Question Are the stock tires on a 2015 1LE ‘runflat’?

Question in the title...

Also, is there any way to differentiate the runflat f1 eagles from the non runflat version?

Goodyear calls their runflat tech EMT or Extended Mobility Tire. Look on your sidewalls. If that's not on there, they are not runflats.

If they're factory tires, they are not runflats.

The OE Goodyears on the 1LE's are not EMT (run flats).

Just curious, why would you hope not? Have you had a bad experience with them? I know stock they are not, just curious as to your response.

Runflats make for terrible performance tires. They have extremely thick sidewalls which can hold the full weight of the vehicle. This allows you to run on them without air pressure, but it makes for an uncompromising tire that doesn't flex and mold to the road like a good performance tire should.
