Runflats are not better than non-runflats... at all. It may FEEL faster because of the stiff (sporty) ride.. but it's not even in the same league as a good non-rft. I've tracked them both.

Characteristics:
RFT: bumpy on corner entry, slides way too easily, jumps over slight road imbalances, OMG TRAMLINING - don't hit a pothole.. or else.. EXPENSIVE as all hell

Non-RFT: softer, sidewall flex means more tread on the ground to grip, WAY MORE grip, feels slower but is way faster, will save your rims when you hit a pothole, way more predictable mid-corner and exit, easier to correct oversteer.

Bottom line is that the RFT's feel like the car is on stone wheels.
