From time to time bad things happen. Every driver knows that a flat tire can ruin your day. In such moments, we all dreamed about the same thing, a tire that will go an extra mile.

Now it is possible to equip your ride with Run-Flat Technology tires. With Run-Flat Technology tires, you can drive up to 50 miles at a speed of 50 mph after an air loss,which will allow you to get to a convenient stopping place. Refer to the individual vehicle manual for the maximum speed and distance the car can be driven safely after a puncture as it is subject to certain conditions such as weight and structural design.

The sidewall rubber ensures Run-Flat Technology tires can fulfill their function by supporting the vehicle's weight and load at zero pressure. To support this weight, a harder rubber is used. These tires are equipped with specifically made wheel beads to prevent the separating of the tire from the wheel.

Plus, the new rubber will reduce heat generation by half when driving on tires that have lost air pressure.

We were really stunned by the video filmed by Bridgestone showing the DriveGuard Run-Flat Tire, check it out here:
