I'm running on Goodyear Eagle F1's (from Tire Rack of course) after hitting a huge pothole here in DC which resulted in broken sidewall and bulging. Very pleased with them... the ride is better and I like the way they look. Bought 4 tires and a mobility kit.
I'm pretty sure RFT's are only run flat under very specific damage scenarios. RFT's seem to me to be just as susceptible to catastrophic failure as other tires. It just made sense to me to have the lower cost item on this particular consumable. Just my opinion, though.
Oh, BTW, thanks for the entertaining thread guys!
