There is no driver who is not afraid to puncture the tires driving on the road, not long ago it was a major problem. Manufacturers of tires decided to relieve participation of drivers and created a new division of reinforced tires, which was called RunFlat.
A distinctive feature of tires is a further reinforcement of boards. When a conventional tire deflates, it simply sinks under the weight of the vehicle, the side move away from the disk and sides flattened on the road. Reinforced sidewalls of tires Run Flat keep the tire on the rim, and successfully kept the weight of the car after a puncture and a complete loss of pressure for some time.
As for how much it is possible to pass on a punctured tire with RunFlat technology – it depends on the drive speed and the tire itself (approximately 70-160 km at a speed of 80 km / h).
This technology has several advantages:
the possibility of repairing the tire;
the ability to get to the nearest service station;
significantly reducing the level of risk at the puncture;
lowering the risk to damage the disc;
no need for a spare wheel.
