What are Run Flat tyres?

shutterstock_146999570Run Flat tyres are designed to remain drivable, for a limited period, with no air pressure at all.

This mean that with Run Flat tyres you can drive safely for approximately 50 miles even with a puncture. This should normally be enough to get you home or to your nearest garage.

How Do Run Flat Tyres Work?

In regular tyres, your car is supported entirely by the air pressure inside. Once this pressure is lost, the tyre will fail.

Run flat tyres have a reinforced sidewall that enables them to be used with no air pressure.  The reinforced sidewall temporarily retains the shape of the tyre and supports the vehicle allowing you to safely continue your journey.

Monitoring Run Flat Tyre Pressure

Because Run Flat tyres are able to run without any air pressure, you need a system to alert you should you have a puncture.

With the TPMS (Tyre Pressure Management System), you will be alerted via a console to let you know when you loose tyre presure. Once this has been triggered, you will need to replace or repair the tyre as soon as possible. This is a vital safety system.

How long do Run Flat Tyres Last?

Run Flat tyres are made from similar materials to regular tyres so you can expect them to wear at a normal rate. To maximise the life of your tyres it is important that they are properly maintained by keeping air pressure up and reguarly checking tread depth.
