Hence for inspection and a 'plug patch' repair, the run-flat tyre must be removed from the rim.
I know mines wasnt even removed from the car, though it never ran flat or had tyre pressure indicator on. It was only because i heard it that i checked and seen it in middle of tyre. The tyre repair place is under 2 miles so drove straight, screw pulled plugged and back out.. never had any problems.
