What are the down sides of a Run flat tire???

I can get a SWEET deal on some Blizzak LM 22 run flats as someone ordered them at my local expert tire and did not pick them up or puchase them or whatever..... its not a tire they stock and they don't want them in their storage any longer!

I just wanted opinions on Run Flat Tires before i i get them for about 50% off

Since you cannot tell if they are flat or not you need TPMS.
They are also heavier than regular tires.

Like krzyss said, they are heavier tires. Check Tire Rack for the weight difference, IIRC it was about 4-5 lbs heavier than the non-RFT

you will need to install a tire pressure monitoring system to run those tires which will most liekly eat up any discount you are getting
