Tyre Talk

Conditions DriveGuard tyres might not travel 80km after a puncture.

The general rule is: after a puncture with DriveGuard tyres, you can keep on driving for 50 miles at up to 50mph. But certain factors may affect just how far you can run flat:

  • how fast you drive
  • how much you’re carrying (passengers or cargo)
  • how often you need to manoeuvre
  • how much inflation pressure has been lost
  • the extent of any tyre damage
  • how hot it is outside
  • ...

Any delay in the signal from your tyre to the Tyre Pressure Maintenance System (TPMS) might also mean you have already travelled part of the 50 miles limit with underinflated tyres. We therefore recommend that you proceed to a safe and convenient location for tyre service as soon as possible after your TPMS has been triggered.

HOW TO MAXIMISE YOUR RUN-FLAT DISTANCE

Reduce speed as much as safely and reasonably possible. In any case, you should never go over 50mph. Avoid sudden or aggressive acceleration, braking, or cornering manoeuvres and avoid pot holes and other road hazards.
