Run Flat Tyres

Instead of getting stuck at the side of the road as you would with standard tyres, run flat technology allows you to keep driving at a reduced speed after sustaining a puncture. It is the ideal solution for modern cars fitted with a tyre pressure monitoring system.



Bridgestone - ROF, RFT or RSC

Getting a tyre blowout is the number one fear UK drivers have about their car, according to a survey by JTape, so it’s no wonder run flat tyres are surging in popularity. Some of the best brands that produce run flat tyres include Bridgestone, Goodyear, Continental, Dunlop, Pirelli and Michelin.

 

Self-supporting run flat technology features a reinforced sidewall to support the vehicle after a loss of pressure. In contrast, support ring run flat tyres use a rigid rubber ring or alternative structure for the same effect. You can usually identify run flat tyres by looking for symbols like SSR or ROF on the sidewall.

 

Although run flat tyres are more expensive than regular tyres, they also come with a range of benefits. These include extra stability after sustaining a puncture, allowing you to keep driving, and alleviating the need to carry a spare tyre, which reduces weight and thereby improves fuel economy.
