Run Flat Tires

 What are run flat tires?

Run flat tires are a relatively new technology that allow you to not worry about deflation in your tires. While there are many benefits to run flat tires, they still might not be for everyone so read ahead to see if they are right for you and your vehicle.
Not only do the tires themselves help you to save on fuel efficiency because of the material they are made out of, but they can also save you even more on gas because of the extra weight you can get rid. With run flat tires, you don’t need a spare tire or another other tools that would help to change a tire such as a jack and other tools.
Some of the disadvantages for run flat tires include performance issues as well as price. Although they may save you money on gas, this doesn’t really matter if you’re spending a significant amount more on the tires. Also, they are definitely not a good idea in a colder climate. Run flat tires have been known to have issues gripping the road so in order to stay safe behind the wheel you should at least switch to regular tires for the winter.
