Question for Non-Runflat owners

As I am considering upgrading to 20's, I was wondering if anyone has experienced a flat tire/blowout? I assume you would contact roadside assistance. Assuming fix a flat won't work, do they bring along a spare tire? I am asking because I am apprehensive about dumping the runflats.

I had my first flat in over 15 years last summer in my old 335 with non run flats. BMW sent a flatbed that got there in 16 minutes. The tire wasn't able to be saved because I tore a gouge out of it on a pothole so my dealer gave me a loaner for overnight and put a matched non-RFT on it the next day. It was easy as anything.
