Blackcircles.com stocks a wide range of run flat tyres from all the leading brands.

What are run flat tyres?

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. Run Flat Tyres Symbol - on the tyre search results section of our website, so you can easily see that a product is a run flat tyre.

Run Flat Tyres: Frequent Asked Questions


How Does a Run Flat Tyre Work?

In the majority of designs, a Run Flat tyre is able to remain functional with no air pressure thanks to a reinforced sidewall.

Standard tyres are supported and remain usable due to the air pressure within the tyres. Once this is lost, the tyre will fail.

The reinforced sidewall of a Run Flat tyre can support the car, minus the air pressure, temporarily.

Yes. A very important component required to ensure the accurate use of Run flat tyres is a tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS).

Due to the fact that a Run Flat tyre can run on zero air pressure, it means that without a TPMS, a motorist may not know they’ve suffered a puncture.

With the TPMS, an alert is flashed up on their console letting them know that they have suffered a puncture and that they will need to replace the tyre as soon as possible.

Yes, in most cases it is possible to switch from conventional tyres to run flat tyres. However, it is important to ensure that your car is fitted with a compatible tyre pressure monitoring system.

As mentioned above - this is essential in alerting you if your tyre(s) suffers a puncture.

Generally, no. Once it has suffered a puncture and been driven on, the structure of the tyre will be weakened.

For this reason, it is dangerous to try and estimate how long it further last. It is always better to be safe than sorry with your tyres.

As with all tyres, regardless whether they are Run Flat or standard, it is important to make sure you look after them - and make regular tyre safety checks. To reduced the risk of them failing.
