What are Run-Flat Tyres?

Run-flat tyres are designed to help you keep driving even when a puncture takes place. 

There are two types of tyres designed to assist when a puncture occurs, with the first being self-healing tyres which automatically re-seal themselves when a puncture happens. These can be inefficient though, as they let air out of the tyre first before the sealing layer can work, thus reducing pressure.

The second type of BMW run flat tyres are self-supporting tyres. These are the type of run flat tyres recommended by BMW. With reinforced sidewalls, they reduce the risk of an accident that is likely to occur by the sudden loss of tyre pressure and can prevent swerving, in the event of a blowout, or having to stop in dangerous places like on the hard shoulder. With a denser sidewall supporting the tyre, it prevents the wheel from collapsing until you can reach a point where you can safely get assistance.

How Long Can I Drive on a Deflated Run-Flat Tyre?

Run flat tyres for BMWs have the technology to allow you to continue driving for another 50 miles at 50mph after damage is sustained.

This means that they are not an end to deflated tyres, but they do allow for situations where you may not have a spare or where conditions are not suited to pulling over and changing your tyre.
