Thumbs down Just say no to Dru..Uhhh i mean runflats...lol

haha Most people would kill for your tires and the M-Mobility Kit... I really hate any type of runflat tire.

You got the best, of the best of the best.

But "No," the M6 does not come with runflat, and No "M" vehicles come with runflat tires...

Run flats have stiffer side walls causing suboptimal grip in certain maneuvers (they did when I had them). The higher performance option is typically considered to be our current setup. You really want these over runflats especially if you enjoy "spirited" driving. My driving falls more in the "brutal" range but that is for another forum. One disadvantage though is my runflats lasted longer.
