With so many new cars using run flat tyres (Self Supporting tyres) as original equipment, it is essential you understand how beneficial run flats are.
Designed with a much thicker sidewall than a conventional tyre, run flat tyres can hold the weight of a car when the pressure drops. This means Their purpose is to keep your car moving in the event of a puncture, so you can get home or to the nearest garage for a replacement tyre.
Vehicles that are compatible with run flat tyres are fitted with a TPMS as standard. This alerts you when one of your tyres loses pressure or has suffered a puncture. A TPMS is an incredibly important security component and without one, you could be left unaware of a loss of pressure. This might result in you exceeding the safety limit speed and causing the tyre to fail.
It depends on your vehicle - You should not fit Run Flat tyres to a car that is not set up to use them, nor should you fit normal tyres to a car set up for Run Flat Tyres.How long can I run on a Run Flat tyre with a puncture or low air pressure?
This really depends on the size and brand of the tyre and the number of people in the vehicle, but as a guide, you will be able to travel 50 miles at a reduced speed up to 50 mph.
Many leading tyre manufacturers such as Bridgestone, Continental and Michelin do not recommend repairing a run flat. Once the tyre has been damaged the strength of the tyre has been compromised. Most tyre fitters will not know how long you have driven on the damaged tyre, therefore would not recommend a repair.
