This is true in every industry.
Read up on the issues with Run Flat tires and their issues and related wheel issues....hundreds of posts on these forums about it as well as car magazine reviews. Some have had several wheels/tires damaged. This was a rare occurrence before runflats. You aren't really trying to deny the issues with runflats are you? Do you work at a dealer?

By the way, have never had wheel damage from a flat non RF tire...of course I always had the good sense not to drive on it as well.
