That is certainly a great point in keeping the run flats in. I cringe every time I see someone on the side of a Freeway changing a flat tire. If we think that one little white line is going to protect us from a distracted driver, statistics would say otherwise. I always tell my wife if you get a flat tire no matter what , exit the freeway to the nearest parking lot. I can always buy a new rim. If I had a complete blow out on the HMMWV, because there is so much rubber, would I be able to drive on just the rim or would the under carriage and for that matter even the body be dragging on the ground?I keep my runflats in. I do this to prevent differential damage if I air down at speed. Also allows me to drive off the highway to do repairs vs. losing my legs or my life from bumper injuries at the side of an active hway.
