Tires with Run-flat Properties

Item Description
A Standard tire after pressure loss
B Tire with run-flat properties after pressure loss
1 Wheel position with correct tire pressure
2 Wheel position with insufficient tire pressure
3 Tires
4 Reinforced sidewall

In addition to the standard tires, run-flat tires are also optionally available. These tires have a reinforced sidewall and provide the advantage that the tire maintains its shape to a large extent even in the event of insufficient tire pressure. This ensures that the vehicle handling remains stable.

Advantage:

  • These tires maintain their shape to a large extent, even in the event of insufficient tire pressure. This ensures that the vehicle handling remains stable.

Special wheel rims (EH2) and a tire pressure monitoring system are needed for run-flat tires.

Standard tires can also be installed on the EH2 (EH = Extended Hump) wheel rims. Tires with run-flat properties have the same size code and the same appearance as standard tires.

With some tires, the code RF for run-flat is included in the tire designation, e.g. 205/55 RF 16.

Tires with run-flat properties have various different codes on the sidewall, depending on the manufacturer.

  • The RFT logo
  • "RUNFLAT" as an additional designation
  • The additional designation "RSC" (RSC = Runflat System Component)
  • The additional designation "SSR" (SSR = Self Supporting Run-Flat-Tire)
  • The additional designation "SST" (SST = Self Supporting Run-Flat-Tire)

WARNING: If a tire with run-flat properties is used without air then the vehicle speed must not exceed 80 km/h and the vehicle must not be driven for distances in excess of 80 km.

Note: Vehicles equipped at the factory with run-flat tires do not feature a tire repair kit or a spare wheel.
