I never ran runflats (had the dealer remove them for the rubber I bought upon delivery), so it's hard for me to specifically answer your question..

The ride is a bit harsher than stock was for me, apples to apples (same wheel/tire setup). That said, it's so dramatically improved my braking and cornering, I would never consider going back.

I run 19" wheels in the summer, and as long as I'm watching for major potholes, it's fine. I'd say it passes the WAF test, but not with flying colors. Admittedly, there are a couple roads I avoid, that are totally trashed, but generally, I'm mostly just watching for sunken manholes and big potholes.

I love the setup.
