The Corvette has run-flats from the factory. I seem to remember the Vette being the car that the run-flats were designed for, but that may be inaccurate, so don't anyone quote me on it.

I believe there are a couple other cars in the market that you can get factory run-flats on as well. It's an option, but they're from the factory.

Everything I've ever heard about the run-flats says they work as advertised. You can't go autocrossing on them, but they will get you safely to a repair place without damaging the rim. I've heard that they somewhat hamper performance. Part of that is are heavy tires. I've also heard that the ride isn't all that great with run-flats.
