Run Flat Tires: How Do They Work

So what exactly are run flat tires? In short, run flat tires are exactly what they say they are. They are tires that are able to run even when you have a puncture that would cause other tires to go flat and be unusable. These tires can work even when there is no air in them and can be driven at remarkably high speeds for a fairly long period of time — allowing users to get to a mechanics to have their tire fixed or changed should they need. In fact, most run flat tires can run at maximum speeds of 50mph for a maximum of 50 miles.
