How do run flat tyres work?
Run Flat tyres work by incorporating reinforced sidewalls that provide support and maintain the tyre’s shape, allowing the vehicle to be driven even with little or no air pressure.
Can you repair run flat tyres?
The majority of manufacturers advise against repairing Run Flat tyres, as the integrity of the tyre may have been compromised if driven on. Run Flat tyres can be purchased online and fitted at a Advantage store nationwide. If a vehicle is fitted with Run Flat tyres, it is generally advisable to replace like-for-like.
How far can you drive on a run flat?
Do not drive more than 80kms on a Run Flat that has had a puncture. It’s very important that you get the tyre changed as soon as you can. It’s recommended you do not travel more than 80km/h. If you drive more than the 80km you risk damaging the wheel of your vehicle, which will cost you a great deal more to repair than the cost of a new tyre.
