Run Flat or No Run Flat

Hi everyone,

I just purchased my first BMW (a 2008 335i Convertible). I also ordered a set of performance double spoke (313 package).

I have heard mixed reviews on run flats.

What are your thoughts on this topic?

Run flats are awesome! You get a flat and are still able to drive it home. What's not to like?

you and your pocket book.
