No I wasn't being sarcastic.

But I'm totally confused now myself. My dealer is adamant that I have run flat tires on the car. But I am not so sure now. The Canadian option list states the 2MT option code as 245/35 ZR 19 and 265/35 ZR 19 Pilot Sports.

Are these run flats or not?

I don't have the car yet to have a close look at the tires. Just prior to delivery, I was informed of a tire campaign to inspect for cracks/cuts in the sidewall. Apparently, three where ok, but one showed possible failure and was replaced.

I'm picking the car up this weekend and will try to get to the bottom of this tire uncertainty.
