Runflat Tyres

Runflat Tyres

Runflat tyres are the tyre type of choice for many car manufacturers. Also known as self supporting tyres, and once the reserve of armoured and security vehicles, run flat tyres are designed to be driven on, in the event of a puncture. The upside of this is that if you get a puncture on a dark country road in the middle of the night, you should be able to either drive home or drive somewhere for the tyre to be replaced. This meands you do not have to stop to fix the tyre, as runflat tyres also offer great protection against a tyre blowout, which can have disastrous consequences.

Although the range at which a run flat tyre can be driven on varies due to a number of factors, at sensible speeds it's thought that most run flat tyres can be driven on for around 50 miles, although each runflat tyre does vary in its puncture related performance. The technology behind runflat tyres is pretty simple, the main difference between runflat tyres and standard tyres - is a reinforced sidewall which continues to support the weight of your car in the event of a puncture. The sidewall is incredibly tough, allowing you to get where you need to be, within a 50 mile radius.

There are of course advantages and disadvantages to using run flat tyres, on the one hand - run flat tyres are the safer type of tyre to use, and also negate the need for a spare tyre to be carried - reducing weight and increasing boot size. Runflat tyres are however, more expensive to replace, which can put many motorists off.
