Runflat / Mini Clubman
I have Mini Clubman S 2016 with original Bridgestone 225/35/R19 runflat tyres.
Yesterday I had front left completely flat. I managed to drive up to the first garage, but was unlucky finding the same size runflats. In the end looking around the city I found Pirelli, same size.
I will change either 2 of the fronts or all 4, depending on hows the condition of the rest of the tyres as they are used since 2016 (any advice on that, after how long they should be replaced?).
One of my questions is whether to go for runflat again? This is the first time I have a situation that any of the tyre needs replacement. The only concern is the price - 470$ per tyre and also what I read today that runflats may cause a crack in the rim if hitting a pothole.
Now, I like the fact that I can drive up to a garage with a flat tyre especially that there is no spare in Mini and I don't wish to deal with fixing kit, even though I replaced tyres myself so many times on my previous cars.
In case of going for normal tyres, would they fit on the same rim? I went to check a place, they have Hankook same size but normal tyres - 140$ per tyre.
Any suggestions or opinions?
