What Are Runflat Tyres 

Runflat tyres are increasingly being used by manufacturers on their new vehicles in a bid to boost safety for motorists. At ATS Euromaster we stock a wide range of runflat tyres at competitive prices.

Drivers can access our range of runflats suitable for a range of manufacturers online, with the products able to be fitted in one of the 340 centres we have across the UK, or even at a time and place that suits you thanks to our fleet of mobile tyre fitters.

BMW and Mini models frequently roll off the production line on runflat technology and now other manufacturers are making use of the technology to give motorists the chance to get to a local service centre or back home before fitting new tyres.

Key FactRunflat tyres are designs with a reinforced sidewall which helps prevent the tyre from disintegrating when punctured. This means you can travel to a safe place to change your tyre as necessary.

How Do Runflat Tyres Work?

Runflat tyres are capable of continued use even after being punctured thanks to their reinforced sidewall, as this will not fail once air pressure is lost. The sidewall is strong enough to keep the shape of the tyre on a temporary basis, thanks to rubber inserts within the tyre.

How Long Do Runflat Tyres Last?

Once a runflat tyre has been punctured and the technology has prevented the tyre from disintegrating, it is not possible to continue driving on the tyre at speed or for a long period of time.

They are designed to give drivers a short period of time to get to a safe place to change their tyre, such as an auto centre or back home. The exact range of runflat tyres is difficult to determine and it can depend on variables such as speed, conditions and the load in the vehicle.

However, if your runflat tyres are not punctured, they will usually last as long as conventional tyres as they are made from very similar compounds.

Reparing Runflat Tyres

The majority of manufacturers advise against repairing runflat tyres, as the integrity of the tyre may have been compromised if driven on. Runflat tyres can be purchased online from ATS Euromaster and fitted at one of our service centres around the UK.

As runflats are generally not repaired after being used at speed for a long period of time, any tyre with a puncture requires replacement. If a vehicle is fitted with runflats it is generally advisable to replace like-for-like.

At ATS Euromaster we have a wide range of runflat tyres, including the Pirelli Eufori, Continental ContiSportContact 5 SSR and the Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 ZP tyres.
