My 2012 RR Ghost had Goodyear run flats, and while they were not awful...there was more road noise and harshness than I wanted on a Rolls. The Phantom has 21" non run-flats, and the difference is night and day. Pillowy soft, no road noise, no vibration and handles very well. I am still floored that BMW insisits on RF tires, and put them on The Ghost. A disgrace!

I will take my chance. I got BMW roadside, my insurance roadside, and Michelins roadside. Just cross my fingers that I won't have a flat in the middle of nowhere.

What happens if you have a flat within roadside service? Would they flatbed your car?
