hazard", but that should be spelled out in the warranty pamphlet.

RFTs do seem pretty nice. I'm pleasantly surprised by how much they drive like normal tires. After hearing all the car magazines bicker about BMW and RFTs, I came in with low expectations. I do like the idea of being able to drive on them after a puncture. Just two weeks ago around here, 3 people were killed on the highway while changing a tire.
