    Question Run-flat vs. regular Blizzaks?

    I have a 2000 2.5 RS. For this winter, I plan to replace my all-seasons with Bridgestone Blizzaks on the OEM 16" rims, and get new rims (maybe 17") and summer tires next spring.

    Any ideas about the behavior of the run-flat LM-25 Blizzaks vs. the WS-60? Tire Rack reviews of the both are pretty favorable, but I'm wondering if the stiffer sidewalls of the run-flats would be feel more like a larger rim/lower aspect ratio tire. I don't mind a harsher ride, in fact, it's probably preferred for safety since I'll think I'm going faster and end up going slower 8^P

    I'm not THAT worried about flats, but during crappy weather it would be nice to have the option of driving a little way to a less nasty spot if I did flat and happened to be in a really sodden or dangerous traffic area. OTOH, if the stiffer wall cuts badly into the snow-slush grip or if the 5 pounds extra unsprung weight is significant over bumpy corners, maybe it is not worth it?
