In the article, the passage really bothers me:
"For those drivers who worried about being stranded, the attraction
of a run-flat tire is its extended mobility..."
Yeah, I'm worried about being stranded. I'm worried about my runflat stranding me! That is stranding me on a road trip, where I have to wait 1 or 2 days to get a replacement runflat tire.
And exactly how would i be stranded if there was a spare?
