Personally I like the run flats. I've ditched them on previous cars ('06 Mini Cooper, '06 Lexus GS) in favor of nicer riding tires. Not having a spare tire (3rd row) and the fact that I sell real estate, makes the run flats a must for me. If I get a flat while I'm out with a client, the last thing I want to do is change a tire or wait for roadside assistance. The run flats allow me to keep going.
