I believe that robbiev has run-flat tires on his car. For run-flats, I've heard it both ways, that if the tire simply deflates you can get it repaired, but driving on the run-flat tire once its flat will wreck it and you have to get a new one.

On the other hand, run-flats have stiffened sidewalls, so this might be the same thing.
