I don't have a spare tire and cant carry one
Im considering not getting run flats.
Roadside assistance and/or a can of fix-a-flat to limp you to a dealership/tire place. Run flats simply allow you to limp along in the event you do get a puncture, but it's not like you can continue to drive on the tire at high speeds or long distances. The added cost for a very minimal amount of convenience is debatable especially after you consider the added cost per tire and the reduced lifespan of the tread. Often times you'll also have to replace a PAIR of tires instead of just one with the puncture which further inflates the cost to you.
I've worked in the automotive industry for two decades and while a good sales person can sell you on the 'benefits' of run flats, the reality is most people don't need them
