I don't think I would do it. But I would be curious to see if anyone else is.

I have them on my car too, Goodyear Eagle F1 Super car tires.
I don't need a spare or jack.
But you would need a tire pressure monitor, because you sometimes
can't tell if it's flat by looking at them.
Nice if they made them for trailers.

Hot Runr Guy I can't find any run-flats in a typical trailer size, but I'd sure be willing to try these if they ever become commercially available.

Run Flat Tires
