What are Run Flat tires?

 

Run flat tires are designed to continue to perform for a limited amount of time, even if there is no pressure in your tire further to a puncture or a tire damage.

In general, if driven cautiously and under 80 km/h, tires will be functional for up to 100 kilometers. This is enough for the driver to get to a garage or a tire specialist to resolve the issue. Vehicles with run flat tires do not have spare tires. We can help you find the nearest garage by clicking here (www.blackcircles.ca.ca/en/garages/)
