Run-flat tires

Can't Post | Private Reply
I plan to bring my Mini Cooper to Mexico. It is currently fitted with run-flat tires and no spare. I've checked with the dealer who says a regular tire can be used if a run-flat goes bad (i.e. get a spare). Does anyone know if run-flats can be repaired in MX? They can NoB.

I believe that is Bubba's way of saying hurry up and get here. Bubba has been known to be perverse.

That sweet little Mini, what a wonderful car. You'll see lots of them in Guadalajara.

Thanks Esperanza. BTW, I will have a spare tire, besides the one around my middle.

In Mexico many cars roll on four undersized temporary tires. Run-flat tires are simply called "rims".
