Tyre puncture can be a nightmare, especially when driving in the outskirts of a city or on a hill station where there isn’t any garage nearby. Conventional tyres go flat as soon as they lose air and require be changing or repairing immediately. This causes serious safety concern having to stop at the roadside to change the wheel. With the recent advancement in automobile technology, tyre manufactures came up with run-flat tyres aiming to provide a concrete solution to all these concerns.
What are Run Flat tyres?
Run-flat tyres enable the car to be driven a certain distance even after being punctured, not having to change it immediately or look for a mechanic. They are designed in such a manner that they maintain their shape and support the car even after being deflated. It’s not that it allows you to drive the car on punctured tyre forever, but to a limit of 50-80 Kms depending on the manufacturer and at a speed of 50mph. This is a good enough distance wherein you can either reach a safe place to change the tyre or find a garage. Tyre pressure monitoring system equipped in the car can alert the driver as the air pressure goes down slowly. With this one can know when the puncture happens.
