It’s Time for a Change: Run-Flat Technology

At Bridgestone, we’ve always been in the fast lane when it comes to innovation. We produced our very first tyre in the early 1900’s and have been on the forefront of tyre technology ever since. Today, we’re still leading the pack, with the introduction of Run-Flat Technology, the first full line of run-flat tyres—tyres that keep you moving, even after a puncture.

Run-Flat-Technology-Tyres

 

Cool Under Pressure

Run-Flat Technology tyres are available for sedans, crossovers and SUVs. What’s really special about these tyres is that they’re specifically engineered to take a punch (or more accurately, a puncture) and keep you cruising along for up to 80 kilometres at maximum speeds up to 80km/h. How? A super-strong, reinforced sidewall and proprietary COOLING FIN™ Technology are part of what make these tyres special. The reinforced sidewalls help Run-Flat Technology tyres hold its shape and support the weight of the vehicle, while the COOLING FIN™ Technology helps resist friction and redistribute heat, even with low or no pressure.

Run-Flat Technology tyres are designed for vehicles equipped with a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). When your TPMS indicator lights up, you should stop and check your tyres. If tyre service is needed, Run-Flat Technology gives you time to get to a convenient, safe location.*

Because There’s Never a Good Time for a Flat

At its best, a flat is a disruption. Run-Flat Technology tyres keep you moving - in comfort. These innovative run-flats tyres offer great everyday performance for confident handling and a quiet, comfortable ride.
