Do I need to keep my run flat tyres for insurance purposes?

I have Mercedes E350 with run flat tyres, if I replace these with ordinary tyres would this affect the insurance or my Mercedes service and breakdown cover?

It is always sensible to enquire directly with your insurer in matters such as these, as the terms and conditions may vary between providers, but we would not expect changing to standard tyres to affect your insurance.

Similarly the service and breakdown cover provided by Mercedes may have terms and conditions that dictate that the car is maintained in its original specification, so we would suggest reviewing your policy documents or consulting with them directly.
