A Look at the Run-Flat Market

Filed under: Run-flats, Tires — Notch @ 8:21 am

Just-auto has an overview of the run-flat tire market, including some history and predictions of where the market is going.

Over the next few years, manufacturers predict strong growth prospects for run-flats. “We are convinced that the popularity of run-flat tyres will grow”, added [Franco] Annunziato. “There are compelling advantages of not needing to carry a spare wheel and tools, of knowing that you don’t have to stop your car on a highway or a dangerous place, to replace a flat-out tire, of increasing luggage space and reducing the overall weight of your car. So our strategy is to improve the performance of run-flat tyres, and meet the needs of this projected demand.”
