United-Kingdom Another Flat day

Hi all,

Got another puncture on my RFT Bridgestone RE50 the second time in 3 months.
Totally fed up with these RFT!.
Is it Ok and possible for me to have all 4 RFTs changed to NON-RUN FLATS?
Rims (R105) 18" and tyres (bridgestone RE050 - 205 40 18).
What will happen to the computer system/sensors of the car if i did that?
Will it harm the car's performance and system?

What non-run flats would be good?

Please advice and thank you in advance.

Cheers and have a blessed new year!

Lots of threads here about dumping run flats. I myself run Bridgestone Potenza Grid 09 all seasons on my MINI and I love them.

Re the RFI indicator, in my experience, as long as all tyres have same rolling diameter it will be fine. The RFI indicator is advising of a difference on rolling diameter of each wheel remember, NOT whether/if the car has run-flat tyres. Hope that helps?
