I have 20k miles on my stock run flats, staggered.
they are wearing out the corners, fierce!
grip is better than I imagined from the summer, oem rubber.
noise isn't that bad.

but alas, time for new tires.
I ordered mich pilot sport 265 rear and 235 f, not run flats.

LIGHTER, BETTER, QUIETER.

My question is similar but different to the OP's.

I only drive this car in the summer, but sure I've hit a pot hole or two, once it's was a VERY bad one. I though for sure I had a bent wheel and tire. but nothing.

my question is:
in a pothole situation...
is a run flat going to protect a wheel better than a traditional tire?
