Not saying your price comparisons aren't correct. I went to Kwik-fit with a slow puncture and they diagnosed and replaced the valve for free (i had the tyres fitted elsewhere before) and I even had a nice free coffee while I waited.

Works out £25 cheaper than ATS for a Continental run flat. I paid £110 from ATS 3 weeks ago. Definitely not half price though.

thats a brilliant deal - full set on mine with premium brand is £1,100 - I can get Pirelli's on her for £500 ! Don't Kwik fit price match ?

Don't run flats give a poor ride? Heard that many ask to change em if provided with new car...

Avoid run flat tyres if you like your alloy wheels. Cracks guaranteed.

Really? 8 years and just over 100,000 miles on run-flat tyres and not one cracked alloy. Am I doing something right?

Nice deal.....I might get these fitted to the family Zafira just in case I get persued by a terrorist organisation who are hell bent on shooting my tyres out while i'm on the school run

No deal here. Prices are same as they always were. All that's new is they now show the RRP (which nobody charges)

Yep , had one of those
Incidentally , cheapest place I've found for my Bridgestone runflats is Oponeo and couldn't fault their service

Not cheaper than camskill for me. Shame

poor ride and a puncture away from new set

A self supporting tyre is also wrote off if you get a puncture, so unless you live in an area where stopping and changing a flat is too dangerous, I wouldn't bother.

Not sure about runflats, but heat for bringing this site to my attention at almost exactly the time I need new tyres for my wife's car

Be wary of budget run flats, they are a menace. When I first bought my JCW they had budgets on, was sliding all over the place in the rain. Changed them to continentals and the difference was incredible. Stick to the name brands, paying a little extra is much better than ending up in a crash because you lost grip.

I have 17" wheels with run flats and the ride is fine. If you have big wheels with shallow side walls and stiff run flats then the ride will be harsh.

I only run my big 19" wheels at the summer, and in a single summer I've had 2 wheels crack due to the solid runflats. Come the end of my winter wheels being on the car I'll be changing them for the summer tyres to non-runflats.

Hateful things, Bridgestone RE050. Too hard, no grip in anything but perfect conditions, tram lining. I just can't put the power down without them spinning up.

I have 18" Michelin run flats and they are fine - no cracked alloys or issues. So far done 114,000 miles and the set i currently have on have done 30k - i have heard they are noisy but never noticed a difference between these and non run flats. You do get minor side movement if you hit a hole in the road and it can be quite a firm ride. I would only switch to normal based on price but these make it a similar price. With price of oil tumbling shouldn't items like this fall in price anyway ?

Definitely not true. I've had bmw's with run flats for the last 6 years. No issues at all. Quite the opposite infact.

Hasn't anyone noticed the efficiency of run flat tyres is poor compared to normal tyres? I want to get them off my Dad's BM for normal tyres but he thinks the suspension would need changing due to it being an M-Sport model.

6yrs on rft, 150k miles no cracks here either

That is simply not true. Punctures can be repaired.

Can Run Flat tyres be repaired?
In line with most leading tyre retailers, National Tyres will not repair a run flat tyre following a puncture. Most manufacturers advise against repairing run flat tyres. If the deflated tyre has been driven on, it could have compromised its strength, and it is impossible for a fitter to know if the tyre was driven on for longer/faster than recommended after a puncture. For a brand specific answer you can contact the manufacturers below, but generally it will be hard to find a retailer who will be willing to repair a run flat tyre.national.co.uk/inf…spx

To paraphrase Mandy Rice-Davies, they would say that, wouldn't they?

The same rules apply as normal tyres. If the puncture's small, and on the main treaded area, and there's no damage to sidewalls, then a repair is in order. The sidewalls are stronger than normal tyres - so there is less chance of damage / risk. Any tyre-monkey would know what is safe to repair and what is not by inspection.

Very poor in my mini cooper with 17" alloys.

My Current car, which has always had run-flats, has done 225K and i've not got cracks on the alloys. My previous car which had done 150K, also had no cracks. Also from my experience in buying two sets of tyres every year, is that pneus tyres are the cheapest. Quidco and loyalty points for a £50 tyre voucher too.
I also managed to repair a slow puncture with tyre-weld, never been able to find any information on the legality of this, but can tell you that the puncture occurred two days after fitting new tyres, and lasted the life of the tyre (about 20,000 miles).

I think I'm right in saying that the suspension needs to be set up specifically for run flat tyres to achieve a comfortable ride. But I wouldn't know from experience.

I only have a motorbike and would like a deal on motorbike tyres to appear as I need a new pair. (_;)
