Newer prestige European vehicles are often fitted with runflat tyres as original equipment; they neither have a spare tyre or a location where a spare could be stowed away. Runflats are often labelled as RFT (run flat tyre) or SSR (self supporting runflat).
The theory behind runflat tyres is great, they free the motorist from the need to change tyres when they are punctured, all one has to do is keep driving and get the tyre repaired or replaced as soon as possible. But, runflats are never cheap and can be horrifyingly expensive and at times, hard to locate.
At Megatyre, high quality, great value Hankook runflats will always be our first choice; but unfortunately they are not available in every size. We have recently taken on two new runflat agencies with wide tyre size coverage, especially in 18,19 and 20 inch sizes, meaning we can now offer a comprehensive range of runflat tyre options.
If you would like to have a quote on runflat tyres, just let us know your requirements via our website inquiry form, email or call into our Brown Bay shop. It is also helpful to give us some information about your vehicle as many high end vehicles like BMW’s and Mercedes have vehicle specific tyres. The really good news is that our prices may be better than you were expecting!
