I am trying to find out if I can put "run flat" tires on the Mustang Mach E GT Performance model that comes with Summer Pirelli 245/45R20 tires.

That would depend on the load rating of the tire. If the load rating is high enough, I wouldn't see why not.

Better asked at a GOOD tire store where they'll actually find the right answer.

Be aware the run-flats weigh more than regular tires, and that weight is distributed at the outer part of the wheel. This will adversely affect range because of the increased inertia.

EV-specific tires are also designed with sound dampening. You'll probably lose that and pick up more road noise when driving if you switch to run flats.

I am wondering the same thing. Probably for a different reason. I have a bad habit of hitting curbs. My depth perception is a bit questionable. It would probably come out cheaper is I get eye surgery. With a good tire warranty I have only had to pay for one tire in the last 7 years.
