Run Flat tyres have been constructed specifically for the purpose of remaining functional, for a limited amount of time, when there is no air pressure in the tyre. In the incident of a puncture whilst driving, a run flat tyre can still be driven on for around fifty miles - giving you time to drive home, or to a nearby garage safely.
It is possible to switch from conventional tyres to run flat tyres, however, in doing so you need to ensure your car is fitted with a compatible tyre pressure monitoring system. This is essential in relaying to the motorist if the tyre suffers a puncture.
You tell whether a tyre is a run flat tyre by checking the sidewall - unfortunately there is no industry standard code to represent this.
Different manufacturers use different symbols. These include: • Continental Run Flat Tyres – SSR • Dunlop Run Flat Tyres – DSST or ROF • Goodyear Run Flat Tyres – ROF or EMT • Bridgestone Run Flat Tyres - ROF or RFT or RSC • Michelin Run Flat Tyres – ZP • Hankook Run Flat Tyres – HRS or have B at the end of the product number (e.g. K115B) • Pirelli Run Flat Tyres – RSC • Yokohama Run Flat Tyres – ZPS
To ensure you can select the right type of tyre, Blackcircles.com uses a 'Run Flat' symbol - e.g. - on the tyre search results section of our website, so you can easily see that a product is a run flat tyre.
