Runflat tires are defined as tires that can continue running at a designated speed and for a certain distance* even when completely flat (i.e. when internal air pressure is zero). These tires not only contribute to improved safety, but also save resources and reduce overall vehicle weight by eliminating the need for spare tires.
*The speed and running distance requirements of runflat tires vary from vehicle to vehicle.
