Yes

Mixing run-flat with non-runflat on the same axle is stupid

All 4 tires should be all the one construction type, either all runflat or all non-runflat.

I would suggest to change straight away to RF or not at least same on same axle. It is not good for suspension and other things you will damage something or you will kill your self...

The least I would do is don't push the car at all until you get 4 matching brand and construction tires installed. You would be surprised at how unstable a car will be with tires that weigh different on each side, never mind RFT/non-RFT.
