What’s behind run-flat tyres?
Run-flat tyres are one of the most used tyres in history. The ability to provide drivers with safety even after a sudden depletion of tyre pressure has made major tyre manufacturers take this technology to near perfection.
The speciality of run-flats is that even after it gets punctured, it will allow a driver to drive his car for up to 50 miles without any major issue. Drivers are advised not to accelerate above 50mph, as these tyres are not made to handle high speeds or long distances.
Run-flat tyres mainly use two systems –
- Self-Supporting system: The self-supporting system uses reinforced sidewalls which continue to help a car run after a puncture. PremiumContact™ 6 from Continental is an excellent choice for run-flat tyres. Check out this range of Continental and more from Vicky Tyres in Handsworth
- Support-ring system: This technology employs a ring of hard rubber (or Kevlar) inside tyres which can support the car’s weight even after a puncture. For example - Bridgestone’s CORGHI A4028
