Run-Flat tyres offer a solution. On these tyres, you can drive a maximum of 50 miles even with a flat tyre. You do not have to be afraid of losing control over your car or having to change the tyre on the side of a busy highway.
- Drive a maximum of 50 miles on a flat tyre
- Warning about pressure loss on the dashboard’s display
- No spare wheel needed anymore
How does a Run-flat tyre work?
The tyre has reinforced sides that can carry the weight of the car, even when the air pressure is lost. The tyre works in combination with a built-in warning system (TPMS) in your car. If the tyre is leaking, a warning will appear on your display. Because of the design of the tyre, you would otherwise not even feel a big difference between a flat tyre and a specimen with the right pressure. In case of a warning, always go to a specialised tyre and/or car company like us – Challenger Tyres & Exhausts in Sheffield.
The purpose of the tyre is to give you sufficient time to find a service location for checking and replacing your tyre.
How fast can I drive on Run-flat tyres?
Of course, this depends on the speed coding, but with a flat tyre, you can safely drive at a speed of 50 mph. The tyre has been specially designed for this speed. However, we advise you to drive as slow and careful as possible.
Can each car run on Run-flat tyres?
No. These tyres can only be fitted to cars with a built-in warning system TPMS (Tyre Pressure Monitoring System)
Do I still have to carry a spare wheel?
No. Because there is no need to change the flat tyre immediately and on the spot, a spare wheel is unnecessary. You still have at least 50 miles to find a tyre expert who can replace the tyre for you. When replacing, an identical Run-flat tyre must be fitted in the same size and with the same speed specifications (found in your vehicle documents).
Do I still have to check my Run-flat tyres?
Yes. As with any other tyre, you must also check these tyres for tyre pressure and damage. If the pressure is too low, this lowers the load capacity of the tyres. As a result, the side walls can become deformed, resulting in safety- comfort- and economic issues.
