+1 on this, stock run flats are probably the best ones, best tire (not for snow) by far is the michelin pilot super sport. Most high end cars Lambos, Ferraris and even Ms have them.

Same here. If I take long trips I bring one but I always drive local without one.

so if I do get a flat, I have family/friends who could help me get the spare/jack at my house to help me out.

Get run flats if you want them! they are a much safer tire then non-rft. may give you a slightly rougher ride and cost more but for some its worth it.

Forget run flats and get AAA premium, a free 100 mile tow is farther than run flats or a donut will get you.

275 can work, depends on offset, you should consult e93 guys.

I love my 257/30/19 Potenza RE760 Sport.

Sorry for reviving an old thread but need some advise here. Based on responses here, many people are using non-run flats on their cars. Can someone recommend a shop that will install non-run flats in the NYC metro area? The stores I go to refused to install non-run flats on my car.

Thanks!
