Everything you need to know about Run Flat TyresMFIX
The strengthened or the reinforced sidewall of Run Flat tyres set them distinct and technically advanced from normal tyres. On a Run Flat tyre even if you suffer from a puncture, this will keep your car supported enabling you to complete your journey safely at a limited speed for a limited distance (as per the tyre manufacturer’s recommendation). The reinforced sidewalls will withstand the stress due to under-inflation enabling you to reach a tyre shop to change your tyre. MFIX in Dubai provides best offers and various options on Run Flat tyres.
Benefits and Features of Run Flat Tyres
- The biggest advantage of using these tyres is that, in the event of a flat tyre, you won’t need to change the tyre immediately. This indicates that you can either drive your vehicle to a secure spot where you can buy and fix a new tyre.
- It is possible that you might not be aware of a puncture and rapid loss of air pressure until it is too late. This can lead to loss of control of your car. With Run Flat tyres even if they are entirely deflated, run-flat tyres will remain steady and give you a better control of your vehicle.
- The lack of a spare wheel in the majority of run-flat vehicles will lighten it and give more boot space. Greater fuel efficiency will be possible because of the elimination of the spare wheel weight.
In case you’re wondering if you can fit Run Flat Tyres to a car that didn’t originally have them fitted – or as an option… it’s an emphatic NO!
The wheel that supports a Run Flat tyre is quite different from a ‘normal’ wheel. It has ridges to ‘lock’ the Run Flat Tyre in place. You’d also need a fully functioning TPMS (Tyre Pressure Monitoring System) to support it too.
Having run-flat tyres on your car has a lot of benefits as discussed above. First off, the tyre’s robust sidewalls, which bear the entire load, allow you to keep control of your car even if it is punctured. Second, you won’t have to stop in the middle of your trip to change a flat tyre, especially if you’re on a highway, which is inconvenient and dangerous. The increased boot space brought about by the lack of a spare wheel is another benefit. Finally, because there won’t be a spare tyre to haul about, your fuel mileage will be enhanced. Therefore, the option of a run-flat tyre is available to you if you frequently travel long distances (by yourself or with family) and want to guarantee a hassle-free and safe journey every time, in addition to fuel savings.
