Arrow downWhat are Run Flat tyres and how do I know if my tyre is one?

Run Flat tyres are specially designed to allow you to drive for a short distance with a puncture, even when the tyre is completely flat. This is a temporary, emergency measure allowing the driver to get to a safe place to repair or replace the tyre. Run Flat tyres should not be driven above 30mph and for no longer than 50 miles.

Run Flat tyres are not recommended to be repaired and at LeasePlan we will always replace a damaged run flat tyre.

Usually the markings on your tyre will show if they are run flat tyres but if in doubt call the LeasePlan tyre line and they will be able to advise you.
