"You can't put non runflat tyres on runflat rims my friend"

Thats pap.. kwickfit have fitted non RF tyres to my old S spokes several times.

You cant fit a RF to a normal wheel (so I'm told due to the need for a special lip on the wheel??!)

But there is nothing that stop a non RF tyre going on a MINI or BMW rim, that as standard have RF tyres

You can't get thicker than a kwikfit fitter! comes to mind!

Of course you can put non-runflat tyres on standard wheels - all thats different is the sidewall structure I think!;)

That's like saying: "It's official from Mickey Mouse: The moon is made from cheese".

Exactly....and he was so nice calling me his "friend" n all ;)

Nob.

All sorted now via Black Circle to come and fit at my place of work some nice non runflats.

back when RF"s were first out there were runflat rims, but this was quickly dropped and has never been the case with the mini, it just seems to have stuck in the brains of a lot of tyre fitters

Not sure Andrew. I find your posts easier to understand and you write in Scottish:p
Wait until you hear me speak using my confused half-American, half-English accent. :p Someone remind me what nationality I'm supposed to be again? :confused:

if kwik-fit say it then it must be true :rolleyes:

there are lots of threads on here that are recent about this same issue. They all say the same thing, non run flat tyres can be put on wheels that recently had runflats on it.!!:smile:
