The fact that you can continue your journey saves you the risk of having to stop in a dangerous place such as round a corner or on the hard shoulder of a motorway where you could get hit and killed. But the car has to have a tyre pressure monitoring system for them to be legal and when runflats are low profile (50 or less) their strengthened shoulders give a harder ride than a conventional low profile tyre.
