I must've been blind to this. I didn't really notice on any gm stuff...

My unawareness being what it is... I gue I don't care one way or the other.

I was wondering about those run flat tires the other day... I really don't know if they would put them on a car coming out of the factory though. I also don't know if the run flat's work as good as they are advertised to.

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 weight...run-flats are heavy tires. I've also heard that the ride isn't all that great with run-flats.
