Run Flat Tyres
Many people agree that the main benefit of fitting run-flat tyres is that it means that you do not have to worry about carrying a spare wheel while driving and struggling to change it at the roadside in the event of a puncture. With Run Flat tyres you can continue to drive on for a while until you reach a convenient place to stop.
Run-flat tyres have been designed so that the tyre bead remains fixed even when there is a loss of pressure on the rim. Even at high speeds, the vehicle is still safe in the event of a puncture in the tyre.
Fitting Run Flat tyres means that the risk of the tyre coming off the rim of the wheel and damaging the wheel is reduced where there is a loss of pressure. The tyre can maintain its shape for a while after a hole appears.
Run Flat tyres have reinforced sidewalls to work even when they have been perforated.

It is important to note that Run Flat tyres should always be changed by a specialist and here at Auto Surefit Motoring Centre, Wolverhampton we are fully trained to ensure the correct fitting of the tyre. The side walls of Run Flat Tyres are less flexible than conventional tyres due to their stiffeners. Incorrect installation can therefore easily cause internal material damage.
