Hello, I have used those thread style plugs with great results, however, I believe the original speed rating is compromised after that, or any repair. It will hold under "normal" use, but these cars are capable of much more than that.
I have had cars with run flats. As a matter of fact, my last 2 Vipers had them( original equipment) and generally they are hated and swapped for nice sticky tires. To me, they rode too hard, and were hard to warm up and too easy to find the edge of traction. I felt the benefit was not worth the down side. Buy good quality tires that are not run flats, that was my experience with them.
Honestly, I don't like the goo can either, or the idea of no spare, but flats are rare in comparision to simply driving. I think driving run flats is more of a gamble ( spin out possibility) than no spare.
This has been my experience.
