Run Flat Tyres

Run flat tyres are designed to help in the event of a puncture and prevent you from having to change the tyre at the side of the road. Some cars are fitted with Run-flat tyres which are specifically manufactured to keep you on the road for a short while in the event of a punctured tyre and reduce the chance of you having a dangerous tyre blowout.

Built with reinforced sidewalls, run-flat tyres have robust rubber inserts to manage the weight of the vehicle if you get a punctured tyre. Standard car tyres are supported by air and collapse if you endure a puncture.

Although these tyres are called ‘run flat’ tyres, you are limited to 30mph if you have sustained a puncture and you’re limited to a few miles. You must get to your nearest, local tyre garage to get the tyre replaced as soon as possible.

LOW PRICE TYRES AND EXHAUSTS NOTTINGHAM LTD has a range of run-flat tyres to suit your needs.

Can I change Run Flat tyres for standard car or SUV tyres?

If you wish to change from run flat tyres to a standard car or SUV tyres, you must change all 4 tyres on your car. If your car is fitted with run flat tyres as OE it’s likely you will not have a spare tyre or tyre changing equipment, bare that in mind when changing your tyres and ensure you have a new spare tyre and tyre changing equipment.

However, you should always consult the vehicle manufacturer when considering removing your run flat tyres. Always consider that a car was designed and supplied with run flat tyres.
