DIFFERENCE IN FLAT & REGULAR TYRES
DIFFERENCE IN FLAT & REGULAR TYRES | TYRE SHOP DUBAI
Thinking about tires that did not need replacement smooth after losing air pressure looked like a dream. Now, that dream is a truth. Almost every tire manufacturer in the world is now offering run-flat tires. The technology differs, but the idea remains the same. Certainly, run-flat tyres are costly than standard tyres.
But the way the tyre industry is continuing, we might only see run-flat tires soon.
One of the advantage is that there is no need to carry a spare tire. Therefore, by eliminating the extra weight, you can recover fuel efficiency and use the storage space for other purposes.
On the other hand, we have standard tires. The instant they get punctured, we need to replace them instantly. Driving on a regular flat tire is terrible. Well, not impossible, but we don't recommend it except you wish to damage your wheel. We need all seen people driving on flat tires annoying to make it to the adjacent service centre, instead of waiting for the car retrieval service. Not only will you end up harmful the wheel, but you can also cause permanent damage to the tire’s inner structure, other car parts, specially the steering.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?
The main difference between the two types is the technology and overall construction. The run-flat tires are designed in a way that they can sustenance the sidewall even after whole loss of pressure. Tire makers like Bridgestone, Pirelli, Michelin, Goodyear, and Continental add an extra layer in the tire’s accept to support the vehicle’s weight in case of air pressure loss. The detailed technology varies.
CAN I MOUNT RUN-FLAT TIRES WITH STANDARD TYRES?
It is not ever recommended. The reason is ostensible - the two types are dissimilar from one another. Hence, there is no want to mix them up except it is an alternative. Even then, it would help if you traded the tires as soon as possible. Tire authorities say that mixing run-flat with regular tires can cause difficulties in handling, suspension, and even the TPMS. Therefore, all four tires must be the same.
CAN I MOUNT RUN-FLAT TIRES FROM DIFFERENT BRANDS?
Again, this is never suggested unless it is an emergency. The intention is that each tire brand uses different technologies for its run-flat tires. Thus, by mixing them up, you might feel a slope in performance or even void the tire warranty. As the run-flat tires are significantly expensive than standard tires, annulling the warranty is not a good idea.
WHERE CAN I BUY RUN-FLAT TYRES?
You can buy them at any decent tire shop in Dubai or the rest of the UAE. While they are definitely pricey, there are not hard to buy. But we recommend that you buy them from Newbharathpitstop as we deliver certain profits that no other tire shop in UAE can offer.
