Run flat tyres: FAQs

What is a run flat tyre?

Most newer cars are equipped with run flat tyres, which are manufactured with stronger, reinforced sidewalls that prevent them from collapsing when punctured. This means you can continue driving, carefully and at lower speeds, until you reach a garage for a replacement.

This makes run flat tyres a desirable option for many car owners. But they do have some disadvantages and are not recommended for all vehicles. We explain more about how they work in our handy guide to run flat tyres.

How do I choose the right run flat tyres?

No matter your requirements and vehicle type, we aim to make sure that you choose the right run flats. Overall, the best run flat tyres for you will be determined by several factors, including:

·        The type of vehicle you own

·        The weight of your load

·        The weather conditions you’ll be driving in

·        Your speed and handling

To get started, enter your vehicle registration and we’ll show you which tyres fit your car. Then, add your postcode to see the next available fitting at your local garages. After that, you can book and use our secure checkout to pay for your tyres, with fitting at your chosen garage guaranteed.

Are run flat tyres any good?

Yes! From the trusty Bridgestone Turanza T005, ideal for summer driving in both wet and dry conditions, to the Potenza, which maintains great control in wet weather, run flat tyres are as versatile as they are beneficial.

The Blizzak range has great responsiveness and reliability in cold conditions and is often seen on the BMW X5 and X6, as well as the Mini Cooper, Toyota Sienna and Lexus IS. We also stock Falken run flat tyres that offer exceptional value for money and are available in an XL version, ideal for heavily laden vehicles.

Is fixing a run flat tyre possible?

Whether it's a nail in the sidewall or a collapse after hitting a pothole, the short answer is no.

Tyre manufacturers recommend that you replace your run flat tyres if they're damaged. This is because the reinforced structure and sidewalls make it difficult to spot any secondary damage. At Protyre, we always choose replacing over fixing a run flat tyre.

How much do run flat tyres cost?

Run flat tyres can cost around the same as equivalent conventional car tyres. But you might expect to pay more for a run flat tyre from brands specialising in sports performance, extra load or winter conditions.

Are run flat tyres noisy?

You might have heard that run flat tyres provide a harder and noisier ride. However, this depends on the brand and vehicle combination. Some tyre manufacturers use a softer rubber to offset noise, which can translate to a slightly quicker wear rate.

Generally, run flat tyres have a stiffer and heavier sidewall so, yes, this can cause a noisier drive.

How do I know if my vehicle needs run flat tyres?

The easiest way to find out is to check your owner’s manual, as this should tell you the type of tyres your vehicle is fitted with. If you do have run flat tyres, it should also explain the tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS), which lets you know when tyres lose pressure due to a puncture.

The best run flat tyres are so good at supporting the car that you might not even notice if you get a puncture – but this puts you at risk. For this reason, you should never use run flat car tyres unless your vehicle has a TPMS.

Many brands also mark their tyres so you can visibly see that they are run flat. They may simply say “run flat” on the side or have codes such as RFT for run flat tyre – but this will vary by brand. Check out our handy guide if you’d like to find out more about how to identify run flat tyres.

Can you switch between run flat and normal tyres?

If your car was factory-shipped with run flat tyres, most manufacturers recommend that you continue to use them. In our experience, most vehicles can switch to conventional tyres, but some need a few tweaks. If you’re planning to make this change, we can contact the manufacturer to check for you – so it’s best to get in touch with us first.
