Run Flat Tyres Northampton

Are you looking for Run Flat Tyres for your vehicle? • Run Flat Tyres with or without rims as additional protection in case of a breakdown

Run flat tyres allow safe handling of the vehicle in the event of a complete loss of compressed air. Depending on the model selected, RFT tyres can travel approximately 60 to 100 miles after a tyre damage and the tyres can even be driven at a speed of approx. 50 mph. This means that car drivers don’t need to do a tyre change at the roadside, which can be dangerous, or have to wait for the breakdown assistance to arrive. RFT tyres are available as a summer tyre as well as a winter tyre for your car in our Superior Auto Hub’s shop. Many brands already offer these tyres with the proven emergency running characteristics for many different cars.

The construction of run flat tyres

To make it possible to continue driving with tyre damage, run flat tyres are equipped with reinforced side walls. These prevent the tyre from flattening or bursting in the event of sudden air loss. A further task of the reinforced side walls is the transmission of the steering, drive and braking forces in your passenger car. Run flat tyres are mounted on specially shaped rims that prevent a damaged tyre from leaping off. RFT tyres in the form of winter tyres certainly have the snowflake symbol. If there is no snowflake showing on the run flat tyre, it is not a real winter tyre.

Optical signal for tyre damage

To indicate to the driver that a tyre damage is present, run flat tyres must have a tyre breakdown indicator. This shows the damage of the tyre by an optical signal in the cockpit. Run flat tyres offer the additional advantage that it is not necessary to carry a spare wheel with a rim. Due to the associated reduction in weight, run flat tyres also enable reduced fuel consumption.
