You can get an RE050A and an RE050A RFT.

Top of my head...Where it says POTENZA RE050A on the lifted area of the sidewall above where it says the tyre size etc, follow it round about a quarter wheel clockwise and there should be an RFT logo if it's the run flat.

84Y is non runflat 88Y is runflat. I'm also looking for a non repaired runflat 225/35/19, i may have to take the jump and get a new one.

Well i had to take the jump tonight it gave out on my home from work, scary when on icy roads. 260 lighter and 2 hours stuck in a tyre garage freezing i was on my way. Rears are worn on inners so maybe time to change to non rft.
