I have an ’05 MCS convertible. I am sick and tired of the run flats. they have useless tire life and are hard and noisy. I have gone through 6 in 19000 miles.
My question is will the spare ft in the trunk with the top down or up? Where do you put the spare if it does not fit? If it will. I am inclined to replace the run flats with normal tires and get the spare.
Yes, not many people stay with the runflats for the reasons you mentioned.
The spare fits upright in the boot area although it does take up a fair bit of space. The only alternative is a flat repair kit like our Mobility Kit or the roadside assistance from your car insurance carrier. In either case, you may need the tools to change the tire, not all MCS came with them. You should have these tools.
