Runflat tyres may still divide opinion in the motoring world, but one thing is certain – if you suffer a blow out they can be a real life saver.
Most of us have experienced the inconvenience of a puncture, which involves either fitting your spare wheel, if you are lucky enough to have one, or even calling on a breakdown service or garage.
However, the hassle and expense are nothing compared to the danger you face if you have a tyre failure at high speed. The greatest threat comes from loss of control of the vehicle, particularly if you are on a motorway.
But this is where runflat tyres come into their own, because they allow you to remain in control of the vehicle and continue driving to safety where you can then have the tyre repaired or replaced.
It is a common misconception that runflat tyres cannot be repaired. Usually a replacement is only needed if you have been driving on a deflated tyre. If you’ve acquired a nail and been able to keep the tyre pressure at a reasonable level then it can probably be repaired.
This is where you can actually save some money. Because runflat tyres give you the chance to get home, you can do some research to find out if your tyre can be fixed and if it can’t, you can shop around for the best deal on a new tyre.
If you had to use a roadside emergency service, the chances are you could end up having to pay to have your car towed home or to a garage, you may then have to pay a high price for a replacement.
Runflat tyres give you the chance to get the best deal available. etyres will come to your home or work and always try to repair your tyre and we always bring a replacement tyre along incase we can’t carry out the repair and we can still have you back on the road in no time.
If the replacement tyre is needed you can also rest assured that our prices are always highly competitive for a wide range of runflat tyres to suit all vehicles, including BMWs and Mercedes.
