It has a HUGE effect on the handling of the car - all for the better, let me assure you firsthand.

Don't buy into all that marketing crap about RFT's.. "engineered for runflats" is a load of horseshit. All it means is that they used softer bushings and springs and not-so-desirable techniques to tame the brutally stiff sidewalls. Switching to a better "real" performance tire doesn't cause any ill effects at all.. in fact when some of those compromises come into play with a great tire, the result is awesome handling and increased comfort, which ain't a bad thing at all for a daily driver.
