Bridgestone Run Flat did not take long ?
As all you motorists know who own a car with run-flat tyres, the tyres can be very noisy.
This is mainly due to the very hard and rigid side-wall that helps the car tyres act as a semi solid structure, that enables them to stay in a straight line when the tyre is de-flated.
Bridgestone tyres have managed to minimise this hard ride by using different compounds in crucial areas of the tyres, thus enabling them to work at a much lower tone and also
give more comfort to the ride.
One of the grey areas with Bridgestone Run Flat is whether or not they can be repaired? They can in fact be repaired within the parameters of a normal road tyre, as long as the repair is withing the legal tread area, the Bridgestone Run Flat Technology tyres may be repaired, but only in certain conditions (Depending on the distance and at what speed the car was driven after the puncture occurred). If the tyre has been run-flat then we will not repair the Bridgestone Run Flat. if the customer just notices a nail or screw in the tyre, then we will repair the tyre, using conventional tyre repair methods, You should consult your nearest run-flat authorized dealer to have your tyres inspected, pellon Tyres in the Halifax area of the UK.
