Raptor, i initally was thinking like you until i got a tyre blowout in my EF down the freeway.
Luckily though it went completely kaput (flat) at the exit ramp of the motor way where i was able to pull over in a relatively safe spot.
Oh yeah thats the benefit of having a 60 series tyre, i had to drive on the rim abit to get the car to the emergency lane, didn't even scratch the rim.
Keep the spare i say. As to these run flat tyres i don't want to pay another $200 per tyre because of this technology.
