Question Anyone try runflat PS2 ZP?

I need to replace my rear tyres and was wondering if anyone had tried the PS2 ZP tyre? Does it make the ride much harsher? Is it as good as the regular PS2 in the handling and braking departments?

Would a 275/40-18 fit the rear without a problem? They do not make 265/40-18 PS2 ZPs.

Any thoughts?

I'm afraid to ask how much a run flat PS2 would cost!

People who have runflats as Original Equipment often complain about how hard they ride, even though the car usually has suspension tuning that is supposed to account for how stiff the tires are. They are substantially stiffer and also heavier

Putting a runflat on a car that is not designed for them will mean an even harsher ride. I would strongly advise against it.
