Punctures and blow-outs, thankfully are not a very common occurrence these days due to the design and high manufacturing quality of modern tyres. But, however tough, however well maintained and checked, picking up penetrable debris from the roads is unavoidable.
When this happens a tyre will not normally deflate immediately but over a period of time. As the tyre gradually deflates, air pressure inside becomes lower and heat build-up occurs until a critical point is reached, where the pressure is no longer sufficient to hold the tyre in its correct place on the wheel. At this point, mostly in a cornering manoeuvre where extra forces are applied, the tyre bead will move from its 'seat' against the wheel rim, freeing the remaining air (that's normally the 'bang' you hear). With the tyre now fully deflated, it will flap about uselessly, the rim will no longer grip the tyre and the wheel may contact the road surface. At high speeds this condition is usually fatal, however good your driving skills.
TYRON® wheel safety bands are a simple yet effective solution to the danger and inconvenience of punctures, blow-outs and under inflation. With TYRON® fitted, you have the piece of mind knowing that you can remain in control and mobile, should your tyre deflate - at any speed - on any surface.
CONTROL With the tyre kept in place by the TYRON®safety
band, steering, braking and cornering control can be maintained
at any speed after a simple puncture or an instantaneous blow-out.
SAFETY greatly reduces the risk of accident and fatality through loss of control after tyre deflation.
MOBILITY provides traction plus a short runflat or get-out capability. The driver can continue to a safe place to change the wheel.
