    Two things.
    1. Most don't care for ROF.
    2. Why do such a thing when the Michelin is the best tyre currently.

    A ROF will not do any good in that case. A ROF aides you if you have a sudden fast puncture. In that case the ROF lets you go to the nearest tyre shop for a new tyre. If you pick up a screw or nail. You can do the same wigh both. Leave it in, inflate if needed and go to your tyre shop for a plug.

    Got it— it won’t deteriorate like one did to me and it tore the front airdam off the car.

    Agree, Harsher ride, diminished handling, (amplified in colder weather). 100% of the life of the tire. in the rare case of a total total loss of pressure. Not worth it.
    Michelin is the best choice for OEM and replacement.

    I also ordered the Michelin tires for my Roma. In my experience, it's much easier to patch repair a regular tire than a run flat tire. Cutting away all that foam leaves a surface inside the tire that's tough for the patch adhesion. You often just need to replace that tire (with another run flat to match the others).

    How solidly are your fillings fixed in your teeth? ;)

    I think the highest I've seen is a Y rating, which equals 186 mph. I have Pirelli P7 run flats on my 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia from the factory, they are rated to 149 mph. The ride is not exactly compliant, but it's not as bad as the run flats I've experienced on a BMW 6 series gran coupe, that was like driving on stone tires.

    It's a (Y), not a Y. Y is 186 mph, (Y) is 186+ mph.
