Default RUNFLATS--need a sample wheel

Hi.
I have researched a runflat system that not only holds the tire on the rim like a Tyron system, but almost maintains the rolling diameter in the event of a blowout.
By preventing the drop to the rim, control should be significantly better especially for IFS. I can explain if requested.
The attachment has the information.
I will order the system but the company needs a Alcoa wheel to design the custom runflat. Then the system will be available for all 365’s
Obviously, I do not want a spare wheel.
Can anyone help find a wheel?? Short term loan or damaged?

Please let me know.
Thank you,
Ross MacKillop

I would think the company would be willing to shell out the $500.00 to further their product line if there is a market for it even if the market is small
