A "I HATE RUN FLATS" Question: I've repressured left rear run flat about once/month on my '05' S convertible for 3 years relying on the "Yellow Light" indicator. I have a round trip work city street route of 2 miles and occasional 10 mile highway jaunts. Potholes and speed bumps are common and the ride is rough as a result. If I were to get a total tire failure I would probably just continue to drive to nearest gas station ( 1/2 mile max) and convert to normal tires.
- How would new tires be sized?
- Do I need new rims.
- Does car handle any worst or better?
- Will other mini drivers stop waving?
- Do run flats cause my 14.5 miles/gallon milage performance which has been unchanged for 3 years?
