Run Flat Tires

I expect the all-season tires currently on the Jaguar will not be usable once the snow tires come off in spring.   I became rather spoiled by the run flat tires on the Corvette,  knowing that anything short of a blowout did not require a spare: 250 miles at 55 mph or less.  But there was a reason that even through Tirerack they cost $300 each.  For the Jaguar,  they are about $200 more per tire,  a bit much for the convenience of never needing to change a tire on the road.

I haven't had to change a tire on the road in 30 years. Steel belted radials are great as long as you stay out of construction zones. (The 3 leaks were nails/screws.)

Anything else is what AAA is for.
