As much as the ride may be a little hard, I do like the security of run flats.

Actually, I remember Tiff doing a similar test with a 5 series a few years ago.

That would explain why it's rock hard on our roads then .

Still an impressive demonstration though.

Who needs air.

You guys might like this

The full lap run begins at around 3:25! 7min 24. The 2011 GTR.

Watch the flick into the corners to get the 4wd engaged.

The guy can drive a wee bit me thinks
