FYI, the Pirelli all season runflats are available at tirerack, for $415 EACH! To your point, I would bet that those same areas can't get ANY 295/45-20 in a pinch either.... Not exactly a size someone in BFE stocks, I suspect.

Re: Run-Flats

Just buy an extra and cram into the empty spare tire space maybe.

Re: Run-Flats

AAA FTW! Like $100/year for full coverage, just have to make the call one of these day hahah. Anyway, my take if fix a flat will work in SMALL holes in the tread BUT will also make your wheel vibrate over time due to it being out of balance from all the crap in the tire as you just shoot it in and roll it around. Beyond that its decent but your better off with a simple $5 plug kit and a nice $50/$60 AC air compressor you can plug in the cig lighter and pump the tire back up! Thats my solution until AAA since towing is a bitch if/when you ever need it (accident and so on)
