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 blow out.

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 or repaired (if damage permits) as soon as possible.

Tyres2u 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.
