Run Flat Michelin x-ice xi3. Any issues?

So after research on winter tires i settled on the michelin x-ice xi3 for my 2019 kia forte and am getting them through costco. I noticed they indicate having the run flat feature. After looking into this, i see people complaing about run flat tires, how its a harsher ride, hard to repair if needed and having to change out two tires if one is damaged etc. I personally don't care about the ride being a bit harsher but i dont want to have to spend extra money on repairs. Is run flat that much of a nuisance that i should cancel my order and look into alternatives?

Get the regular xi3. It's $200 cheaper for the set and have better ride comfort. RFT are for stupid cars without spare tires in the trunk.
