Tire Question…...

So this morning I got a flat, tried to repair it at a professional tire shop and they just couldn't. They said the hole was way to big and that neither a plug or patch was able to seal it "fml" /: . So to make the long story short I found a seller who's got a set of bridgestone pontenza runflats 285/40/19 for 120 each (brand new). Im currently running SVE drifts 19x9.5 would those tires fit on the rear?

yes they will fit fine


13 GT base, 3.55, Sterling Grey, MGW shifter, BMR LCA's, GT500 AB, silver RTR's, 275/40/19 Michelin pilot super sports, more stereo equipment than I will admit to, more parts to come.

IMHO...find another tire shop......patches come in a variety of sizes & unless the core is damaged or its near the corner of the tread, its patchable.

Everyone that I ever knew that had run flats got rid of them. They all said the ride was terrible.

I had run flats on my last 3 BMW's. I don't have many potholes around here but if you hit a big one you'll think your car ws totaled, They are hard as rocks. They wear pretty quick and the sidewalls can and do bubble. Not a big fan.

I take it you didn't get the road hazard warranty...?? I did and just woke up to a flat 2 weeks ago. Small side wall split about 2 inches long and I didn't hit a thing. Brought the wheel to the Ford dealership and they replaced it with a new one, no charge.

+1

I had Goodyear Eagle1 Runflats on my Corvette. NOISY and a really HARD ride. I switched out to Michelin Power Sports (at about $400 each) and it was a definite improvement over the Goodyears. But they were still noisier and a harder ride than non-runflats. It's just the nature of the beast because of the steel reinforcement they have in the tire.
