Expect at least 50 miles range, depending on load, at speeds up to 50 mph. Get the tyre renewed or repaired as soon as possible. If you’re replacing a run-flat tyre, then new one should be the same make.
Can you fix a run flat tire with a nail in it?
If your car is equipped with run–flat tires, you might not notice that the tire has lost its air pressure, as run–flats have reinforced sidewalls that let you keep driving. A run–flat tire with a nail in it could be repairable, but it will most likely need to be replaced after running flat.
Is run flat worth it?
Run–flat tires can be great insurance against getting stranded due to a flat, allowing you to get to a safe, convenient location for a tow or a tire replacement. They save space and a little gas. Sure, they can be expensive to replace, but not significantly more costly than comparable modern non-run–flat tires.
What are the disadvantages of run flat tires?
The Advantages and Disadvantages of Run–Flat Tires
- Run–flat tires are much more expensive than other tires; 40 to 75% more.
- Because they’re so heavy, they can reduce fuel economy.
- The tread on run–flats does not typically last as long as on other tires.
- They don’t grip the road well when temperatures are colder.
- They don’t provide the most comfortable ride.

Even with tougher rubber, run flat tires do wear out quicker than regular tires. If buyers are experiencing wear at around 20,000 miles, that’s less than half the life of an ordinary tire.
Can run flat tires be plugged?
Run–flat tires are designed with reinforced sidewalls that allow the tire to be driven for a limited distance without air. Some run–flat tires can be plugged, if a patch is placed over the plug.
Are run flat tires noisy?
Because these tires aren’t fitted to most vehicles, many repair shops don’t stock them. The other big run–flat tradeoff is how these tires negatively affect a car’s ride and handling characteristics. The thicker sidewalls not only result in increased road noise, but a harsher overall ride quality.
Do run flat tires weigh more?
Better stability after a blowout: Because this tire can support the vehicle for miles without air, a sudden deflation results in less weight transfer and tread destabilization. But it won’t be as much as you might expect since run–flats weigh more than regular tires due to the added sidewall reinforcement.
Can you put regular tires on a BMW?

Do I need run flats on my BMW?
The answer is not as difficult as you might think. BMWs can make the switch to non-run–flat tires, the same is true when switching to dedicated winter tires. If you decide to make the switch to non-run–flat tires, a road hazard would leave you stranded on the side of the road without a spare to put on the car.
Can run flat Tyres be replaced with normal Tyres?
You can‘t mix run flats and standard tyres. Run flats are only fitted to new cars which have a TPMS, tyre pressure monitor system. If you want the cheaper option of replacing a run flat with a conventional tread, you will have to buy four – actually, make that five, because there will have to be a spare too.
