How to identify run flat tyres in the UK

In the UK, run flat tyres are commonly identified with a symbol on the sidewall. Each brand has their own naming and identification means. Look for the specific symbol for the brand of tyres you have. Some may have the letters "RF" or "RUN FLAT" printed on the sidewall. It is important to note that not all tyres with reinforced sidewalls are run flat, so it's essential to check for these specific markings to confirm whether or not your tyres are run-flat or not.
