What is RUNFLAT tire??
Today, run-flat tire technology is becoming very popular. Run flat tires were first introduced in the mid-1980s, when some automakers, such as BMW, installed run flat technology (RFT) as standard on their cars. Literally, it can be translated as tires that can run Even if there is no air or flat tire itself. The tires are designed to have a particularly strong sidewall and structure. To prevent the tire from slipping off the wheel rim when the tire pressure is lost. So that the driver can support the car to drive for a longer distance and be able to control the car safely in the event of a tire explosion. When such an event occurs, the TPMS or Tire Pressure Monitoring System, which is attached to the vehicle, will warn that the tire pressure is losing. Run-flat tires Can be used when the tire is punctured or punctured. until there is no wind left
Inside Runflat tires Unlike normal tires, when flat or losing tire pressure, it will not be able to support the weight of the car again. And will be crushed if trying to continue driving after a loss of tire pressure (eg when the tire pressure is leaking). Ordinary tires, the structure of the inner side of the tire may be warped. or change shape but run-flat tires The tire on the sidewall can support the weight of the car without deformation or very little deformation. because the tire sidewall area is specially designed Helps maintain good balance and reduces the risk of the car becoming centrifugal force while losing tire pressure. can continue driving for a while This will reduce the risk of accidents.
Run flat tires can run at a maximum speed of 80 kilometers per hour. and distances up to 80 after the loss of tire pressure The car manufacturer may have recommendations that are suitable for the particular vehicle. Please consult your vehicle manual for use.
The main advantages of Runflat tires are: • Safe, able to control the car and drive when the tire pressure is lost. • Comfortable, no need to change the spare tire.
