How is a runflat tyre constructed?
A stronger sidewall on the tyre is responsible for driving stability in the event of a puncture. This ensures that the tyre remains drivable even in the event of a loss of pressure. The shape of the tyre remains almost unchanged. In contrast to normal run-flat tyres, run-flat winter tyres have a reinforced tread with significantly more grooves. This means that a Runflat winter tyre offers more grip in snow and icy conditions than a Runflat summer tyre. With run-flat winter tyres, you are therefore always safe on the road, even in bad weather conditions during the winter months.
In addition to the safety aspects, run-flat winter tyres also protect the environment: by eliminating the need for a spare wheel in the boot, you quickly save 20 kg in weight, which reduces fuel consumption and thus also protects the environment - and your wallet at the same time.
Many people are familiar with this: you are driving on a road with little traffic in winter, suddenly your vehicle swerves to one side and you end up in a ditch. The cause: a puncture with sudden loss of pressure. You were still lucky in this case - a tyre blowout can also quickly end in a rollover. Fortunately, you have a spare wheel in the boot. Now all you have to do is mount the spare wheel and continue your journey. However, if you have little experience in changing tyres, it is completely snow-covered and you don't have the right tools, you will quickly despair of changing a tyre. But that doesn't have to be the case - a run-flat winter tyre promises a remedy.
