Are the stock Bridgestone Potenza S001 run-flats?

I had one rear tire replaced with a Potenza S001, same as the others, except this tire has a higher speed rating. It also has the RFT symbol on it, and the other tires do not.

The lease inspector tells me the other tires are not run-flat.

I'm sure that all the tires are run-flat, but maybe I'm wrong.

I hate lease end inspections, though they have always gone well in the end.

Nope, not run flats on the i8. Its why you have a compressor and a bottle of gunk in the car.

Man, that means BMW put the wrong tire on my car!

I'm surprised still though. I drove about 20 miles on the flat tire to get to the dealership, but no damage to the rim. It was a gaping (and loud) puncture as well.
