    The best RFT

    What would be the best RFT, in terms of cornering grip, wet handling and comfort (pliant ride and noise), available in SG? How much for 245/40R18 size and where would be the best shop to buy?

    Ya, RFT is more expensive than normal tyre, typically about $150 more per piece. But it should last longer, may be 10-20%, because it is made from harder compound may be. More importantly, provide high speed protection and for those of us without spare wheel in the boot, peace of mind when going across the border.

    Think other than RE050A, CSC3 comes in RFT too. About $500 for 245/40R18 if I recall correctly. Wish CSC5 comes in RFT but it seems not. F1 Asym 2 also no RFT. Very limited choices.

    Re: The best RFT

    many female driver like runflat and their Hubby and boy friend also like runflat on her car too.
    because they have no worry of FLAT tyre and wont disturb you(Hubby / Boy friend) and your journey.
    not sure which tyre is the best runflat.
    some people best tyre is served him with no problem.
    some people best tyre is cost cheapest is Best.
    I only know BMW developed runflat tyre not for nothing.

    Re: The best RFT

    I thought the purpose of RFT is to improve high speed safety, rather than for the convenience of not having to change wheel ourselves when encountering a puncture. And the compromises are harder, heavier and costlier tyre, with incidental benefit being less worry when travelling in unfamiliar territory.

    So for those who likes to travel at autobahn speed, better to have RFT. Otherwise, normal tyres plus spare wheel or tyre repair kit or both.

    For me, I travel out of town frequently and really do not want my other half to be stranded with a puncture. RFT would allow her to drive the car to a tyre shop without having to change wheel or use the tyre repair kit, both of which I do not think she would be up to.

    Hence wondering which RFT would offer the best grip, handling and comfort, among the RFTs available here. So far only heard of RE050A and CSC3 have RFT versions, both around $500 a piece. Anyone know if F1 Asym 2 comes in RFT version?

    You may try PS2 ZP (RFT), should cost you around $500+.

    My stock car comes with PS2 RFT and it has served me well. One of the tyres has been patched after hitting a nail and it is still fine.
