Who told you runflat cannot be repair? The dealer who try to sell you the over priced tire and wheel insurance??
Run flats are no difference than conventional tires except for the sidewall. It can be patch if the puncture is not too close to the sidewall. If you drive on the runflat with no air for a long period of time, the sidewall will be compromised, then it needs to be replace.
