run flats need to warm up

This is the first time i used runflats and i notice that when i start out with the tires cold i get a lot of vibration when i accelerate. Once they warm up theyre as smooth as runflats can be.

anyone else with the same experience or should i be worried.

Yep, and its worse when you park with your tires turned or on an uneven surface. Get rid of the RFTs as soon as you can.

Guess what? This happens with my winter go-flats, too.

Just a fact of life in cooler weather.
